So in my eyes what IPFS is doing with filecoin is a natural progression to the IPFS system. I’m doing some reading right now on their claims, as they are toting their network is “self healing” etc which sounds very familiar as well as PoR (proof of replication) which is like proof of resource.
I’m also curious if anyone here has a deep understanding of these claims and how hard drive space is allocated. Is it automatic as SAFE will be or more like the Storj model? So far it sounds like the latter. I think IPFS is the Safe Networks only real competitor though filecoin is Blockchain based… All this talk of marketing lately, I feel like they are doing a pretty good job, a little hypy and using our buzz words as others have muddied up such as farming rather than mining. Their images on their site that conveys getting paid for hard drive space is neat. Share any relevant thoughts.
