Crypto Daily Spotlight



Filecoin reports a nearly 7X growth of data suppliers year to date.


Brief Introduction: Filecoin is a decentralised filesharing protocol developed by Protocol Labs that enables users to buy and sell computer storage for decentralised storage of data and files. For example, blockchain data is stored on networks like Filecoin rather than centralised providers such as Amazon Web Services.


Why it matters:

  • Filecoin has a market capitalisation of $1.65 billion and roughly 20,000 individual users who are currently using Filecoin

  • The reported growth precedes the launch of the Filecoin Virtual Machine scheduled for early 2023, which is a virtual computer that would be used to develop decentralised applications on the Filecoin network

  • The testnet is slated for November 28 of this year, which will be a test blockchain mimicking real-world usage
