What is Filecoin?
Filecoin is a decentralized storage system aiming to store the most important information for people. $205 million was raised in an initial coin offering (ICO) in 2017. As an open protocol, Filecoin is backed by a blockchain that records commitments made by the network’s participants, with transactions made using FIL, the blockchain’s native currency. The blockchain is based on both proof-of-replication and proof-of-spacetime. Up to now, Filecoin has been one of the most ambitious projects in the field of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
Why Filecoin is Promising?
Based on the real-time data on FILFOX, the network storage power has reached 18.11EiB and 3,989 active miners are included in the network. And all the data keep constantly rising. Up to now, Filecoin project is also making solid progress in accordance with the plan in its white paper.
The EiB-level data capacity the Filecoin network achieves has laid a solid foundation for the smooth development of the network. On this solid foundation, Filecoin has the confidence and strength to be comparable to traditional cloud service providers such as Amazon Cloud.
The launch of FIL+, through the empowerment of ten times the effective computing power, has attracted the data storage of enterprise-level customers for the Filecoin network. In other words, as a business, you can store data on the Filecoin network for free. The Filecoin network provides storage services for hundreds of customers, including NFT, DeFil, finance, education, architectural design, cultural film and television, and even government departments and many other industries.
Where Will Filecoin Go in the Future?
According to Seagate data, by 2023, China’s data volume will reach 40ZiB, of which more than 80% are unstructured data (documents, pictures, videos), and by 2025 data storage will be expected to grow to 175ZiB. If all the data are stacked up, the piles of data can go up to the moon (1ZiB = 1 trillion GiB). This massive amount of data will undoubtedly bring huge challenges to the storage field. It is conceivable that with the popularization of 5G, the field of data storage to which Filecoin belongs will be a blue ocean.
Filet is a Filecoin mining power tokenization protocol that deployed on BSC and HECO network. It tokenizes Filecoin mining power and introduces it into the DeFi ecosystem to provide FIL holders with high-growth FIL staking services. The mining power and assets are completely open and transparent.
Filet is backed by one of the largest storage providers in North America. The project is open source and audited by Certik. It is safe and secure to stake in Filet.
