GBBC Virtual Members Forum with Filecoin Foundation
March 4 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
The Filecoin Foundation is an independent organization dedicated to supporting Filecoin, an open source, decentralized peer-to-peer storage network with built-in economic incentives to ensure files are stored reliably over time. In contrast to more traditional centralized storage networks, which may be subject to large-scale outages, censorship, and don’t allow for the creation of an open market.
