I know this might be sliding into another thread yet- but what about something like a CDN for Steam/Epic/EA/etc ?
Storj/Tardigrade is really good a geographically dispersed, high throughput, durable content delivery… right? And part of the platform is that it’ll pull only as many pieces as it needs to complete a block (<80 total pieces) from up many SNO’s, simultaneously(checks off agg bandwidth requirements, ie I cap my steam at 400Mbps). I mean games are not getting any smaller, similar to the film industry’s 4k and soon 8k movements, and they all need storage and distribution, world wide, to get their product out to a consumption point. There’s nothing saying that Storj/Tardigrade couldn’t be that S3, or direct uplink.dll/so, backend CDN for all that- right?
Edit: Thanks @Alexey for splitting
