"Without data, an AI [model] can’t learn. If the data is compromised due to a single-point of failure, or the central data storage entity changes access rights or its prices, an AI [model] that is dependent on that storage entity will cease to be. It is an existential risk, which is why I argue that AIs must use a decentralized storage solution... That is why the decentralized data storage network powered by FIL is a must-have for the burgeoning AI economy.”
"The largest decentralised data storage project by storage capacity and total bytes of data stored is Filecoin (FIL). Filecoin is particularly appealing because it has been around for a few years and is already storing a large amount of data."
"This is the true power and benefit of Filecoin - its ability to separate software from hardware. While in the traditional cloud model, clients are constrained to a single provider, in this new model, applications, software and data can be distributed across different hardware sources, ranging from the client’s proprietary infrastructure to smaller outsourced providers or even major platforms like Amazon. Filecoin breaks walled gardens and introduces a composable platform."
“[The FVM] facilitates the explosion of smart contracts activity on top of FIL... following the FVM launch [the activity] has exploded.”
“The natural pairing [of storage and compute] can add additional commercial activity to flow through the Decentralised Storage Network while opening up new use cases. The launch of the FEVM makes many of these possible and will make the storage space much more interesting and competitive.”
“Filecoin emerges as a meaningful ecosystem on par with Ethereum and Solana in terms of legitimacy.”
“I see Filecoin being a superset of Arweave with the FVM - it gives you infinitely more ways to parametrize; Filecoin is vastly more configurable than Arweave.”
“Filecoin has the potential to become the premier storage network in the modern internet era and with the FVM and supporting infrastructure like Medusa and Bacalhau, I can see a lot of scope for high-quality growth in the Filecoin ecosystem.”
