With Chia not, outwardly at least, going anywhere much and people jumping off, has anyone been looking at the various storage crypto offerings with a view to providing space.

Cryptos that come to mind are (inc links);
From a light investigation I have done so far...

ARWeave uses SPoRA like Monero so newer CPU's are is better. Needs lots of v.fast NVME (8TB+ better) but meant to be moving to making HDD storage key. No eta on this release that I found.

FileCoin has a high point of entry with regard to required hardware (inc GPU) and does not seem to be profitable for non-corporate / non-whale end of storage providers. An example setup from over a year ago ( ) suggests an 64K build could generate 120k in 18 months (out of my range by far :) )

Storj seems to have a long (9 month ??) escrow period before payouts but a much lower bar to entry than FileCoin.

Storj seems like a possible for me but not keen on them holding payouts for so long when I am paying to provide the services they are selling and making profits on (sure this is the same for the others as well).

Any feedback on these, suggested builds, profitability ?.

I have been on Storj for about a year and have only filled about 3.3TB, which currently makes me $13/mo. I'll start moving my chia drives to Storj as they become full since Storj is more profitable per TB but takes AGES to fill drives.

I'm interested in FileCoin but the barrier to entry has always put me off.

Out of curiosity, what are the bandwidth requirements and averages like for Storj?
