Storj DriveShare Test Group B 2 PB Milestone Reached

26 Jan


Storj has announced that they have achieved another milestone in their testing phase, passing 2 TB of total storage shared by over 750 users currently participating in the Test Group B running the DriveShare application and sharing free space on their hard drives. Storj still has about 400000 SJCX to distribute as rewards for Test Group B users (users are required to have at least 10000 SJCX in their wallet in order to receive rewards from the beta testing). The Test Group B will continue to run until the promised rewards are distributed and then Test Group C will be launched which will be focused on testing actual file transfers on the P2P network including latency, bandwidth, throughput and more. For the moment the software only generates dummy data on the user’s hard drive for the shared amount of storage and does not download or upload it, so the next testing step will be focused on that part of the functionality of the service.

Recently we have posted a short guide on how you can participate in the Test Group B using the latest version of the DriveShare GUI software along with our experience going through the process of creating a StorjCoin X wallet and getting more than 10000 SJCX in it in order to be eligible for the rewards in Test Group B, so we are going to keep you updated on the testing progress and future development. You can test the DriveShare GUI software even if you do not have the 10000 SJCX coins in your wallet, but then you will not be eligible for getting rewards for your efforts. With that said if you are in for the rewards you should not expect to get too much SJCX coins as a reward for your help at the end of each month for participating in the testing phase, the rewards are there more as a token of gratitude for helping in the development of the service.

So its not profitable any more to start whit this?

Don’t think it ever was or will be during the testing phase, however it should become when the service officially launches…

So the fine print is that you have spend about $200 to put into a wallet before you can get the reward. It could be just a way to pump the price.

@ admin: Thanks, for your awnser. Ather the blog of 20e January I was under the impression that yielded money:
I even build the setup, had a lot of FUD in me about the 10.000 sjcx.

You are still going to receive some coins as a reward for helping with the testing, distributed on a monthly basis, the exact procedure for distributing the rewards or what are the amounts based on the space you are sharing is not well described, so we’ll have to wait and see. As for the 10000 SJCX required to received rewards during the testing, you should be looking at them as a long term investment as when we move to the next test group nearing the service launch and when it launches they might be worth way more than they do now.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but what does this have to do with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies?

Is this some kind of P2P filesharing site where people share harddrive space with each other?

If nobody is going to answer my simple question then I’m not going to be interested in this crap. It seems that this obviously doesn”t have anything to do with cryptocurrencies and mining, so it shouldn’t be on this blog site. -.-

The service is powered by Blockchain and uses crypto currency tokens, though they not mineable in a traditional way.
