Too Long; Didn't Read

The black market for data is a bustling underground economy where stolen information is bought, sold, and traded like any other commodity. To a hacker, your social security number, credit card information, and even your medical records are all potential gold mines. Hackers can use your stolen data to open new lines of credit in your name, buy expensive items and then leave you with the bill, or drain your bank account dry. Decentralized storage solutions, like Filecoin, offer a way to store our data in a way that is much more secure.
