What is FIL?
Filecoin is a peer-to-peer network built on the Web 3.0 infrastructure which facilitates open markets for users to store and retrieve files, and Filecoin token (FIL) acts as the network’s native currency.
Filecoin was founded in 2017 by Juan Beret, the creator of the Interplanetary File System (IPFS) and founder of Protocol Labs, an open-source research, development, and deployment laboratory.
How does the Filecoin network work?
The Filecoin network facilitates the storage of files where users can pay storage providers to have their files stored in a secure and verifiable manner on the network.
Storage providers on Filecoin are people or organizations that run dedicated systems with high storage built for the network These providers get rewarded in Filecoin tokens (FIL) for contributing storage to the network, and can sell their storage on an open market.
Users can select Filecoin miners whose storage capacities are most suited to their needs based on cost, redundancy and speed. Users are also able to verify that their files are stored correctly by checking Filecoin’s blockchain.
Unlike centralised storage systems, Filecoin’s decentralised network enables users and applications that use Filecoin to negotiate storage with any miner on the network.
Proof-of-Replication (PoRep) and Proof-of-Spacetime (PoSt)
Unlike typical proof-of-work blockchains, verifications on the Filecoin network are based on Proof-of-Replication and Proof-of-Spacetime. This means that Filecoin storage miners prove that they store a physically unique copy of the data. Proof-of-replication happens only once, when the data is first stored by the miner.
Proof-of-Spacetime, on the other hand, is an ongoing process which is run repeatedly to prove that they are continuing to allocate storage space to that same data over time.
The Filecoin token (FIL) currently ranks #21 amongst all cryptocurrencies and has had healthy gain prices since its ICO in 2017. FIL Reached an ATH price of $131.86 on October 15, 2020.
At the time of writing, FIL traded on Coinhako at $29.34 USD.
