The Filecoin network is a decentralized peer-to-peer file storage network that is used to store and retrieve data. FIL is the currency of the Filecoin network. Think of it as a traditional cloud storage but instead of having one provider, it is a network made up of many individual providers. This distributed infrastructure of networks means users don’t have to trust a single source for their data storage, thereby solidifying its security. You can buy and sell FIL for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade FIL for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade FIL to CAD based on the FIL price.

FIL is the cryptocurrency of the Filecoin network, a decentralized peer-to-peer storage network that can be used to store, retrieve and host digital information. Due to its distributed infrastructure, Filecoin is secure and more reliable than a traditional cloud storage solution. FIL tokens are used to pay for these services. If you’re interested in mining, there are two options available on the Filecoin network. Miners can choose to either be storage dealers or retrieval dealers. Storage dealers get funded on the chain by clients to store data (and must provide proof of storage to get rewarded), whereas retrieval dealers extract data from storage for their clients. This type of deal is funded off the chain – usually via a micropayment channel.

You may want to consider buying FIL if you would like to:
