May 8, 2020 The Filecoin Foundation launches ‘Filecoin Discover’ program.

The Filecoin Foundation, the entity behind the decentralized storage project, Filecoin, has launched its ‘Filecoin Discover’ cryptoeconomic project that aims to seed the Filecoin network before a full network launch, expected later this year. The project means that parties interested in becoming Filecoin miners can purchase 8 TB hard drives at $265 each that contain ‘public good’ data such as climate and genomic data with which they can offer via the network in return for network rewards.
