Through a simple connector, Storj tracks the usage of both commercial
customers and non-paying open-source users. Whenever data from an
open-source project is stored on the platform, we return a significant portion of
the revenue earned back to our partners.
In addition to sharing revenue, we share all the necessary tools, components
and connectors needed to incorporate decentralized cloud storage into your
platform. Easy and effortless.
