After successfully closing a fundraising round through a regulated Initial Coin Offering, Internxt is starting to work on helping shape a new internet with the creation of distributed internet services that are attractive for the mass-market.

Internxt is starting with decentralized cloud file storage as their first distributed internet solution, “X Files”. It will allow anyone (both individuals and businesses) to host files in a significantly more secure, private, reliable and independent cloud.

A cloud that brings together the highest levels of security with all the benefits of the cloud.

“We believe people have the right for higher levels of privacy and security on a cloud that finally makes sense” – adds Fran Villalba Segarra, Internxt’s Founder and CEO. Fran Villalba Segarra (born 1997) is a young entrepreneur, nominated for Forbes 30 Under 30 2018.

X Files will mainly be based on IPFS. They are taking different decentralized technologies and improving them to make sure they are nicely shaped to fit Internxt’s X Files needs. However, Internxt is mainly focusing on providing a seamless user experience, unlike companies such as Storj, Substratum or Sia are.

Internxt’s X Files Alpha version will go live on January 2018, and the stable version in May 2018. Hosts hosting files on Internxt’s X Files P2P network will get paid with Internxts coin “INXT”, currently traded on exchanges such as CoinExchange.

  1. FYI Storj does aim to provide a seamless user experience implying that we don´t seems a bit ridiculous. We are constantly improving our service based on user feedback. We have a working product where farmers can set up their nodes in minutes, and renters can upload their files via FileZilla already, with more integrations in the works. Our tech support is attending troubleshooting questions 24/7. Please show me what actually sets Internxt appart, other than good intentions which all the competitors you mentioned certainly also have.
