Newfang, powered by blockchain, helps apps offer their users privacy and ownership of their data, make use of edge computing to serve media and stream video faster, reduce costs up to 50%, and remain resilient to attacks/data breaches/censorship without a central point of failure, through a decentralized network of storage nodes.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Transparent and Simple Billing
I am currently using it for free under Alpha release, but the pricing is straight forward with billing for storage and download, no unnecessary list of unbundled API' are billed.
All the usage is logged on the blockchain that can be audited against the bill.
Pro Privacy Focused and Transparent
All the files are encrypted and access is logged on the blockchain that I can verify. Only those with access can view the files.
Pro Good for video streaming & hosting
Due to the distributed nature of servers, video streaming is performant and better than current providers. Quite cheaper too. Files are downloaded from an edge network.
Pro Very easy to integrate
SDK just has a couple of endpoints with good documentation
Con New to the market
The service is relatively new, but migration shouldn't be a problem
