A brief history of Unigrid
In 2018, some members from the Interstellar Holdings community, together with Evan Green, stepped in to help and save the abandoned and failed cryptocurrency project. At that time, the idea was to create a decentralized charity platform named Huzu. A new blockchain was created based on the PiVX project – allowing token holders of Interstelllar Holdings to transfer their balance onto this new blockchain.
In late 2018, Adam Waldenberg did some work on the project and helped to fix some minor issues in the code base. While working on the solutions needed to store data on the Huzu blockchain, the idea for Unigrid and a decentralized Internet was born in late 2019. After some further development, the blockchain was forked away from the Huzu chain. This allowed us to take Unigrid in a new direction, with Huzu continuing on its own.
Join The Next Internet
Unigrid is the next natural step in the evolution of the Internet. A load balanced network that is completely anonymous and resistant to eavesdropping. The segmented design enables cloud services and applications that guarantee 100% uptime with full data redundancy.
When you save something on the future Unigrid network it will be permanent. The network stores your data and spreads it out in encrypted shards, saving pieces in countless locations. Only you, as the owner of the data, can remove it from the network.
Anybody can contribute resources to the network by hosting a gridnode (a service node), supplying bandwidth, compute cycles and storage space These nodes are rewarded by the Unigrid network for their work.
