Distributed Hash Tables (DHTs) provide a means to build a completely decentralized, large-scale persistent storage service from the individual storage capacities contributed by each node of the peer-to-peer overlay. However, persistence can only be achieved if nodes are highly available, that is, if they stay most of the time connected to the overlay. In this paper we present an incentives-based mechanism to increase the availability of DHT nodes, thereby providing better data persistence fordoi:10.1109/ipdps.2006.1639706 dblp:conf/ipps/PicconiS06 fatcat:kayai5f6yrf2zkwypwztdq7pce
