Why We Fund Builders Who Adapt Filecoin & IPFS in Their Stack

Filecoin and IPFS are complementary protocols for storing and sharing data in the distributed web. As the world’s largest decentralised network they allow users to store, request, and transfer data via a verifiable marketplace. Filecoin and IPFS are completely open-source, enabling people from all over the world to participate.

An alternative to costly cloud storage, the Filecoin network offers efficiently priced and geographically decentralised storage that will act as the backbone of The Open Metaverse. Whether you are a builder of Data Infrastructure, Layer 2 Middleware or an entrepreneur within Open Data Economy working on a Data Union project - you came to the right place.
