Storj monthly overview

My article Storj Node – Rent Out Your Disk Space and Earn Money describes in detail how Storj can provide decentralized cloud storage at low cost with high security. Out of interest and fascination with the technology, and the hope that it will add something to my passive income, I also run a Storj node and thus provide my available disk space. In return, I receive money from the storage provider in the form of STORJ tokens.

Since I would have liked to have such a page myself before starting the node to see a possible development of income and disk space, I decided to publish the progress of my node. Always at the beginning of a month I summarize this progress. So you will find on this page the following key figures.

  • Earnings
  • Earnings paid out by Storj
  • Withheld earnings
  • Used disk space

Since Storj wants to prevent a node operator from suddenly taking its hard drive off the network, the algorithm always withholds a portion of the revenue. After a certain runtime of the node, the decentralized cloud storage pays out the withheld amount.

The earnings are on a small scale still. Nevertheless, I find it enormously exciting how it develops over the months. The node has only been running since the end of April 2021 and unfortunately I had not taken any screenshots for May, June, July and August. For this reason, the listing starts with September 2021.

  • Withheld earnings ($): All the income that Storj has withheld so far. The algorithm calculates how much of the income is withheld at the beginning of the following month. For this reason, the current month is not taken into account here either.
