  • Cost-Effective — Storing your data on StorX costs substantially lower in contrast to centralized cloud storage services.
  • 100% trustless — You will have sole ownership over your data rather than any third party.
  • Open-Source — StorX believes in a transparent approach and the software utilized for the platform is completely open-source and developed by highly skillful and experienced software engineers.
