Filecoin Mining Community Call, July 2020

We are excited to announce the next Filecoin Mining Community Call. It will begin with a Filecoin ecosystem update and an overview of the progress that has been made since the last mining call. You’ll then learn everything you need to know to get ready for the Space Race, our Testnet Incentives Program. Finally we’ll conclude with a Q&A about mining on the Filecoin network.

Getting Ready for Filecoin’s Space Race

In the path to mainnet launch, our next big milestone is the launch of the Filecoin Testnet Incentives Program - nicknamed the Filecoin Space Race.

A Guide to Filecoin Storage Mining

In December, we shared an initial set of guidelines for storage mining on Testnet Phase 1. The project has since matured significantly, and we continue to build on the lessons learned through testing. We’ve now progressed to Testnet Phase 2, and are excited to relate the latest updates, opportunities, and guidelines for Filecoin storage miners.

Filecoin Comes to ProtoSchool

Today we’re excited to announce ProtoSchool’s first-ever Filecoin tutorial, Verifying Storage on Filecoin. It offers a beginner-friendly, code-free look at Filecoin’s proof system, exploring how the protocol implements decentralized storage with a combination of consensus mechanisms and cryptographic proofs that that allow clients to trust that miners are storing their data as agreed.

Filecoin Features: Verifiable Storage

The Filecoin marketplace runs effectively because of the confidence clients can have that storage miners on the network are properly storing their data. This confidence comes from Filecoin’s own unique proof system for ensuring storage on the Filecoin network works as contracted.
