Recently, Colin evran, the person in charge of filecoin ecosystem, outlined the era background of filecoin network, the vision and implementation mode of filecion, the architecture and ecological development of filecoin ecosystem, business cases, a large number of activities that have been carried out, etc
Rapid growth of global data volume
In today’s world, the amount of data storage is growing continuously
According to statistics, in 2020, the total amount of data generated in the world will reach 58zb, which is expected to triple in the future, and reach or exceed 175 ZB in 202.
More importantly, only 7% of the global data has been stored. Then, with the continuous increase of data, the proportion will continue to decline, and is expected to drop to 5% in the next four years. Obviously, the current centralized cloud storage can not keep up with this speed.
So if we want to build a cloud storage network for the future, we need to explore new ways.
Filecoin reshapes data storage and pricing
Colin believes that optimizing the world’s storage and making the world’s huge potential storage capacity work means that we will change the way we control data and pricing from a few cloud storage service companies into a fully open global market, and anyone can become a data storage provider.
The mission of filecoin is to create a decentralized, powerful and efficient foundation for human information. We firmly believe that the most valuable resource of human is information, and we are committed to effectively pricing and decentralizing the way to store and protect valuable information resources.
Filecoin network can help solve some basic problems of today’s storage infrastructure. It allows users to completely master their own data and make their own decisions according to the data stored on the filecoin network. Filecoin transforms data storage into pricing, so as to form an effective market and let the network price rather than the company price, Verify the data storage to ensure that the miner really stores the user’s data.
Filecoin network can store users’ data in a unique way, such as different places, different times, different verification methods and retrieval speed.
Filecoin network itself can store content and store it in the right place to reach the place where users need it most. Of course, miners and users on filecoin can exchange valuable services. With the more active transactions and the expanding ecology, the business scenario of filecoin will become more and more powerful.
Filecoin allows storage service providers to focus more on the core activities of the back end of the business, do what they can and is the most valuable part of the work, and hand over the work of the front end of the business to the filecoin network.
Filecoin network can make all kinds of data storage providers compete more effectively under the support of the reliability of all kinds of data, and form a complete network.
Of course, the filecoin network is also open and inclusive, which enables large or small-scale miners and leading data centers to access to the filecoin network and gather together to provide a strong foundation for human information.
Filecoin network architecture and ecological development
Next, Colin This paper explains the development of filecoin network ecological architecture and ecology in March.
Filecoin network is a fast-growing ecosystem. There are thousands of talents working towards the common goal. This power is like a train that can’t stop. Every day, more and more talented developers, creators, partners and community members join this ecosystem.
It is the energy and rapid growth of the filecoin ecosystem that makes the filecoin network unique.
Of course, the way that filecoin network develops ecology is also different.
Filecoin ecosystem architecture
The top level of the filecoin ecosystem is the diversity of the filecoin ecosystem.
This includes the use case of filecoin, the application extended to web 3 and Web 2 through filecoin, that is, large external companies join the filecoin network, create new use scenarios, establish links with other Web3 ecologies such as Ethereum, and establish connections with web2 users entering web 3.
Among them, the cooperation between videocoin, chainlink, livepeer, fleet, opera and filecoin & IPFs are all relevant cases. In the middle of the filecoin ecosystem, it is a recyclable system.
Developers can participate in hackathons, educational resources support and other activities to improve their own ability and optimize the performance of the project; At the same time, filecoin will assist developers through accelerators, developer funding and guidance; Finally, it also provides corresponding financial support to help the project grow into a “company”.
Therefore, the logic of the middle part of the filecoin ecosystem is as follows: thousands of developers have developed and submitted hundreds of projects, of which the high-quality projects will get more support and gradually grow into companies.
Among them, hackathons, ETH Denver, NFT hack, gitcoin GR9 and filecoin acceleration camp are all related cases.
Filecoin is the cornerstone of the whole ecology, which is built by miners.
Colin said that he has always been very concerned about the progress of miners. Now, the effective computing power of filecoin network has exceeded 4eib, and more than 1800 active miners have joined the ecology and are booming.
The network traffic of filecoin is also increasing.
At the same time, the filecoin network also provides various tools and support for miners, and works together with miners to build the infrastructure of filecoin, such as the four major implementations of filecoin.
Colin thinks that the miners are very good. They not only laid a solid infrastructure for the filecoin network, but also invested in filecoin in different ways. They expanded the scope of geographical operation, provided financial support for ecological projects, and actively searched for effective data storage.
Among them, shikongyun and bpool pool alliance are outstanding representatives.
Finally, Colin said that filecoin is not only a network, but also a fast-growing ecology. Filecoin brings together thousands of top talents in the world to strive for a common goal.
Colin would like to express his heartfelt thanks to all the individuals and organizations who are committed to the ecological development of filecoin, including miners, ecological partners and developers.
Thank you all for your efforts to promote the common mission
Thanks to everyone’s help, filecoin has become a reality
Thanks and thanks for working with everyone
Of course, everything has just begun, we will eventually overcome all difficulties and complete the great mission of network construction.
