Decentralized, cost-effective and robust storage network

As a decentralized peer-to-peer file storage network powered by blockchain, Filecoin lets you store, retrieve and host digital information without relying on a centralized entity. Anyone with available storage space can rent it out on the Filecoin network.

FIL is Filecoin’s native currency, used as payment for the network’s services and as an economic incentive to ensure that files are stored reliably over time.
