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.

Datapocket $6,000

Fanstop $4,000

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.

CooperDB $5,000

go-mcs-sdk $3,000

IPFS-Filecoin data rebuilder $1,000

Afiant $1,000

Computing over data is the key scenario of the IPFS/Filecoin Network. This track encourages developers to develop apps based on data stored on Filecoin. This track introduces innovations in health data, climate data analysis, New York subway data, and other scientific data.

IPFS Computing Router $6,000

The Twitter community was also allowed to share their favourite submissions. Eligible projects from other tracks with top 5 RT counts win the bounty.

Storverse $500

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. (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. , 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. , Co-Founder & Managing Partner, Waterdrip Capital

go-mcs-sdk is a good tool that helps go projects use FilSwan’s MultiChain.Storage products. , 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. , BD Director, FilSwan
