What Is Filecoin (FIL)?

Filecoin (FIL) is a decentralized platform used for cloud storage sharing and renting at scale. One group of users on the Filecoin network, storage providers, offer spare storage capacity, and another group, storage renters, access the storage space by paying for the service in FIL coins. There’s also a third user group — retrieval providers. These users help storage renters to access and retrieve the files hosted by storage providers. The FIL token can be earned by storage and retrieval providers for supplying the respective services to storage renters.
The Filecoin blockchain is used to store key metadata for each file on the network. The actual files handled by storage miners are kept on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), a distributed secure storage network. While blockchains can normally handle transactional metadata, they aren’t designed to host large files. In contrast, the IPFS was specifically created to enable distributed file storage services that are resistant to tampering and censorship.
