Where Streams are stored

When we create stream, is it added to block or it will be stored in nodes local memory?

Creating streams, writing to streams and modifying stream permissions are all events which occur within transactions on the blockchain itself. When a node subscribes to a chain, or reads its content, this is not an event which takes place on the blockchain.

So when a node subscribes to a chain, how is this recorded? Is it by means of a key exchange?
Subscribing to a stream is not an on-chain event. It means that a node is interested in the content of a stream and is indexing it in many ways for retrieval.
