Mydatabox must be a data backup and sharing platform offering a real security for these customers. Decentralization, popularized by Bitcoin, is the best solution to date.
- Jonathan Forte, developer at Mydatabox
Decentralized file storage systems like Storj have the potential to eliminate high markup costs and market inefficiencies and provide a much higher level of privacy, reliability and quality of service than we see today.

Split files into hundreds of segments allows to decentralize through nodes
Impossible, even for Mydatabox, to decrypt and read a segment
The worldwide nodes distribution creates a robust network against all types of attacks
When a node disconnects, losts segments are copied immediately
The best technology to protect your files because they depend on any authority
Join the network by creating your node, you will be daily paid for each hosted segment
With Mydatabox, no need to buy Bitcoins or Storjcoins to use Storj.io. Mydatabox serves as a bridge, easy to use, to store data in the Storj.io network. We will do the rest. Specifically, here's how it works.
When creating your account, Mydatabox create a "bucket" of the size selected on the Storj.io network. A bucket is simply a storage space.
Mydatabox create an access key to the bucket using your user and password. This key is used to send and retrieve files in your bucket of Storj.io network.
When you send a file in Mydatabox, it is immediately transferred to Storj.io. We do not keep copies.
When you download a file in Mydatabox in reality you download a "stream" of the file from the Storj.io network.
Costs of the Storj.io network (in Storjcoins) are paid by Mydatabox. So you have to renew your Mydatabox plan using the payment method of your choice.
All communication between you and Mydatabox and between Mydatabox and Storj.io are encrypted using 128-bit SSL.
