Swarm: the under-the-radar-flying decentralized storage killer
So, you're likely as disappointed by the Filecoin conundrum as I am. But do not despair! Another project, from the Ethereum foundation, that most people are unaware of have been making A LOT of progress in the last year while flying under the radar: Swarm
I've been following swarm since it's inception and I can tell you, the last months it's made very great progress towards being the incentivized, decentralized data layer the web3 revolution needs. I know this might sound a bit bold, but I believe this is the IPFS/Filecoin/Storj/etc-killer.
You might think I'm posting this to shill BZZ, the ratio/balancing-coin, but no, I don't think it's something anyone should invest in (and you CAN NOT right now, anyone claiming otherwise is a scammer), but rather, think of as a very interesting utility-token.
The network effect on the entire Ethereum ecosystem of being able to build dapps that are data hungry, applications on parity with Spotify, Netflix, Youtube, will require a tech like this.
So, help out these devs, they need people to test their client, it now has the incentivization contracts deployed on göerli, so you can run a bee node, upload and download, even stream videos in HD!
