  • 有任何创意,建议和其他想法,请填写意见表

诸如此类请求经常出现在推送给项目支持者的更新中,更多可能是在私下沟通中提及。我们选择广泛发布这些信息,因为我们深信社区中的每个人都能为 Filecoin 的成功做出巨大贡献,而这样做也符合我们的共同利益。Filecoin 的成功会造福社区的所有人——矿工,客户,合伙人,用户,研究者,投资者,开发者等。虽然我们更多的需要来自已经做出有力承诺的团队的帮助,比如开发者和投资者,但我们希望和欢迎每个人都能参与进来,贡献自己的一份力量!

3. Filecoin博客发布

此次更新标志着新的 Filecoin博客(Filecoin Blog)发布。我们在上面交叉发布了协议实验室博客(Protocol Labs Blog)中所有与 Filecoin 具体相关的内容,因此这个博客将成为发布 Filecoin 公告的主要渠道。

2018年,我们为 Filecoin 博客设定了许多计划,您将在博客中看到技术层面的深入研究、讲解、活动公告、像这样的定期更新等等,如果您希望我们增加某些特定的内容,欢迎随时给我们提供建议。

4. IPFS发展与应用

IPFS和Filecoin是互补协议:IPFS定址和移动内容,Filecoin是其缺少的激励机制。IPFS的持续发展为Filecoin协议提供重要的支撑层,IPFS的持续应用标志着市场对更快、更安全、去中心化存储服务的需求增加。

过去几个月,IPFS社区和IPFS网络的发展突飞猛进。其中包括go-ipfs(0.4.11, 0.4.12, 0.4.13)和js-ipfs(0.26.0, 0.27.0)重要版本的发布。人们持续在IPFS上开发应用。举个例子,在IPFS的技术支持下,OpenBazaar发布了2.0版本,将其网络扩展至25,000个节点。IPFS直接整合至Brave浏览器中。Computes 正在用IPFS建造一台分布式超级计算机。澳大利亚研究者将 Hadoop 置于IPFS之上进行p2p数据分析。构建这样的应用程序变得越来越容易。PeerPad是一个开源软件(alpha阶段),展示开发者们如何利用IPFS构建无服务器、实时的、离线协作式应用。Cloudy是一个围绕去中心化和社区网络建立的GNU/Linux分布。区块链生态系统中越来越多的项目依赖IPFS和libp2p。新的项目包括:DTude,一个去中心化的视频平台;Bloom,一个去中心化的信用评分系统;Decentraland,一个虚拟现实仿真平台;等等。

IPFS持续稳步发展,服务更大规模的用户群体和更多应用程序。但是要让全世界的人们和社区能够控制在他们的机器和网络上存储的数据,还有很多工作要做。IPFS维护者和广大的IPFS社区正专心着手这些工作,为IPFS应用实现大规模的去中心化存储。

5. SAFT项目发布

过去一年我们投入了大量精力和资源开发一个合法的代币销售架构。Filecoin Sale是这个框架的第一次应用,我们在10月份正式发布了SAFT项目——协议实验室(Protocol Labs)、Cooley和其他许多代币开发者、法律专家和投资者之间的一个合作项目。我们的目标是像处理软件协议开发一样处理法律协议开发:有一个强大的社区、明确的目标和严谨的工作。希望我们的努力能为开发者们解决目前大部分的难题、不确定性,节约代币网络筹募资金的成本。

SAFT获得了极大的认可与应用。在许多代币销售案例中,代币开发者和投资者使用SAFTs处理交易。据估计,用SAFTs进行交易的金额已经接近或超过五亿美元,而近期的监管行动与SAFT框架的评估和谐相容。如需了解更多,可以访问SAFT项目官网和Github,或查阅CoinDesk,CoinCenter, 福布斯(Forbes)和经济学人(The Economist)的最新报道。

7. 工程与开发进展 (大家最关心的)

我们正在非常努力地开发Filecoin 协议。Filecoin得到了强大的技术基础支撑,如IPFS, libp2p2, 和以太坊。 所以很多技术难点已经得到了解决。我们致力于一些新问题上

