More about Filecoin

The Filecoin network is built atop the widely popular InterPlanetary File System, a decentralized data storage and retrieval protocol used by several other cryptocurrency projects and decentralized innovations which require organized filing systems which don’t particularly require high speed data retrieval rates like in the case of live media streaming platforms.

Filecoin’s storage capabilities have been noted to be considerably larger than that of typical blockchain networks. Smaller bits of data are typically kept on blockchain networks, but in the case of Filecoin the ability for the network to store much larger data bits gives it a relatively distinct utility and use case.
