Put your unused storage to work by becoming a Filecoin miner. Use the Filecoin mining software to get paid for fulfilling storage requests and hosting files on the global Filecoin market.
Filecoin will be traded on a number of exchanges and supported by multiple cryptocurrency wallets, allowing you to easily exchange Filecoin for other currencies like US Dollars, Bitcoin and Ether.
Clients can tune their storage strategy to suit their needs in redundancy, speed of retrieval and cost. Filecoin storage and retrieval markets make miners compete to give you flexible options at the best prices.
We are thrilled to share with you the new Filecoin Whitepaper. This new Whitepaper introduces two new Research breakthroughs in the Distributed Storage Networks (DSN) landscape: Proof-of-Replication (PoR) and Proof-of-Spacetime (PoSt).
It also makes storage resemble a commodity or utility by decoupling hard-drive space from additional services. On this robust global market the price of storage will be driven by supply and demand, not corporate pricing departments, and miners will compete on factors like reputation for reliability as well as price.
Join the Early Miner Program
Join the Filecoin Storage Market to rent your hard drives, single disks, racks, whole data centers, every Terabyte you are not using.
All you need to do is to connect to the Filecoin network and the protocol will handle the file transfers and transactions for you. The more space you put on the market, the more Filecoin you get.
Are you in the middle of a dense city? Do you have access to very fast Internet pipes? Have a rack in a carrier hotel? Perfect!
In Filecoin’s Retrieval Market, miners get rewarded for delivering content quickly. This makes the retrieval market good for miners who have low-latency, high-bandwidth connections to lots of users (but not necessarily the most disk space).