我们的主要工作放在构建,测试filecoin相关的新功能上,这些都是长期重要的。如下:

  1. Filecoin 区块链数据结构和算法
  2. 状态树(State Tree)

用于显示filecoin中,文件,账户,合约的世界范围所有状态。

  1. 核心智能合约

管理文件存储,修复,检索,挖矿

  1. 合约的执行

针对filecoin进行修改

  1. 库合约化

用于个人用户,数据存储,交易,以及其他协议

  1. 底层的原型

复制证明,时空证明

  1. Filecoin挖矿协议,序列化工作,以及共识算法。
  2. Filecoin经济结构

包括矿工抵押物,存储,以及检索的报酬。

这个季度,我们精力主要放在矿工节点的初始结构,整合libp2p和filecoin以及其他功能。处理了1,2,4,6等问题。 (注:3,5,7,8还没解决)

现在有些技术问题我们还在解决:

  1. 纠删码的数据结构设计 纠删码将可伸缩性发挥大,失败概率发挥最小,维持索引的开销最低。
  2. 无需许可的交易系统的延迟问题 在存储和检索文件,常规交易时经常发生
  3. 改进状态和执行模型的结构。
  4. 交易处理的扩展性
  5. 形式化验证和更安全的智能合约语言。
  6. 在短期或者长期掉线环境下的操作。

欢迎做研究或者开发相关兴趣爱好者联系我们。team@filecoin.io。特别是拥有密码学或者分布式系统的专业背景。

7.1 区块链经济系统 研究与开发

我们调研了很多其他优秀的区块链协议和学术社区,并受到了启发。有很多有趣的区块链项目吸引了我们,利用好这些可以改善我们的Filecoin。以下是些例子:

  • Ethereum (以太坊)
    • 以太坊给了我们很大的帮助。我们在以太坊之上构建了Filecoin。以太坊给Filecoin做的贡献列都列不下来了。区块链的状态,执行模型,EVM,合约接口等等。最近他们又有两个贡献,1.将零知识证明zk-SNARKs做为基本需求,添加到EVM里。2.研究如何将webassembly技术开发成编译器选项。(EWASM)
  • Zcash(零币)
    • Zcash在zk-SNAKR的开发和应用的领域,已经成为了领导者。他们依然推动新的研究和改进。他们最近又有让人激动的开发成果,比如1. BLS12-381(一种椭圆曲线算法)。2. 将TAU(Pi的两倍)乘方 (powers of Tau ceremony)作为参数生成器。
  • Tezos
    • 我们一直在研究其他合约VM和智能合约系统,特别是那些朝着形式化证明的。 我们为这些成果喝彩,继续保持密切关注。因为区块链需要更好特性的编程语言。(可证明的,更强类型的系统)
  • Ethereum verification(以太坊证明)
    • 我们也怀着同样的热情,去研究和尝试一些新的合约语言。他们是在EVM(合约虚拟机)之上构建的更安全的语言。市面上已经有多篇很有前景的论文,我们在这个领域会继续评估和尝试的。
  • 当然,我们也在利用我们的团队和社区项目成果。(IPFS,libp2p,IPLD,和多规格项目)这些成果还可以被其他区块链项目用。这些项目致力于构建更强大,更稳定的web 3.0时代.
  • STARKs and Bulletproofs
    • 这是个验证计算的伟大时代。STARKs 和 Bulletproofs 是两种透明的,无交互式的零知识证明系统。Filecoin也许能使用它们的算法。我们正在评估它们的代价和可行性。

7.2 开放式问题和提案企划书(RFPs)

在2018年早期,我们将启动开放问题和提案企划书项目,来启发和帮助我们的工作。开放式问题清单提供了一个场所,让我们注意到一些开发前进的重要方向。我们通过提案企划书项目鼓励和奖励那些帮助我们分析问题并解决问题的人。

好好期待吧!

8. 投资者SAFTs和警告

10月份,所有的投资者SAFTs都已通过邮件发送出去。我们得知一部分邮件被过滤为垃圾邮件,我们会尽快重新发送。我们给SAFTs添加了加密签名,以便证实其有效性,因此您即将收到的新版本是最终确定版本。如需了解更多关于如何处理SAFTs和代币的问题,请发送邮件至sale@filecoin.io.

