I guess what I am trying to say is that the core team continues to work on the services that lay the foundations of this coin. That is where the effort and energy should currently be focused. Further, there is a published roadmap that has been laid out and it would be frivolous to abandon or change direction at this point without a solid case. There is still a lot to do before the current work efforts can be called complete.
I will ask, did you take the opportunity to review the somewhat recent announcement on Reddit of the last 2 months and beyond? It is a good read and should give you an idea of the direction being sought.
I agree that there are exciting days ahead with blockchain technology, side chains etc, file-sharing has been well established even before Web 2.0 (gosh i am old enough to remember fetching files using Gopher. or downloading from a BBS. (Pls some say they remember doing this also not just hearing about it).
BTW, I like the idea of storj also and there is nothing wrong with proposing ideas like this and putting it out there, in fact it helps to expose different ideas and opinions and establish some healthy debate. Certainly the developers will chime in if they think there is merit, they are quite active in monitoring the chatter on the forum.
