Storj Share – Earn money by sharing your hard drive space

Storj - Friday Favourites with Richard Tubb

Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.

My Friday Favourite this week is Storj Share – Earn money by sharing your hard drive space.

What is it?

Storj (pronounced Storage) is based on BlockChain technology and aims to become a cloud platform that cannot be censored or monitored or have downtime.

Storj Share is a desktop application that allows you to securely share your hard drive space with others in exchange for STORJ – a cryptocurrency.

How can it help me?

Storj Share - Earn money by sharing your hard drive space. At the simplest level, Storj Share allows you to earn money by sharing your hard drive space. You are paid in cryptocurrency.

A recent Friday Favourite I shared, – Earn Money by Answering Messages and Completing Tasks, pays you in BitCoin. Cryptocurrency payments are becoming more much popular for shared services.

Storj is an open source, cloud storage space shared by the community. You can rent out your extra hard drive space to the community, and earn money for doing so.

Storj uses blockchain features like a transaction ledger, public/private key encryption, and cryptographic hash functions for security.

It’s very easy to set up. The Storj Share application presents a simple user interface where you can check your hard drive space and then allocate how much free space you’d like others to be able to use.

I used Storj Share as an autostarting app on my home server. I’ve got loads of hard disk drive space going spare, so why not share that space and earn a few crypto coins too?

How much does it cost?

Storj Share is free to download and install.

How can I get it?

If you don’t want to share your hard disk space, but simply use the Storj Cloud, then you can also do that. My referral code will give you a $10 credit.
