Filecoin explained: Decentralizing cloud storage for Web 3.0 - Forkast

Filecoin explained: Decentralizing cloud storage for Web 3.0 - Forkast | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it

"Filecoin is the economic incentive layer to the peer-to-peer decentralized network for sharing and storing of data, Interplanetary File System (IPFS).  In October 2020, the network launched its mainnet. Less than a month later, Filecoin’s total network storage power has surpassed 1 EiB (exbibyte), or over 1.1 million TB (terabyte).

 

As a peer-to-peer network, Filecoin connects two main players: the users and storage providers. Unlike a traditional blockchain protocol, miners in the Filecoin network aren’t rewarded FIL for verifying a block’s proof of work. Instead, miners in the Filecoin network have computers with internet connections and available storage for clients to hire. Storage providers are the miners, and are rewarded with FIL for contributing storage to the network.  The users, on the other hand, are the customers, or individuals in the market that are looking to hire storage from the storage providers that have implemented the Filecoin protocol. 

 

An agreement between a user and a storage provider is called deals. In the Filecoin network, there are two notable types of deals, storage and retrieval deals. As the names suggest, a storage deal occurs when a miner has received data from the client to store, while retrieval deals occur when miners withdraw data from the network."
