No, you have to read between the lines with these messages. They are not allowed to disclose many types of requests for information from the government. But they wouldn’t remove or stop updating the warrant canary if they didn’t get a request for information. We can only assume that has happened. JT was just saying that these warrants are basically useless if you keep your encryption keys private. This might mean that the request was for someone who used Storj to share their data and didn’t keep their keys private. But due to the non-disclosure nature of these requests, we’ll never know for sure.
Obviously some free tier user uploaded leaked documents on reptilians in the US government and FBI came after Storj. This explains why free tier was reduced. There can’t be a different explanation, occam’s razor and such. In any case, don’t upload more leaked documents on reptillians in the US government, they don’t like it. There’s a good documentary on this, it’s called They live.
Free Tier was not reduced due to any FBI anything.
We also felt that anyone wanting to test the service did not need as much space, as we also weren’t converting substantial numbers of free tier users to paid tier users, so the decision was made to reduce the size.
Also from what I remember I found it mentioned on some forum. But not sure where. I remember when I tried chia, it isnt a project that I was willing to support. storj is a project that I am supporting because I believe in it, and recently actively started using it for personal projects and data.
