Reply to post: Dropbox

GitLab tries to address crypto-mining abuse by requiring card details for free stuff



While you still have to pay I'm surprised that Dropbox still has their unlimited storage with Chia mining about now can't be long before someone signs up for the 3 user unlimited plan and throws in 1Pb of plots. No not a free tier but I'm pretty sure the $65 per month isn't going to cover that storage cost.

Then again I'm sure it's already losing $$ given the number of people I know who use it as a backup service for 100's of Tb.

Or did I just break ]some unspoken rule of making someone aware of this (I'm sure not how many "Unlimited" cloud storage products have come and gone over the years).
