The start of the blockchain for data storage and data protection Sharder wants to increase its data storage space to provide a storage hub for the island blockchain application..
The new app, Called boxes, it increases the sharder’s memory by an additional 96 terabytes. The current storage center currently processes 32 terabytes.
Paul Rogash, Sharder’s chief marketing officer, told Cointelegraph Boxes that it will act as the storage hub for Iceland and will be released in the third quarter of this year.
“Boxes will interact with other blockchain applications to provide more security and storage,” said Rogash. “One of the main applications is the upcoming Iceland app, which is in the final stages of development.
Iceland, a confidential data storage app, launches worldwide in October. Rogash said Iceland reached out to Sharder last year and signed a development contract in February.
Sharder provides secure file storage on multiple blockchains. The data is encrypted and then divided into blocks before being distributed to different nodes. The company said its model ensures data is more secure this way. It also allows for easier authentication and data validation.
“We don’t save any data that you have to call all the time. This is sensitive information and you want to protect this medical file or police report, ”Rogash said. “You want to make sure the information is very safe.”
Together with Iceland, Sharder is already working with SignEase and Filecoin, who are also working on a decentralized main storage network. Sharder also has a token, SS, to pay for storage services. Rogash said the company is in talks with other companies to offer boxes as a secure data storage center.
