How to find Katherine Johnson and Storj Labs:
At Storj, their mission is to enable the decentralized future, and their vision is to be the storage layer for the decentralized internet.
To make their idea a reality, they have created the world’s first decentralized cloud object storage network, Storj DCS. Storj DCS is private by design and secure by default, giving unique data protection and privacy versus centralized cloud object storage options. Default encryption, user-assigned access controls, affordable and predictable pricing, a robust library of technical documentation, and a vibrant user community enable developers to confidently, easily, and economically leverage decentralized technology to take control of their data.
Storj started as the brainchild of Shawn Wilkinson, their founder, when he created the first model at the Texas Bitcoin Hackathon. Later that year, Storj received its first funding to build the world’s first Decentralized Cloud Storage network. As of 2021, Storj Labs currently has 60+ globally distributed employees, in dozens of countries, and they are continually growing. Storj DCS provides private, secure, and economic cloud object storage and currently stores 4PB across 13,000+ active storage devices (Nodes) in 87 countries worldwide.
