Siacoin (SC) is a cryptocurrency that facilitates the blockchain to pave its way elegantly into cloud storage space and make dramatic restructuring to it. While providers like Google Drive influence the current market, Dropbox and others, blockchain technology demands to create its application on Cloud Storage Space. Sia is a digital cloud storage space, powered by blockchain technology. This creates decentralized online cloud storage for users, which is rented when not utilized, for a particular amount that is paid in Siacoin cryptocurrency. In comparison with other storage services, SIA’s storage space comes at a much cheaper rate because it is used by a greater number of individual users. The revenue transactions are done using SC digital currency.
Blockchain acts as a ledger which holds the records of who stores, what and all the payment transactions. This is then broken into a storage unit of equal sizes, hashes them, and divides them into many host storage sites. The SC technology does not store all its files in one single server; instead, it makes many copies of the files on different hosts. This comes in useful when one of the servers fails, the information or access to it isn’t lost. The user alone has the key to access his data, and he/she will have to provide Proof-of-Work from time to time to put the clients at ease.
