Using Duplicacy to backup securely to Storj cloud storage for free
Duplicacy is state-of-the-art backup tool that has extensive cloud support. It also supports local disks and remote sftp servers.
Duplicacy is available as a web-based GUI or as a command line tool. It’s extremely quick and uses Lock Free Deduplication.
Storj is an S3 compatible cloud storage provider that offers 150 GB of free storage. No credit card is required.

This doesn’t appear to be FOSS.
There is nothing wrong with that of course. But I don’t think it is the sort of content that FM’s readers expect/want to see on Fedora Magazine.
Does this count:
GUI/CLI licenses are not required under the following situations:
- Running the CLI version to back up personal files/documents on a home computer
- Running the CLI version to restore, check, copy, or prune existing backups on any computer
- Running the CLI version to back up any files on a computer where a GUI license is already installed
- Running the web-based GUI (Duplicacy Web Edition) to restore, check, copy, or prune existing backups
The CLI version is free for personal use. In addition, if the operation is to restore or manage existing backups (such as check, copy, and prune), the CLI version can be run by anyone on any computer without a CLI license.
These are the licenses we like to see: Allowed Licenses :: Fedora Docs
Is Duplicacy under one of those?
