Discover the key facts about Filecoin (FIL).

About Filecoin

Filecoin is a decentralized, open-source cloud storage system. It aims to solve resiliency and efficacy issues that challenge the web’s biggest centralized cloud storage providers, while allowing users to have greater access and control over their data. By relying on a network of operators instead of a single central server, Filecoin’s cloud storage is by its nature more resistant to censorship and denial of service attacks. Users can earn FIL, Filecoin’s native token, by mining (either “storage mining” or “retrieval mining”) and by storing data on the protocol.
