CryptoCompare states that 'Sia, is a platform for decentralized storage where users can contribute their computer disk space to create a network. Siacoins are used to rent out storage space from hosts. Smart storage contracts, which run on the Sia Blockchain, ensure that the host is paid only when the file has been kept for a certain amount of time. Sia's distributed network provides benefits in terms of latency, reliability, security and throughput. Anyone with storage is able to get paid and this reduces the cost of cloud storage. The Sia crypto is now live and the platform, which is still in beta stage, supports uploads of 500mb in size or less.
