One of the biggest issues with blockchains is that it is extremely expensive to store large amounts of data. Currently, it costs approximately $13,000 to store 1MB on Ethereum. This is why it is infeasible to build large-scale DApps. Decentralized storage networks like Sia, Storj and Filecoin provide a solution to this problem. But they are extremely difficult to use and do not provide critical functionalities that are available in traditional file storage system. ZeroBit aims to solve this problem by providing a service on top of the various decentralized file storage networks such that developers can easily store and access files without the pain of building their own custom integrations....

Recommendations

Jeremy J. Phillips Cornell Tech Crit Advisor, Product Studio Mentor at Cornell Tech

Rongxin and I worked together last semester as he answered Capital One’s thought-provoking question to the students of “How might we leverage the blockchain to create financial identities that are country independent” as part of Cornell’s Product Studio Challenge. Rongxin assembled a team of diverse Computer Science Masters students (mostly) and himself (Cornell Tech MBA) and advisors – including myself – to turn their answer into a prototype aspiring to become an independent business. I’ve been impressed with Rongxin’s and his team’s grit, educations, previous work experience (Zillow, Credit Suisse, Trax, Weizman, Calexus) and knowledge of blockchain tech and applications. I think ZeroBit would benefit from and contribute to Techstars Barclay’s. I’m pleased to make this recommendation.
