[opaysgmj] Data storage

Four classes of entities: those who wish to store data, to retrieve data, those willing to transport data, and to store data.  We imagine a micropayment system operating among these as an efficient free market of many decentralized suppliers and consumers.  Probably brokers to match up the entities.  This already seems difficult.

Those who store data might offer different latencies at different prices.

Next layer on top of that Tor-like anonymity and Freenet-like censorship resistance and Bitcoin-like decentralized currency.  Is it all possible?  There might be a fairly expansive theorem linking widely disparate fields of information theory to economics.
