FileCoin: Decentralized Cloud Storage Competitor To AWS, Microsoft Azure, And Google Cloud

Worldwide cloud data storage is increasing at a dizzying pace. Some of today’s most valuable companies are getting rich off of their high margin cloud computing units such as Amazon’s AWS, Microsoft’s Azure, and Google Cloud. Protocol Labs IPFS which allows cryptographic hashing and the scaling of level 2 blockchain protocols, along with the dApps that sit on top of them, are likely to grow exponentially over the next decade. Additionally, users from around the globe will look to and for a Web3 cloud storage solution that can safely, cheaply, and reliably store their data. FileCoin and IPFS are likely to be the go to solution for Web3 data storage and retrieval going forward thanks to the many early adopters who use FileCoin and to the opensource platform that allows developers to integrate applications and innovate with the protocol.
