You’re right. I totally agree on what you’re saying.
There is always a dilemma.
On one hand, I want to utilize these HDs as much as I can within the rule.
On the other hand, I undermine the decentralization of the network.
Classic example would be GPU mining and other coins. Though I think balancing between capitalism and decentralization is very important.
In case of Bitcoin, I think incentive plays a bigger role than decentralization but that is a huge topic opening for debate.
I believe the so called ‘ingress’ limitation per IP prevent this centralization, so if the system balances itself there will probably be a soft limit of space I can utilize. perhaps 20TB as many mentioned per IP? and then I will not have additional utilization.
My node is new. For 3.5 days, I utilize only 8.7 GB. This probably takes ages to fill up.
If this is the case (which seem to be), I probably need to mix between Storj and other HD minable coins BHD may be? but I haven’t tried.
Did the Burst coin and that is a true scalability but it creates no value and not so good atm
