Helpful reference materials for the Filecoin specification, implementations, and ecosystem.
Tools to check status and details of the network and chain.
- Orphan blocks (not an official protocol term in the Filecoin Spec) - Blocks without rewards that were either mined on the wrong tipset that the network fails to deliver in time, or a mix resulting in reorgs.
Web-based applications that store your data on Filecoin. No command-line or coding experience required.
Developer tools, API clients & storage services that developers can use to build on Filecoin.
NOTE: making deep calls into the chain’s history may take some time to return and it may be more efficient to use a chain database (e.g. used by block explorers) that stores the chain’s history and is optimized for queries.
Scalable endpoint hosting
For running a node cluster of load balanced Lotus JSON RPC API endpoints.
Filecoin API clients
Storage provider index API
- incentivizes valuable data stored on Filecoin with a social trust network for verified data
- Clients can apply to Notaries to receive DataCap and incentivize storage providers at 10x to their quality-adjusted power, increasing probability of block rewards
The Retrieval Market is in early development; research and development teams are actively exploring improvements.
