Here are our winners:
Best use of IPFS/Filecoin for file storage
The Interplanetary Filesystem (IPFS) is a peer-to-peer network and protocol designed to make the web faster, safer, and more open. Filecoin, the world’s largest decentralized storage network, allows users to store, request, and transfer data via a verifiable marketplace. The winner was judged based on the best innovation used in these areas.
Winner 1: Datapocket $6,000
Winner 2: Fanstop $4,000
MultiChain.Storage on Filecoin Network by FilSwan
MultiChain.Storage is a smart-contract-based cross-chain storage gateway on the IPFS/Filecoin networks and incorporates Chainlink Oracle technology. For this track, projects were evaluated based on who had the best idea about utilizing the MCS tools.
Winner 1: Storverse $8,000
Winner 2: CooperDB $5,000
Winner 3: go-mcs-sdk $3,000
Winners Pool Prizes:
IPFS-Filecoin data rebuilder $1,000

Here are some comments shared by mentors:
Fanstop enables users to upload encrypted files into a complex and user-unfriendly solution to get them onto IPFS. Could totally be upgraded from here though, solid base. -Ryan Baumann (Discordian), Developer Advocate, Protocol Labs
Storverse is an interesting concept with large potential impact. I like the idea of adding tags and other metadata to CIDs on IPFS/Filecoin. On the technology side, the design is nice, UI, golang, and SDK golang support. -Ricky Yuen, Blockchain Engineer, FilSwan
CooperDB used IPFS/Filecoin and Filswan MCS. They have a good idea to provide tools for Web2 developers to onboard. It could be great if the demo can be playable, and UI can be improved. -Jademont.eth, Co-Founder & Managing Partner, Waterdrip Capital
go-mcs-sdk is a good tool that helps go projects use FilSwan’s MultiChain.Storage products. -Gary Gao, Head of Filecoin Business, FBG Capital
IPFS Computing Router is a useful tool for computing data based on IPFS/Fileocin. The result upload on MultiChain.Storage is useful for payment for computing from different chains. Looking forward for more features. -Charley Chen, BD Director, FilSwan
