We are pleased to announce a partnership with the decentralized cloud storage service, Storj.
The partnership sees Numio applications utilizing Storj DCS (Decentralized Cloud Storage), and Storj adding the non-custodial, zkRollup powered, Numio app as an operator payment option.
Kicking off the first phase of the Storj integration will be the Numio app offloading key digital assets to Storj DCS, an encrypted, decentralized object storage product. This does two important things—it allows the Numio app to be more performant with optimized file storage, and it also further abstracts assets such as profile photos, token images and other application media to the decentralized cloud.
The second phase sees Storj adding Numio as a payment option for Node Operators. This integration allows Storj to make significant savings on Ethereum Gas fees when making bulk payments to Storage Node Operators. Node Operators also benefit by having direct access to the instant, low-fee transactions (and forthcoming DeFi features) offered by the Numio app.
With our shared ethos of privacy, security and user control, we are happy to add Storj as a Numio integration partner.
Storj DCS is the world’s first open-source, decentralized cloud storage layer that’s private by design and secure by default—enabling developers to integrate the best data protection and privacy into their applications as possible. The zero trust architecture, multi-region high availability, default encryption and edge-based access controls minimize risk and give only you, or those you grant permission to, access to your files. The result is that you take back full ownership and control of your data.
Numio gives you more control over your digital assets and your identity. Founded in 2020 with a vision to make crypto simple, Numio allows you to send crypto instantly, save up to 100x on Ethereum fees and verify your digital identity in a safe and secure way. Available on Android and iOS, Numio was the first zkRollup powered mobile payments app to be released on Google Play.
All Numio products are non-custodial, so only the account holder has access to their money.
