no trading = no wuala

I have been using wuala for almost two years now and have been quite happy with it. End of September the wuala team announced to discontinue one of their coolest features: trading storage. This means that wuala is now yet another online cloud storage service, with client-side encryption as their only competitive advantage.
Therefore I will quit using wuala as I do not want to spend money on online storage space. At the time of writing this blog post, I have around one year to make use of the ~180GB wuala storage I earned with trading storage, before I have to pay for this storage space.

In conclusion: major bummer that wuala is moving away from a P2P storage system towards a client-server paradigm – Have a look at other online storage services 🙁
