Today, the Storj Labs team is excited to announce we have launched a waitlist for farmers who would like early access to the next version of the Storj network. Community members who would like to join the waitlist can visit the Storj Labs website to reserve their slot as one of the first people to share their hard drive on the V3 network. We previously opened a V3 waitlist for developers, companies and other people who would like to store data on the new network. **This waitlist is for farmers who would like to share their excess hard drive capacity with the network in exchange for STORJ tokens.
At the launch of the alpha and beta of the new network, we will be limiting both farmer and renter access to ensure we can maintain a healthy balance of both supply and demand. This will improve stability and testing, while also limiting any impact to reliability, performance or file durability as we fine-tune the platform for production launch.
Farmers who join the waitlist will be given early access to set up a storage node on the network.
The Latest on Network V3
Our team has made significant progress building V3 of the Storj network. Just this week, our engineering team released an update that highlights the latest development milestones. We also recently released a V3 overview video with Storj Labs Director of Engineering JT Olio, where he explains how the new network will overcome many of the limitations we’ve uncovered in the current system to improve reliability and scalability, while also achieving AWS S3 compatibility.
