Cloud storage offers convenient outsourcing services to users, and it serves as a basic platform to drive Internet-of-Things (IoT) where massive devices are connected to the cloud storage and interact with each other. However, cloud storage is more than a data warehouse. In the literature, data market was proposed as a novel model to empower IoT, where data are circulated as merchandise in the digital marketplace with financial activities. When storing IoT data in cloud storage, security and efficiency rules should be applied. Meanwhile, data dynamics is counted as a critical factor to the feasibility of datamarket as data are supposed to be manipulated through circulation and exploitation for IoT. Another issue is the single-point-of-failure (SPoF) of cloud server in which the initiative of jointcloud was suggested. Since providing data security, efficiency, and dynamics simultaneously is challenging, in this article, we propose a versatile auditing scheme (EVA) as a solution to problems. Our proposal ensures that data are securely, efficiently, and dynamically stored in the jointcloud meanwhile supported by data trades via blockchain. We give a comprehensive security analysis based on our security definitions and experiments to support our claims. The evidence has shown that our EVA is efficient for processing large files when proper parameters are chosen.
