Don't Panic! Here's a short guide to what SDrive has to offer and what it all means.

    SDK & Install

    These features are made for developers and provides easy access to SDrive functionality in your own apps. They both require an API key and staked credits to use.

    The API

    The API lets developers integrate uploads and downloads natively in their apps on a base level. There's a repository ofcode examples on githubthat you can use for reference.

    The SDK

    The SDK is a simple interface for using the API and should be your goto if you don't need low level access. The SDK is available onnpm.

    CDN and upload

    All file uploads are stored on permissionless, decentralized storage networks.

    The benefits of this include:

    • Enhanced Security: Decentralized storage reduces the risk of data breaches and unauthorized access.
    • Improved Data Integrity: With decentralized networks, data is distributed, ensuring it remains unaltered and accessible even if parts of the network fail.
    • Reduced Downtime: The decentralized nature ensures higher uptime and reliability, as there is no single point of failure.
    • Cost Efficiency: Compared to traditional cloud storage, decentralized networks can offer more competitive pricing due to lower operational costs.
    • Privacy and Control: Users retain control over their data, enhancing privacy and preventing misuse by centralized entities.
    • Global Accessibility: Decentralized storage enables faster access to data from any location, improving performance for users worldwide.

    In addition, the files are also available on SDrive's CDN, providing deterministic naming and the ability to replace content or even delete the resource. This feature ensures that your data management on the network is both flexible and efficient, offering seamless updates and removals when necessary. The inclusion of CDN services complements the decentralized storage benefits by ensuring fast, reliable access to files with enhanced control over your content.



    The SDRIVE ecosystem promotes a decentralized digital storage economy, underpinned by community involvement for collective sustainability. Key elements include:

    • DISK NFT Ownership: Holders earn Storage Credits, sellable to those needing storage.
    • Bandwidth Staking: Users stake bandwidth, earning or paying SCOIN based on usage, ensuring equitable network support.

    Key Components:

    • SCOIN: Serves as the trading currency for storage credits, central to the SDRIVE economy.
    • Storage Credits: Tradable tokens for file uploads, dictating the ecosystem's storage supply.
    • DISK NFTs: Emit Storage Credits weekly and depreciate annually by 20%, symbolizing digital "wear and tear."

    Economy Dynamics:

    • DISKs dictate storage capacity through credit emission, balanced by their maintenance and depreciation.
    • SCOIN facilitates DISK transactions and maintenance, driving the economy's liquidity and health.
    • Bandwidth allocation relies on SCOIN staking, promoting network fairness and efficiency.

    Sustainability Measures:

    • Maintenance and recycling of DISKs ensure value retention and ecosystem longevity.
    • Efficient bandwidth staking incentivizes responsible network use and contributes to its capacity.
