The flow of the world’s information has never been controlled by so few. Giant tech companies such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft have become gatekeepers for the world’s information.
Even in blockchain, centralized cloud services like Amazon Web Services power the overwhelming majority of Web3’s architecture.
But with the launch of Filecoin, the decentralized file sharing service, there’s now a genuine alternative. Filecoin’s promise is to allow anyone across the globe to rent out hard drive space to anyone else, and earn tokens for their trouble.
“Filecoin really brings for the first time the ability to have a large-scale application to be fully Web 3.0-native, so you can do things like video streaming or entire social networks, those kinds of applications are now possible in a Web 3.0 environment,” says Protocol Labs CEO Juan Benet.
You’re invited to an exclusive online discussion on November 19, 2020 with the Filecoin team about the project’s launch, its roadmap and what the future might hold for the decentralized file-sharing network.
Speakers at the Around the Campfire event include:
- Juan Benet - CEO, Filecoin
- Josh Quittner - Editorial director, Decrypt
- Angie Lau - CEO, Forkast.News
- Paul Cheung, Director of Technology Innovation, Knight Foundation
- Molly Mackinlay - Senior Product Manager, Filecoin
