Filecoin, the decentralized storage network, is set to launch the Decentralized Storage Alliance through a partnership with Protocol Lab and other participants within the Web3 ecosystem. According to a Businesswire report, Filecoin’s reason behind launching its newly formed storage alliance is to help Web2 enterprises transition to Web3 through advocacy, best practices, and education.
Filecoin will achieve its goal of making a Decentralized Storage Alliance by bringing together diverse viewpoints from leading Web2 and Web3 industry players, like Ernst & Young, Advanced Micro Devices, and Seagate, data storage solutions providers. Filecoin’s purpose is to create a space, which is trusted, and where different companies can collaborate around Web3 technologies, such as decentralized storage, to accelerate its adoption.
In their new project, they are also looking to provide educational materials and technical resources accessible to users. By acquiring this knowledge, the users will improve the process of onboarding data to decentralized storage networks. The new data centers can quickly onboard to the network through this information.
Stefaan Vervaet, Protocol Labs’ head of network growth, claimed that top-tier leaders across Web2 and Web3 are coming together to explore the unrealized potential of decentralized technology. Stefaan believes that their new Alliance has the power to transform the foundation of the internet.
It’s not the first incentive of Protocol Labs towards making Web3 safer and easily accessible for users, but they took many steps towards this. On the 25th of October, the Protocol Labs launched CO2.Storage, Web3 data solution whose purpose is to enable transparency for carbon offsets. It will also address traditional storage solutions for all digital environmental assets, such as renewable energy credits—the initiative of launching CO2.Storage was designed to reduce the ecological impact of Filecoin.
The reason behind launching a new decentralized storage alliance is to promote awareness and adoption of decentralized technologies, such as IPFS, Libp2p, and Filecoin.
