Storj (pronounced ‘storage’) is an alternative to centralized cloud storage platforms, such as Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services, and enables individuals to make hard drive space available for rent. Other users of the Storj can then rent this space and use it to store their files. Storj is built on the Ethereum blockchain and uses advanced blockchain technology to ensure that hosted data is fully encrypted and safe.

Traditional centralized cloud storage options, such as Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services, store data in huge data centres. However, Storj operates a network of thousands of independent computers around the world. Because of the efficiency of this, the cost of the storage of data is far less compared than traditional cloud storage services. Anyone with a strong enough and consistent internet connection and a few extra terabytes spare can also join the network and be rewarded.
Storj was developed in 2014 by Storj Labs, the company behind the Storj network. The company was co-founded by Shawn Wilkinson and John Quinn. The newest version (Storj V3) was launched in 2019.
