Send Files Securely Using Black Hole


Recommended Posts

Black Hole, a new file sharing system that uses the Blockstack network for logins, file transfer/delivery and sharing:


Free version is limited to 512MB max size uploads, but unlimited storage due to blockchain magicks.

So how is it that storing data on the blockchain is so inefficient that even a few dozen kilobytes for a GIF of a stick figure with a dick is way too big to actually put on the blockchain so all your Logan Paul NFTs are actually just URLs, but this can use it for "unlimited free storage"?


I need someone bigger brained than me to explain why this isn't the same as wetransfer but with a blockchain based frontend and a different storage limit structure.
