Achieving Breakthrough Scalability with InterPlanetary Consensus (IPC)

Meet InterPlanetary Consensus (IPC), a revolutionary blockchain technology from the minds behind Filecoin and IPFS, designed to bring planetary-scale performance to web3. IPC unlocks a new era of web3 scaling and flexibility for builders. With IPC, decentralized applications can reach planetary scale through recursively scalable subnets, sub-second transactions, robust compute workloads, and highly adaptable WebAssembly runtimes tailored to developer requirements.

IPC allows the creation of flexible, dynamic networks of customizable sidechains or “subnets”, which can achieve massive scaling by running parallel chains that interoperate with one another. It also empowers developers to bring compute onto the Filecoin network. Learn more in this blog post

Interested in some hands-on learning with IPC? If you’re heading to Istanbul for DevConnect Istanbul or LabWeek23, stop by the IPC event “Breakthrough Scaling with InterPlanetary Consensus” on November 16th to hear from the IPC builders - register now!

Blockworks Op-Ed: “We need to decentralize science”

In this recent Blockworks Op-Ed, Dr. Philipp Koellinger of DeSci Labs writes about several landmark studies and significant scientific discoveries that are based on false, plagiarized or manipulated data. He explains how the emergence of web3 technology provides a compelling technical solution to the problem of siloed data systems; “Content-addressed storage tools like IPFS and Filecoin enable scientists to redesign data storage and accessibility in ways Web2 can’t, ensuring data integrity within the FAIR principles (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable)”.

Station launches payments to nodes

The Station Network has begun payments to node operators! Station allows anyone to join the Web3 economy by putting idle hardware resources to work in exchange for tokens, giving builders a deployment target of a global worker network. Earning FIL through Station is as easy as downloading a desktop app - try it today!
