Filecoin is not your typical product. It is: a technical protocol, an open-source software project, a cryptocurrency, a decentralized storage market and marketplace, and a platform. Filecoin’s success as a project depends on its ability to attract developers from all industries and all over the world to build world-class tooling and applications for the Filecoin ecosystem. The Filecoin Developer Platform team is responsible for building Filecoin into one of the world’s best platforms for developers, and the work done on this team is instrumental to the success of the world’s largest decentralized storage network.
