Filecoin 2018 Q1 & Q2 Update

Let’s not bury the lede. The most exciting thing going on right now in the Filecoin Project is building the first protocol implementation: go-filecoin. We have been hard at work on this for many months, and are thrilled to have reached a point where the core blockchain system and file storing works … Along with this update we are publishing 3 demos of go-filecoin in action.

We get to see basic blockchain operations … the resulting blockchain data … and the decentralized and verifiable Storage Market in action, with bids, asks, and deals storing files. …

Sale Delayed — New Date: Thursday Aug 10

Rockets delay their launches all the time. Ultimately, it’s much better to get these things absolutely right. ...

We love thoroughly explaining the reasons we think a decentralized storage network is worth building (and have!). At the same time, we’re also more than willing to openly discuss the challenges of implementing such a system. In fact, since the original Filecoin Paper was posted in 2014, the team has been working on building various logistical and cryptographic components necessary for decentralizing the internet’s storage. In this post, we introduce two of those components: Proof of Replication and Power Fault Tolerance. ...
