Who pays to upload or download files using the SWRM CDN?

Publishers are responsible for paying for all content streamed or dowloaded using the SWRM CDN.

Every Hive node pays to download and host customer’s files. End users then pay Hive nodes in SWRM Coins for the usage of bandwidth associated with hosting their downloads. Customers pay to settle their end-user’s balance at the end of each 30-day billing cycle. Hive nodes in the nearest vicinity to end-users and with the highest bandwidth and storage availability will likely deliver the most data and earn the most SWRM Coins.
