As file sizes grow and the need for remote access ensues, cloud storage services are becoming the go-to solution for the modern user. Many of the biggest names in the industry claim to have the most secure systems and facilities, but unfortunately these are still prone to cyberattacks. So why not consider Box by Functionland?
It’s time we took full control of our data, but in a way that doesn’t sacrifice the conveniences of cloud storage. With Box, you don’t lose any of the essential functionality that drives us to subscribe to third-party services. in fact, you can backup, sync and share files and more over the internet with this device.
Hassle-free setup and no hidden fees
Unlike typical cloud storage services that require a complicated registration and activation process, Functionland keeps it simple. Box’s plug-and-play functionality means there’s virtually no need for complex procedures. Then there’s the added value of no additional fees. Once you’ve purchased a Box, you never have to pay for its apps or services.
When Box is installed and running, users can immediately get started and configure each option to suit their needs. Since internet connectivity is readily available almost everywhere, your data is always at your fingertips.
Functionland doesn’t want to shackle you with expensive monthly or yearly subscriptions. Instead, you get all the benefits typically provided by cloud storage services without any additional cost. So far, what this product offers looks like a great deal.
Security and Privacy
Most of the data we choose to send to the cloud is supposed to be protected, but we should know more. With controversial reports that even the most trusted vendors fall victim to cyberattacks that compromise sensitive information, exploring other alternatives is essential.
Functionland designed Box to run on open source peer-to-peer protocols to form an encrypted network it calls the Fula Network. You and other users have full control of everything with virtually no risk of breach.
Technically, the proprietary infrastructure allows the system to regularly create backups of your files, which are then spread across multiple units. In the unlikely event of a hardware failure, all downloaded items remain recoverable as long as the encryption details match.
If it’s already in the cloud, you can simply upload it again. The Fula network applies a form of blockchain technology to ensure that files can only be accessed by the person who originally sent them.
Since there is no middleman, communications or file transfers are never tracked by anyone. Also, Functionland will never sell anything to advertising agencies. This means that after your one-time purchase, the Box and its features remain ad-free.

- Up to 8 GB of RAM
- 2.4/5.0 GHz dual-band wireless LAN
- Bluetooth 5.0
- Expandable USB 3.0 ports
There are currently two models to choose from: Box Lite and Box XL. The former should suffice for users who need basic services and storage, while the latter is perfect for professionals and businesses who might eventually need more cloud computing resources to collaborate and boost productivity.
The system is modular and encourages independent hardware manufacturers to create future add-ons, making it an ever-evolving platform. Currently, Functionland only ships Box in a sleek silver aluminum case, but the company already has plans for additional color options down the line.
Earning Cryptocurrency with Box
Apart from providing a protected storage medium that can be accessed anywhere and on any device, Box also benefits those who deal in cryptocurrency. It passively earns $FULA tokens by mining and renting your extra storage space. For those who prefer a more hands-on approach, they can develop apps for the system in exchange for crypto compensation.
In short, Box is more than profitable in the long run. Functionland estimates that the break-even point of a Box Lite purchase occurs within approximately one year. Early adopters will find this appealing. For now, it only supports and accepts internal tokens. However, it can potentially expand to other forms of cryptocurrency in the future.
Our takeaway box
Judging by the numbers on its crowdfunding page, people are clearly eager for what the device brings to the table. Think of it as a cutting-edge evolution of network-attached storage (NAS). Open-source software, modular hardware, no subscription fees, and strong encryption present it as a feature-rich package. We can’t wait to see how far the company pushes the limits with the Box and its FULA network!
