Discover the New Filecoin Ecosystem Explorer

The Upload V27

Filecoin is the world's largest decentralized storage network, with an ecosystem that includes upwards of 15,000 GitHub contributors and more than 3,000 projects built on Filecoin and IPFS. Now, with the launch of Filecoin Foundation’s Filecoin Ecosystem Explorer, it's easier than ever to discover these projects in our ecosystem and learn more about the teams building them! The Filecoin ecosystem is so much bigger than any one team or one project – it’s an open-source community of thousands, all committed to a decentralized storage architecture for the web. 

Unlocking the Breadth of the Ecosystem 

From storage, tooling, and productivity, to artificial intelligence, public goods, and gaming, the Filecoin network and its builders are working to solve significant challenges and innovate across industries. 

Take some time to explore the site! Here are just a few of the projects to get you started: 

  1. Democracy’s Library - This initiative from the Internet Archive is a free, open collection of government data that will ensure that government research and publications from around the world remain permanently accessible to the public. To date, Democracy’s Library has uploaded more than one petabyte of material to the Filecoin network, including information from the “End of Term Crawl” that captures and saves U.S. government websites at the end of presidential administrations.

  2. Huddle01 - Looking for a decentralized alternative to Zoom? Huddle01 is a decentralized, real-time communication network with live audio and video software development kit (SDK) for the web and mobile. This forward-thinking Web3 video conferencing platform enables cross-chain audio and video communication between users and includes features such as wallet sign-ins, token-gating, NFT avatars, and digital identities. 

  3. Fleek -  lets users host websites, store and deliver files, and develop dapps for the decentralized web. The platform provides user-friendly tools and services that enable users to implement decentralized website hosting with increased reliability and data integrity without technical complexities.

  4. Starling Lab - The Starling Lab is the academic research lab innovating with the latest cryptographic methods and decentralized web protocols to meet the technical and ethical challenges of establishing trust in our most sensitive digital records. The lab is using Filecoin to preserve the USC Shoah Foundation's archive of genocide testimonies and document the war crimes in Ukraine.

Building Together 

The Ecosystem Explorer is a crowd-sourced database. Thank you to everyone in the community who has pitched in so far to showcase their work. This database is a community effort designed to evolve with the network's dynamic growth and provide a convenient hub for ecosystem builders. Are you building on Filecoin?
