About

About Filecoin Filecoin is the L1 blockchain and storage network uniquely poised to power the open data economy. The mission of Filecoin is to create a decentralized, efficient, and robust foundation for humanity’s information. The Filecoin Virtual Machine, launched in March 2023, brings programmability to Filecoin, & has already gained traction with thousands of developers. About InterPlanetary Consensus (IPC) With IPC, decentralized apps can reach planetary-scale through recursively scalable subnets, sub-second transactions, robust compute workloads, and highly adaptable WebAssembly runtimes tailored to dev requirements. It enables the creation of flexible, living networks of customizable sidechains or "subnets", which can achieve massive scaling by running parallel chains that interoperate with one another. The journey begins with supercharging devs’ capabilities on the Filecoin network.

Prizes

📈 Most meaningful use of Interplanetary Consensus for scalability$5,000Delivered in FIL tokens
   ① $2,500       ② $1,500       ③ $1,000   
Interplanetary Consensus (IPC) is a new hyper-customizable scalability framework for both horizontal and vertical scaling, currently rooted to Filecoin and designed to be multi-chain!  Prizes will be awarded to the most meaningful usage of a custom IPC subnet, where you deploy your custom subnet(s) and utilize general message passing to perform tasks e.g. transactions, data aggregation etc.  Ideas – build subnets: * For games (board games, turn-based games, or similar) * For computation (Compute over Data, programming pipelines, etc) * With interesting FVM runtimes: this could be existing blockchain VMs or components like zkEVM, fhEVM, CairoVM, MoveVM, AgoricVM or similar. Or this could be broader virtualization technologies like: Cloudflare Workers, Docker, or even FirecrackerVM.

Qualification Requirements

Qualifying technologies: Interplanetary Consensus Prize pool split among 5 qualifying projects Bonus points for advanced configuration of a subnet for custom syscalls and built-in actors to run specialized tasks e.g. machine learning

🌐 Decentralize your dApps with Filecoin$5,000Delivered in FIL tokens
   ① $2,500       ② $1,500       ③ $1,000   
Internet grade applications need internet grade bare metal infra and enormous storage networks. Filecoin provides simple to use storage helpers, EVM compatible Filecoin Virtual Machines and also connects with powerful providers via the storage market protocol itself. Build your internet grade app on Filecoin directly or in combination with IPC.
