About the Episode
We are bullish on file storage using the blockchain. The cloud is just someone else's computer. And you are susceptible to others accessing your data (see Dropbox hack)
A blockchain solution would empower decentralized end-users: files are encrypted, distributed, and then distributed in redundancy all around the world.
You’re the only person who can access your files. Not even someone hosting your files can get to them, theoretically.
