On May 13, the official twitter of filecoin issued a tweet to celebrate the effective computing power of the whole network of filecoin breaking through 5eib.
What is the concept of 5eib?
5eib, equivalent to 5120pib, equivalent to 5242880tib, equivalent to 5368709120gib
5eib, equivalent to 95 copies of the entire Internet Archive, 22500 Wikipedia capacity, 340 million years of continuous video calls, and 1.5 billion HD movies. In general, the miners around the world have built filecoin into a A great and majestic Great Wall.
Filecoin network wide data Block height of the whole network: 752689
Effective computing power of the whole network: 5.218 EIB
Number of active miners in the whole network: 2245
24-hour mining output: 363976
Reward per block: 25.8162
Fil circulation: 122936582
Fil destruction: 24899147
Filecoin — The missing incentive layer of IPFs As a powerful and active distributed cloud storage network, filecoin adds incentive permanent storage for IPFs. IPFs users can directly and reliably store their data on filecoin, thus opening the door to many applications and landing scenarios for the network.
An optimized network: the combination of filecoin and point-to-point distributed network protocol IPFs forms a more efficient and secure network without enterprise control.
Competitive storage price: the filecoin network allows anyone to become a storage provider and achieve economies of scale in a competitive way.
Provable security and authenticity: content addressing and encrypted storage proofs ensure that data is stored safely and correctly over a long period of time.
Filecoin Usage scenarios Filecoin network is a global open source storage system, created by a large number of diverse storage providers and developers. It has unparalleled flexibility and scale, and can adjust the strategy according to the needs of users in terms of backup, retrieval speed and cost.
Data transaction: users can sell data on the network, thus promoting the development of data transaction and market.
Human data: filecoin will store vital public data, such as encyclopedias, public scientific papers, knowledge sharing data sets, historical archives and literary works.
Standard blockchain scenarios: storage of distributed ledgers and applications, supply chain, etc
Payment: the filecoin token can be used to pay for products or services and transfer between users.
Time stamp: through the function of storing a large amount of data for a long time, filecoin can provide the final time stamp service.
Value storage: filecoin is a distributed, value storage tool supported by a real application cloud storage service.
Characteristics of filecoin network
The main network of filecoin allows anyone to join the network to conclude transactions, store data and get fil rewards.
Open and free: the filecoin network allows anyone to become a storage provider and make profits by providing their hard disk space to achieve economies of scale. The filecoin network aims to reward participants of different levels, from large data centers to local small and medium-sized enterprises with mining machines.
Fast as the speed of light: similar to the ultra local CDN, the retrieval market is for miners with low latency and high broadband connection to the client. These miners with superior configuration obtain filecoin by quickly providing files and data.
The more storage, the more rewards: the storage miner obtains filecoin by storing data for the user and verifying the storage by calculating the encryption proof within the corresponding time. The block rewards and transaction costs obtained are proportional to the amount of storage contributed by the miner to the filecoin network, rather than the hash computing power.
Competitiveness and incentives: filecoin creates an incentive market for the use of spare storage space. By increasing supply, we can meet growing demand at a lower price.
Filecoin lays a solid foundation for human social information
Filecoin network assists archivists, scientists and other cloud services and data experts in data backup and distribution, and provides a foundation for important public data, such as publicly accessible scientific data, innovative mass media, historical archives and archives.
At present, filecoin network has stored a lot of valuable data
Wikipedia: Wikipedia is a free, multilingual, web-based Encyclopedia with more than 20 billion views per month. Every day, thousands of visitors from all over the world edit and create thousands of articles to enrich the knowledge content of Wikipedia. The whole database of Wikipedia is stored on the filecoin network, which not only helps to expand the coverage of Wikipedia, but also verifies whether these valuable public data can be freely accessed.
OpenStreetMap: OpenStreetMap is built by a group of cartographers who contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, cafes, railway stations, etc. around the world. Contributors include enthusiasts, cartographers, GIS professionals, engineers running OSM servers, and humanitarian workers mapping disaster areas. The filecoin network will store a copy of the complete OSM data set, thus facilitating the preservation and distribution of maps.
Gnomad: genome aggregation database (gnomad) is a consortium of researchers, which aims to aggregate and coordinate exome and genome sequencing data from various large-scale sequencing projects, and provide summary data for a wider scientific community. The filecoin network will store copies of the V3 short mutation data set, which includes 71702 genomes from unrelated individuals. The sequencing of these genes is part of the study of disease specificity and population genetics.
Openaq: openaq is the world’s first open, real-time and historical air quality platform that aggregates and provides government measurement and research level data from multiple sources. Filecoin network will be committed to the mission of developing openaq, so that all people can access this data, and strive to provide clean air for all people.
Filecoin network is a powerful and active distributed cloud storage network. It is the joint efforts of all of us, which has accelerated the arrival of the era of distributed cloud storage.
