What is Sia?
Sia is a fully open source cloud storage platform that is user-focused and completely decentralized. Sia exists through a blockchain-based marketplace that allows users to discover and connect to storage providers to store their data. Instead of giving data to just a single provider, the data is split up, encrypted, and then redundantly stored across dozens of storage providers. This means that no individual storage provider has any amount of control over the data. From day 1, the user has the power. A blockchain also means that there is no central company controlling the prices, and no terms-of-service or unfriendly privacy policies. It's a revolutionary way to put your data in the cloud.
