Filecoin Unleashed: Exploring Advancements in Data Storage and Collaboration

• Filecoin is revolutionizing data storage through its blockchain-based cloud storage platform.
• The project has attracted major partners such as Lockheed Martin and recently entered into a partnership with venture capital firm a16z.
• Filecoin launched its Filecoin Virtual Machine (FVM) Builder Cohort on the Mainnet, unleashing a wave of new possibilities.

Filecoin Revolutionizes Data Storage

Filecoin is revolutionizing data storage through its blockchain-based cloud storage platform. Through its native token FIL, the project incentivizes a global network of computer operators to provide a file-sharing and storage service. Major partners such as Lockheed Martin are worth more than $100 billion and have collaborated to develop a program for deploying the Interplanetary File System (IPFS) in space. Protocol Labs which founded and funds the development of Filecoin, has also entered into a partnership with venture capital firm a16z which has over $35 billion in assets under management for targeted support to some of web3’s most visionary founders participating in the 2023 Crypto Startup School (CSS) accelerator program.

Launch of FVM Cohort

Mid-last month, the platform underwent an upgrade with the launch of Filecoin Virtual Machine (FVM) Builder Cohort on the Mainnet. Over 60 project teams were building with FVM on its Hyperspace testnet and were part of this mainnet pioneers cohort aimed at supporting the creation of impactful and sustainable solutions, on FVM, as part of Protocol Labs network. The launch “unleashed a wave of new possibilities including programmable storage primitives such as storage bounties and auctions, cross-chain interoperability bridges, data-centric DAOs, Layer 2 solutions (reputation systems, computation fabrics etc.).”

SEC Goes After Filecoin

Despite much optimism for Filecoin’s future prospects in data storage, it has come under fire from the U.S Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC issued an enforcement order against Protocol Labs due to potential violations related to conducting unregistered securities offerings by selling FIL tokens between 2017 – 2019 despite not being registered or qualified for exemption from registration requirements. As part of settlement terms Protocol Labs will pay $26 million in disgorgement plus interest while undertaking certain remedial measures including registering with SEC.
