Founded in 2014, Storj already has ninety thousand farmer nodes in two hundred different countries. These nodes have about sixty-nine thousand registered users who perform over two hundred and forty million transactions monthly.

The startup intends to expand its holdings and add higher-value data in the future.

Golub continued:
“The next milestone for Stroj is the release of another architecture. We are on an exabyte scale. We receive tons of demands and thus need more farmers to keep up. Our goal is to increase its efficiency for users”.
