Get started with UltronGlow
UltronGlow is a decentralized storage network designed to store, back-up and share your data, securely and privately. Additionally, you can offer your surplus storage capacity on your computer to other members of the network while earning rewards (UTG) for doing so.
There are 3 ways to participate in the UltronGlow ecosystem:
- Become a Validator on UltronGlow's Proof-of-Stake network
- Share your surplus storage on the UltronGlow network and earn rewards
- Rent storage from others on the UltronGlow network
Become a Validator on UltronGlow
If you are familiar with mining on other networks, such as Ethereum, then becoming an UltronGlow Validator will likely be a similar experience. However, if you have not previously set up a Validator on other Proof-of-Stake networks, beware that it can be a complicated process.

Sharing storage on UltronGlow
Sharing your computer's surplus storage on the UltronGlow network makes your computer a Storage Provider, and mining node on the network. By providing storage on the UltronGlow network, you not only help decentralize the world's data, you earn rewards that you can use for applications on the network - such as renting other's storage to take a defense-in-depth approach to backing-up your data.

Rent storage from other Storage Providers on UltronGlow
If you don't have surplus storage to share on the UltronGlow network, or setting-up a Validator is a bit too daunting, don't worry. You can still participate in UltronGlow by renting storage from other Storage Providers on the network.
