Filecoin is a decentralized network that enables users to leverage verifiable marketplaces and store, request, and transfer data. It’s an open-source solution that recently launched its own token, and leverages two unique proof systems called Proof of Spacetime (PoSt) and Proof of Replication (PoRep) to create an efficient and reliable solution.
Filecoin competes with similar solutions in the industry such as Storj, IPFS, Sia, and Swarm.
