Increasing numbers of connectivity-dependent services are entering the market, many of which require users to entrust their data to the provider of the service. In exchange for having more convenient access to data, users must upload and entrust their data to these services. Companies are constantly launching and offering new products and services, to which users are submitting important data. A significant future challenge for users and service providers alike is retaining user trust, as services close and data is no longer available. This is increasingly important as mobile device connectivity improves to the point where cloud-based services are the norm, and local storage of data is less popular. We present a model demonstrating how viable, user-friendly services (not limited to data storage services) can be based upon a simple, decentralised storage-based back-end.
