Wuala: Buy or trade p2p storage

Wuala uses erasure codes and crypto over a p2p network (backed by managed servers) to provide “social” storage. The crypto builds on work by Kevin Fu and others. One nice idea is that you can trade local storage for remote storage. I wonder how good the latency is when reconstructing data fragmented across distributed peers.
