Allocating 1GB (of unused memory) to DataHop you can store and distribute a whole 1h movie. The aggregate storage capacity at the edge of the network (i.e., in users' mobile and WiFi devices) is more than the storage capacity of a server farm - we just need to connect the right dots at the right time.
Effectively you store-carry-and-forward content and act as a data mule as you move around the city. There are hundreds of transfer opportunities in places such as trains, restaurants, coffee shops and workplaces. You’re not just connected to the network - you can be part of the network.
The more you move in crowded areas and the more memory you have contributed to the system, the more content you share with others transparently. In turn, the reward you receive for your contribution to the system increases accordingly.
Our sophisticated D2D connectivity module guarantees that you won’t spend more than 10% per 12hrs of participating in the system.
All content is encrypted and you can only watch content you are entitled to, i.e., based on subscription and DRM policies. Transfers happen between anonymised node IDs - we don’t care who you transferred content to, only how many transfers you did.
As well as distributing video content further, you can watch it wherever you are (subject to DRM policies), even if connectivity is not available, without consuming your mobile data.
