Here is the scenario. I know I’m like a bug. This one it’s more a question. User A put file X on the network privately. So he pay for it. User B put the same file on the network privately. I assume that it will pay for it too. But the file is de-duplicated.
Based on my understanding the location of the chunks is based on some kind of hash. So the location is the same.
Next scenario is the same than above except User B look first for the availability of the file (with the address of all chunks) after all the encryption and hashing stages are done and look for it before storing it on the network. He found them (the chunks). Instead of paying to store file X he pay only to update his Data Map.
That can be done too if user B delete file X, store the same file again and he don’t pay again.
Correct me if I’m wrong please!
It’s a case that can be happen?
