I’m at 412 plots or 40.782 TBytes. That’s a lot of storage to be using for something
that’s not really doing anything or making anything. But, I’ll continue on for another
couple months. I’m using about 1.8TB of storage a day for Chia… I’ll run out of
spare space in another month or so..

Anyway, here is my idea. There is a MASSIVE amount of storage being reserved for
chia that’s basically Lottery Tickets. Wouldn’t it be cool if all that storage was
actually being used for something? Say, GENOME Research? Heya Bram Cohen !!!

You are the one who setup bit torrent, I know it’d be pretty easy to have data shared
across multiple computers and without to much impact on the computers doing the
storage you could store stuff inside of all those files. Distribute 1 PB across 10,000
files and do block assembly at the head end. Heck even store them on 10 computers
for faster read or 100. Nobody wants to take them down for sake of potentially loosing
out on the Lottery… So a file could be recreated pretty easily.

Or calculating PI to some insane number…. Or something scientific. I could think of
a few math problems that would be intersting.

Or Perhaps that’s already the plan?

23PB That’s larger than all the data storage companies put together. It’s such a big
number it’s hard to imagine Only things I could come up with only look at what an
actual PB is, not X23….
