The original Subspace Whitepaper
A purely peer-to-peer storage network would allow users to have full control over data they generate on the Internet without going through a remote server. Users could host their data directly on devices they already own, while replicating it across other devices on the network in a secure and persistent manner.
Hosts pledge free space to the network in return for regular distributions of subspace credits from client apps and users. These agreements are encoded as smart contracts on a distributed ledger secured by Proof of Space consensus. Subspace aims to be a simpler construction of a decentralized storage network focused on developer usability that seeks mass adoption by end users.
