In your post, you’re reaching ~13MB/s when downloading using uplink binary ran on OVH’s servers. This indeed might be OVH’s capacity limit. Still, you might get even better results (we’ve seen hundreds of megabytes per second on good internet lines) if you optimize some configuration, starting with parallelism
Your document states that Storj runs on its own blockchain model, but for the interaction, the user does not need to know about the blockchain at all.
My understanding (although I’m happy to be corrected) is that, whilst Storj used the Ethereum blockchain for hosting its STORJ token used for the transactional and economic model of the company, the storage technology itself is not in any way blockchain-based as you seem to imply
Hi @miohtama – great to meet you. It would be awesome to find a way to promote your blog post and findings to our wider community. Can you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can start a conversation!
Storj does not run its own blockchain, but it is a token on the top of Ethereum network.
STORJ token is one thing, Storj distributed storage is another, different ecosystems. Only similarily is that Storagenodes are paid in STORJ tokens.
