AboutFilecoin enables outsourcing of data storage to a fluid distributed network of service providers
Prototype / MVP
Still mining @ your CPU, GPU or ASIC? Forget about them! HDD & Internet channel are now your best friends!
We are proud to present totally new system: Decentralized Encrypted File Storage - FileCoin
What is it?
You getting software, witch is wallet, file storage, mining & cryptographic tool in one:
1) If you want just mine coins - give a part of your channel & HDD space for encrypted storage, used by FileCoin network, and some % of your CPU for crypto operations -> mining process started. You are getting coins proportionally between your shared resources and summary network resources.
2) You are getting your coins to standard bitcoin-like address. You can send them like any other cryptocurrency, buy & sell @ exchanges, pay in services, witch support FileCoin
3) If you need to save your private data somewhere in network anonymously - you are in right place. Just use our file storage feature, and your file is highly encrypted on many differents hosts, you really does not know where. Cryptographic algorithms encrypts your data and torrent-like network between FileCoin wallets saves your file.
4) Mining proccess is simple, as I said - you just have wallet or service/daemon started, witch supports file encryption, storaging and transport
5) Also you can receive Coins from other users, if you are hosting special functions, like backup, version history, etc.
How does it works?
This is hybrid technology between bitcoin & bittorrent, witch makes your data highly encrypted and hosted elsewhere.
Smart algorithm always moves file parts between hosts, before last three hosts with some unique data in network are down.
Minimum three hosts has copy of each block, RAID5-like block storage system
Your files are always available by your FileCoin address & encryption key
Any file, uploaded in system has magnet-like link, used by software to get file back
Network desides, where parts of your file (not whole) must be hosted
Each file separates to standard blocks, witch are encrypted and sent to different host
- Files encrypted before sending to network
- Storage encrypted @ every host
- CPU resources of network are generating unique data for file encryption
- HDD & internet channel resources shared to make bigger profit
- Only network knows, where are your files physically are
- Easy file sharing between addresses
- Corporate or private usage
- File version history, data backup, more hosts for your data, payed by FileCoins
- Easy files access like @ disk
- We are accepting feature requests
