BitDust

decentralized on-line storage network

exchange PC resources with other users
 
BitDust network is a voluntary association of people sharing resources of their personal computers

trust & cooperate

Imagine a situation when two friends and you agree to help each other to store some important files

peer-to-peer transfers

Both of your friends upload data on your computer, and you in turn can use their free space to save your files

data redundancy

This creates redundancy, but allows you and your friends storing important data in a safer way

fair resource allocation

This is a fair deal, because all three are interested in safety, reliability and privacy of stored information

distributed data storage
 
input data is divided into blocks and fragments, encrypted and uploaded on other users computers

suppliers & customers

  • all data is stored on users machines
  • suppliers provides storage space
  • customers rent space on supplies's machines
  • you can donate and consume at same time
  • every supplier keeps a piece of source data

reliable storage

  • redundancy factor is 1:2
  • data arranged in a RAID array
  • ECC method determines the target node
  • two parallel layers: Data and Parity
  • up to 64 suppliers keeps your data

high security

  • every user posses his own Private Key
  • all data is encrypted before leave your machine
  • your suppliers have no access to your data
  • no way to recover your files if you lost the Key
  • protect your secret Key as good as possible !

maximum privacy

  • we do not use any passwords!
  • everything is peer-to-peer, no authority servers
  • digital signature protects your identification
  • incognito mode "masks" your real IP address
  • data disintegration hides your files completely

automatic rebuilding

  • software monitors every piece of uploaded data
  • fresh node replaces unreliable supplier
  • ECC method allows to rebuild the lost fragments
  • reconstructed fragments transferred to new supplier
  • let program working 100% time to keep data reliable

support other users

  • basic values are: requested and donated Megabytes
  • give to others twice more of your own consumption
  • wait until other people fill your HDD with their files
  • keep your machine working and support other users
  • no monetization yet - development continues
BitDust is another way for collective security
 
only together we will create this new reality

join development

  • clone source code from GitHub or gitlab.bitdust.io
  • run from Python sources, test on your local machine
  • learn how all things going to work from the Wiki
  • contact developers to get answers and be in touch
  • select a task for your current level
  • open an issue, report a bug

media support

  • study Wiki pages, ask questions
  • help to translate and spellcheck the docs
  • write articles and tutorials, create videos
  • tell your friends about BitDust
  • promote BitDust to participate in IT-conference

financial cooperation

  • everything costs money, why not sell the free space on your PC?
  • suppliers can earn $ if donate a lot and stay reliable
  • those, who not agree to donate HDD space will have to pay in $
  • BitDust company will take a small tax, and make huge profits
  • we developed a detailed work plan and ready to start cooperation

here is my story
 

Hi! My name is Veselin. I started developing a distributed computer network in 2008.

I'm not exactly sure, but it seems that alien intelligence has taken root in my mind a few years ago. At some point I realized that I was obsessed with the idea of full decentralization of the Internet.

Later I saw that not only my mind was "decentralized" - a number of p2p projects aimed at distribution of information flows is in development or are already widely used: BitCoins, Torrents, SopCast, Tor and many others.

Long time ago, when I was in school, I began to learn programming, because it is very fond of playing computer games and wanted to learn how to create them yourself.

But intergalactic consciousness was spreading more and more in my head and gave me the strength and the ability to go to the target. I continued to learning more and more different technologies and now possess experience in many modern IT areas. It seems that I am able to perform almost any task related to programming.

This project is my life's work but very clearly understand that I do not accomplish this task alone and invite everyone to cooperate. Together we create a network of new generation and make the World a better place.
