Introduction
1.1 Project overview
Market.space is a decentralized self-regulatory system for data storage, transmission
and direct content distribution. It performs several non-standard functions which
make it stand out from the
competition
:
— As a
host aggregator,
Market.space allows professional hosting providers and
data centers to thrive on leasing the unused storage capacities
— Our system works as a
marketplace,
without imposed plans or transaction fees,
which means affordable pricing
— With Market.space, authentic
content can be distributed
seamlessly and
securely
bypassing intermediaries
and their fees. This function is intrinsically
embedded in the system architecture while the competitors would need
centralization or additional apps for it
The responsible data storage is carried out in accordance with the algorithms set in
the smart contract. All the participants are

Data storage market
2.1 Main figures and expectations
Today, the number of Internet users reaches up to 3.8B people, which makes almost
50% of the world population. Developing countries account for the majority of users
(about 2.
5B). The number of users in developed countries equals to about 1B.
As of 2016, the volume of the cloud storage market (PCS — Public Cloud Storage) made
$26.4B and is expected to hit $99B mark by 2022 (figure 1). On average, the market is
growing by 24.8% [1] per year.

Figure 1. The PCS market growth, 2015-2022
Currently 39% of the Internet users, or 1.5B people, regularly use cloud storage services.
By 2020 this number is forecast to surge to $2.3B [2] whereas market penetration will
have grown from 47% to 59% (f...

2.2 Major players
Today the list of the largest PCS players includes OneDrive (Microsoft), Google, Dropbox
and Apple with more than 900M subscribers. Apple is not reflected in most of the
reports though since storage service is embedded in its ecosystem. Amazon and
Dropbox currently constitute the forefront of B2B segment.
The smaller players operating in the market include pCloud, BlackBlaze, FlipDrive,
JustCloud and others.
There are also newcomers — hosting providers working on cloud storage services jointly
with software companies like Microsoft as well as companies devising decentralized
blockchain-based storages. This new market segment is now known as cooperative
storage cloud.
For further analysis it should be noted that depending on the user type storages
may aim at SMB or large enterprises. They are also classified as public, private or
hybrid [3] by deployment mode (figure 3). In case of hybrid storages, one part of data is
stored on the hosting provider’s servers in a ...

2.3 Growth drivers
The market is now experiencing a burgeoning demand of both individuals and
businesses. The latter
(SMB in particular)
vastly use cloud storage services to ensure
uninterrupted business processes, improve customer support and leave behind the
traditional IT infrastructure calling for substantial expenses and professional expertise.
Large businesses
mostly opt for private and hybrid storages which add up to corporate
agility and flexibility while saving on infrastructure maintenance. The expected demand
increase in most industries (from manufacturing to mass media) is attributed to
relatively low cost of data storage and processing.
Only 6% of businesses survive for more than two years after the loss of valuable data.
More than 65% [4] of businesses globally use cloud storage services to back up the data.
Reinforcing data security
and anonymity will
expand the PCS target audience
due to
manufacturing, finance and insurance, healthcare...

Absence of encyption by design and a probability of third parties accessing the data still
put off a lot of potential users (especially those from the enterprise segment). It comes
as no surprise given the abundant reports of data leakage, theft and compromised
accounts.
Moreover, centralized data storage leaves room for data scanning which is now
commonplace due to deep machine learning algorithms. The latter allow extracting
data even from audio or video. This means that your valuable data can be stolen for
commercial use or transferred to third parties.
The access is normally delayed for cold storage (long-term data retention implying one-
time recording and rare reading) compared to other modes. With the vast majority of
the hosting providers, data
transfer from cold storage
to a regular mode with instant
access requires a fee.
2.5.2 Blockchain-based storage services
Decentralized data storage on consumer devices solves the security problem. However,
they are not a...

Market.space System
3.1 What Market.space has to offer
·
Reliability
— Distributed ledger ensures high
fault tolerance
of the system, for example in
case of DDoS attacks.
— Data storage is delegated to
professionals
(experienced hosting providers).
— The
insurance deposit
guarantees contractors’ liability while objective
rate
·
system
based on metrics incentivizes the contractors to fulfill their commitments.
Anonymity
of the participants is reached through absence of centralized registration.
Market.space is devised as a zero knowledge system: all the upload and download links
are temporary; each link stands for an encrypted part of the file. In other words, only
·
uploader and downloader can access the files.
The offer and request system
and unlimited number of participants allow the
platform to function as a
marketplace
and thus form a more
af...

3.2 Why blockchain?
The usage of blockchain-based system for data storage and transmission gives some
essential advantages:
Decentralization increases reliability and fault tolerance
If the system had a single center, it would be highly susceptible to destabilization.
Anonymity
Proof of identity is not required. The addresses (wallets) are used as identifiers.
Equality
All the participants have equal rights; each of them acts within their functionality,
adhering to the stipulated rules
The date and time of the file upload
As soon as a file is uploaded to the system, a timestamp is generated and added
to hash. Invariability and integrity of blockchain allows the user to refer to this
timestamp if needed (for instance, it can be used as proof of ownership).
Proof of copyright
A unique address serving as a private key (a kind of signature) is used for any
file when it’s uploaded to the system. Thus the key owner can easily prove their
copyright.
