Greenfield may support permanent storage in the future.
Can I update the files after it is uploaded?
Update is not yet supported, but it can be accomplished through deletion and upload.
Can I enjoy lower price for the data I previously stored if the storage price goes down?
Sure, but it requires any transaction that modifies the payment flow, such as uploading or deleting files, to trigger it.
Will I also have to pay more for the data I have previously stored if the storage price goes up?
In theory, yes. However, Greenfield will strictly limit the frequency and magnitude of price adjustments by storage providers to minimize the impact on users.
If the storage provider loses my data or refuses to provide service, what can I do?
This situation is usually unlikely to happen because Greenfield uses redundant error-correction coding to keep your data safe across multiple storage providers.
If such a scenario occurs, you can initiate a data availability challenge, and validators will verify the integrity, availability, and service quality of your data while penalizing the corresponding storage provider. You can continue to receive rewards until the storage provider fully recovers your data or provides the service.
How can I make my valuable data circulate?
You can mirror your data and access permissions to the BNB Smart Chain network, and trade your data through various DApps and data trading platforms.
How long can the data uploaded to the testnet be saved?
