Storj – An Evening with Shawn Wilkinson, Founder, CEO and CTO

Bitcoin Brisbane is very excited to announce that Shawn Wilkinson – Founder, CEO and CTO of Storj – will be skyping into the Meetup to talk about the origins of Storj, its recent successes and what is next for the decentralised cloud storage blockchain technology company.

Storj (pronounced: storage) aims to become a cloud storage platform that can’t be censored or monitored, or have downtime. It is the first decentralized, end-to-end encrypted cloud storage that uses blockchain technology and cryptography to secure your files.

Storj is a platform, cryptocurrency, and suite of decentralised applications that allows you to store data in a secure and decentralized manner. Your files are encrypted, shredded into little pieces called ‘shards’, and stored in a decentralised network of computers around the globe. No one but you has a complete copy of your file, not even in an ecrypted form.

Note: due to the time differences Shawn will be skyping in at 8.00 pm Brisbane Time (6.00 am his time) so the meetup will be starting a bit later than normal.

Also note that the entry to the building is locked after 6pm so we will have someone on the door until 7.15 pm. Please let us know if you are going to be late so as we can come down and get you. Text me on 0407928417

If you are coming along for the first time the building entry is Brisbane City Council’s Information Centre next to Aromas on the Queen Street Mall.

A big thank you to Fishburners who have provided the space for our meetup.  As it is an extra special meetup Fishburners will be shouting pizza, beers and cider.

Aayush Patel, Fishburners’ Office Manager will join us at the commencement of the meetup.
