What is Filecoin?

Current price
$ 00.00%

Filecoin is a decentralised storage system that acts as an incentive layer for the Interplanetary File System (IPFS), a peer-to-peer storage network. It was designed to incentivize the reliable storage of files on the network. It is an open protocol and backed by a blockchain that records commitments with FIL, the blockchain’s native currency. The blockchain is based on both proof-of-replication and proof-of-spacetime.

Mission

Filecoin aims to “store humanity’s most important information.” Unlike cloud storage companies, which are prone to the problems of centralization, Filecoin leverages its decentralized nature to protect the integrity of a data’s location, making it easily retrievable and hard to censor.

Team

Filecoin was founded by Juan Benet. He is the founder and CEO of Protocol Labs, which he started in May 2014. Protocol Labs is an open-source research, development, and deployment laboratory. Their projects include Filecoin, IPFS, and libp2p.

FAQs

How Is the Filecoin Network Secured?

Filecoin is secured through proof-of-replication and proof-of-spacetime. Proof-of-Spacetime verifies the file is being stored, unaltered, over the agreed-upon duration. Proof-of-Replication verifies the agreed-upon number of copies of a file are being stored.
