One of the interesting aspects of the blockchain is that it can be used as a decentralized storage system to upload data and digital content. In doing so, the file will remain forever in the blockchain, accessible to anyone and at any time, also becoming censorship resistance.
Obviously you can upload data to any blockchain, but to do so requires a considerable cost, unless that type of blockchain is not really designed to handle different and large files.
The blockchain of Bitcoin SV to upload files
And this is where the Bitcoin SV blockchain (BSV) comes into play, since at full capacity it is capable of handling 2 Tb blocks and then store anything, such as decentralized domains.
To facilitate the upload of a file to this blockchain was born the service Bico.Media, which allows you to upload any type of format without any limits. The system is currently in beta phase.
Tutorial step by step to upload a file to the Bitcoin SV blockchain
The interface is very simple and just connect to the service web page, click on the „Click to select files“ button and choose the file we want to upload from our pc.
At this point we will have to use either one of our wallets or a new one will be created where we will have to deposit our BSVs. The fee amounts to 0.5 satoshi per byte, so for a 330 KB file we will have to spend about 0.05 BSV.
At this point just press the button „Add to the blockchain as nickels get ready“ and wait until the file is first loaded and then propagated on the blockchain.
