Thank you for your question @Toro ! No one will have your complete file besides you, every time you upload a file it is split in 30 different pieces and each one goes to a different host node, meaning they will only have an unrecognizable shard of your data. Since this is a common question and with a good reason I鈥檒l make a LIVE video explaining how BTFS works step by step soon to clarify all doubts =)

that鈥檚 good project, user can use btfs.
good luck.

Hello everyone, we have updated the hackathon milestones and added some extra information of the project :slight_smile:

Our next milestones is very soon! We keep working hard for you!

Currently we are working hard to compile the first ever iOS compatible BTFS library, it鈥檚 becoming a true challenge (harder than expected) but if we don鈥檛 put our standards high enough we won鈥檛 reach the level we want to achieve :muscle:

Thank you for your continuous support on social media, telegram and Youtube!

Hello everyone, good news! We have achieved March 31st milestone a couple days before deadline :slight_smile:

Please take a look at new dCloud release!!

Release Notes:

Code name: Piter. AKA PiterSpain is a TRON & BitTorrent telegram Admin (demigod). He is the most respected and beloved Spaniard in the TRONverse. Usually a very kind & patient person but careful on breaking too much rules in his domains, he could ban the hell out of you with his hammer!

- SWAP service implemented as part of the Wallet manager (dev fee: 3.3 BTT per swap)
- Wallet GUI improved a bit
- Settings GUI improved a bit
- Added future features as hints in the GUI (BackUp Node Data, Data encryption, Auto renew storage contracts)
- Added the "Experimental" notice in the dBrowse tab to warn users on its usage, please remember the file list could be lost after a phone reset.

Hello community! As promised we are updating the app as soon as possible with each BTFS official release.

And now the Code name goes for @AbrahamS314 :wink:

As a side note I鈥檓 glad to inform the extended development team has been hired and is focusing right now on the React Native GUI. Requirements have been defined and shared with them to prioritize certain features development.

Hello community!! Glad to be here again :slight_smile: .

We鈥檝e been struggling to decide on how / if to apply for the S2 hackaton. Why?

  1. We still are pending to implement some key features to our mobile app which most likely won鈥檛 be noticed as Major improvements to our users/community/judges, even when there is a lot happening under the hood. This could bee seen as 鈥渘ot enough to be considered as vast improvements鈥 to be eligible.
  2. If we go for a new project even if its related to dCloud it will delay our current features implementation we are working on under the hood for the mobile versions of dCloud. We must stick to mature dCloud to the point it is usable for iOS and Android and it can be downloaded /updated using mainstream channels (Google Play & App Store) as stated in our main focus for dCloud development in: https://www.cctechmx.org

Having said that we鈥檝e been hearing our community feedback in regards of BTFS and dCloud, lots are asking for a simple to use web / straightforward way of uploading files even without installing anything. Even-tough our focus / expertise is not on the web development we understand how important is to have a web version of dCloud. We are calling it dCloud Web.
How are we planning to approach this?

We have 2 options on accomplishing a web version:

  1. The classic way: Centralized server / middleware website which runs a BTFS node and makes everything easier with the hidden cost of security and centralization. This is the most convenient of all but not fitting our values and/or expertise.
  2. dCloud Chrome plugin: Create a BTFS / dCloud plugin to manage your files and BTTC wallet using a web assembly (wasm) binary.

We are in the process of exploring the viability of option 2. If we determine this is possible in the short/mid term we will enter the hackathon, if not we will not due to the reasons explained above :slight_smile: .

We hope to have a definitive answer in a week period.

We appreciate your interest in our project and progress, even if we don鈥檛 join this hackathon we keep developing and working hard to make BTFS accessible for everyone :slight_smile:

Best Regards!

Interesting! I made a similar project during a chainlink hackthon except it was a desktop storage app.

Nice!! Your skills would be useful on dCloud. Interested on contributing for dCloud? I already ported dCloud to Mac but windows/ Linux is pending鈥 also the react native UI needs to be adjusted for desktop environment.

We would love to get some help with the desktop UI :slight_smile:
