Corporations are not likely to want an extra layer of security concern in purchasing data storage. Buying and storing crypto-assets adds a layer of risk and complexity to fundamental business areas where it is not welcome. In the Distributed Datacenter, companies pay normally using credit cards and purchase orders. SCP, Corp contracts with the network, purchasing required SCP coins for contracts on the open market. This initially centralizes part of the product chain, but it is a part that can be transitioned easily when attitudes and directions shift toward blockchain.
As proof-of-work miners create the initial value in the SCP utility coin, value is enhanced through a natural supply scarcity. When contracts are formed, both parties are required to lockup an equal amount of coins for the contract value. This process collateralizes and holds the funds necessary to pay the Provider at the end. It also discourages attempts to cheat on the Provider side for loss of collateral. Providers typically make hundreds of contracts and will have significant coins locked as collateral at any given time. As the network grows, the collateral pool will also grow creating a natural supply or velocity sink (coins not in circulation).
The blockchain adds to long term scarcity with a linear decline in the mining reward, reaching a floor about five years after its starting or genesis block. This keeps the long term money supply in check with predictable inflation. While the total number of SCP coins is not finite, the practical ceiling is approximately 55m coins in 2023. Storage providers accommodate volatility as contractor storage costs float with the price as measured in dollars to remain competitive in the marketplace. This mechanism allows SCP, Corp to remain assured of datacenter cost as a component of backup pricing offered to customers.
