Filecoin is becoming more and more powerful, and the Filecoin ecosystem is thriving. Protocol LABS recently released a comprehensive picture of Filecoin’s ecosystem, covering “applications and clients, protocol lab, development tools, infrastructure, and eco-capital,” which is a huge and excellent ecosystem for Filecoin in less than a year on the mainnet. Although the mainnet has been online for less than six months, the Filecoin network already has one of the most active developer ecosystems in Web 3.0.

The amount of Filecoin network storage power growth per day kept surging to new highs from July 1, as the starting day of HyperDrive upgrade. But if we calculate the amount and define the “growth” more precisely, the start of the real storage power growth shall be counted on July 5. Taking the amount of growth on July 2 as an example, though it’s over 90 PiB , part of the growth is to recover the power loss during Filecoin v13 HyperDrive Network upgrade.

So, what does the amazing daily growth after HyperDrive upgrade stand for? …


In previous article, we have explained why HyperDrive upgrade on July 1 (Beijing time) was so important to Filecoin nework, which was due to that the reduction of the transaction fee in PreCommitSector and ProveCommitSector can improve storage efficiency.

This article mainly describes how to calculate the Gas fee after HyperDrive upgrade, taking the test result on Calibration network.

Calibration net: 0.2PiB storage power growth & 0.1 FIL total consumption per day on Filecoin network

In the Calibration network, Basefee is fixed at 100 nanoFIL, the current daily storage power growth of the whole network is about 0.2 PiB (starting…


Venus recently completed a security audit and released an audit report by Least Authority. At the same time, the Venus team released a milestone version — venus v1.0.0, which will enable global storage providers (miners) and storage clients to store their valuable data on the largest distributed storage network-Filecoin.

With the leakage of sensitive information, people pay more attention to privacy. However, the privacy problem is not directly solved by Filecoin, but needs to be stacked with differential privacy, zero knowledge proof and privacy computing to make Lego Universe in Web3 world.

On June 15, the European Court of Justice issued a notice saying that under certain conditions, data privacy…

Among them there is a critical factor — deflation, which has also attracted much attention from the market. Throughout this research, we will have series of assumption on Filecoin’s deflation.

Concept Definition:

Small deflation: the narrow sense of deflation, which means that the release amount (released by foundations, teams, mining, etc.) …


Venus is an implementation of the Filecoin in Go, the program language that the Filecoin miners are familiar with. Now, with the power from IPFSForce community, Venus has came back to Filecoin mainnet with the new feature — DISTRIBUTED MINING POOL.

Recently, the team has brought the newest update and practice-based cases in 1st quarter to three China blockchain innovative cities — Chengdu, Suzhou and Nanjing.
