What is Filecoin?

Filecoin aims to decentralise web storage, providing an alternative to cloud computing services like Amazon Web Services as well as content delivery networks like Cloudflare. Filecoin allows almost anyone to provide storage in return for cryptocurrency. This means the Filecoin network is made up of a wide range of storage providers, from dedicated companies with fully fledged data centres to home users offering up the spare space on their home PC.

Filecoin is essentially a network of miners who provide storage and retrieval services, and clients, who utilise the storage available. It runs on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol which connects users in a peer-to-peer manner. For instance, a server farm might take advantage of the Filecoin network to make money off its unused storage space, while a video streaming platform might pay to store its content there. Payment is settled in FIL, the native token of the Filecoin platform.

Cryptocurrencies are speculative and investing in them involves significant risks - they're highly volatile, vulnerable to hacking and sensitive to secondary activity. The value of investments can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you invested. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. This content shouldn't be interpreted as a recommendation to invest. Before you invest, you should get advice and decide whether the potential return outweighs the risks.
