decentralized storage encryption

Encrypt & Upload Files

Files are encrypted client-side before being uploaded to our network, ensuring data is stored securely... and we don’t stop there.

files being split into pieces

Split Files & Distribute

Encrypted files are split into smaller fragments and distributed to optimal Nodes across our secure, global network.

node storing data and getting paid

Store & Retrieve File Pieces

We pay Hosts to run Storage Nodes where file fragments are privately stored, making data breaches a thing of the past.