投资者警告:在Filecoin代币预售期间和之后,我们注意到已经出现了一些试图欺骗投资者的行为,声称正在出售Filecoin SAFTs或代币。还有一些毫无道德的交易所挂牌Filecoin和Filecoin期货。请务必牢记,直到网络发布时,Filecoin代币才会被激活,任何挂牌Filecoin或IPFS代币的交易所可能都是欺诈性的。请不要相信任何声称正在购买、售卖或交易Filecoin和Filecoin期货的交易所或企业。Filecoin网络和代币上线时我们会在此宣布,在这之前我们强烈建议您远离这些欺骗者和交易所。

9. CoinList

为了让ICO融资变得合法且便捷,我们发布了CoinList。这个平台在很多方面进行了创新。它通过首次引入SAFT工具,开发出了新的合法架构;提高了遵守法规的门槛;引入了新的支付选项,能同时接受ETH, BTC, ZEC和美元。此外还包含一些安全改进,比如一个由IPFS托管的HD钱包验证工具。它还通过现代的用户界面和结构化的邮件支持,优化了投资者体验。

Filecoin 预售证明了 CoinList 平台的可行性。自此之后,这个项目吸引了一些想要发布项目的代币开发者和更多想要投资加密货币资产的投资者。因为项目备受关注,协议实验室和 AnfelList 将 CoinList 划分为一个独立的公司,由一个专门的团队负责运营。九月份开始,CoinLList 已经完成了另外两笔销售:Blockstack 和 PROPS,且已经成长为代币筹募资金和投资的主要平台。

在交易过程中,Filecoin SAFTs 暂时从 CoinList 平台移除,将在2018年年初恢复。如需了解更多关于 CoinList 的信息,请访问 coinlist.co.

用户和矿工

最终,Filecoin网络有了一个非常强大的开端。成千上万热情的早期存储用户和矿工已经签约了我们的早期用户和早期矿工项目。目前我们正在约见其中一小部分但范围广泛的参与者,收集他们的见解,以了解我们的使用体验设计和市场激励等情况。如果您或您认识的人有兴趣成为存储用户或矿工,请帮忙传播这些信息,尽快告知我们,帮助我们为您开展计划。

  • 如有兴趣成为存储用户,请填写Filecoin早期用户表格。
  • 如有兴趣成为矿工,请填写Filecoin早期矿工表格。

感谢大家迄今为止以及未来给我们提供的所有支持,提前感谢大家的引荐、想法和建议。您的帮助对我们的项目进展至关重要。

协议实验室和Filecoin团队所有工作人员祝大家节日愉快,2018年对我们所有人来说都是美好的一年。:)

Dear Filecoin supporters, miners, users, investors, and broader community,

Since the completion of the token sale, we have been heads down turning Filecoin’s tremendous potential into reality – from implementing the core parts of the Filecoin protocol to growing our team with the best talent we can find. Below is an update from our team, as well as a set of specific “asks” for you, our community.

Table of contents

  1. Community Updates - an Overview
  2. Asks - How You Can Help
  3. Launch of the Filecoin Blog
  4. Growth and Adoption of IPFS
  5. Launch of the SAFT project
  6. Growing the Team
  7. Filecoin Engineering & Development
  8. Investor SAFTs and Warnings
  9. CoinList
  10. Clients & Miners

1. Community Updates - an Overview

These updates will keep the Filecoin Community up to date on the progress of the Filecoin project and its supporting projects (ie. IPFSlibp2pthe SAFT project, and others). We will also ask for your help. Keep an eye out for explicit “asks”, which highlight ways you can contribute to the success of Filecoin. We plan to broadcast these updates periodically – at least once a quarter, and in some cases more frequently. We will publish these to our new blog, and send them by email to our partners, investors, prospective users & miners, and general subscribers.

Finally, we strongly encourage an open line of communication, with any suggestions, ideas, questions, feedback, or other thoughts. Please use this suggestion form or email us at team@filecoin.io with your comments. With thousands of people involved, we may take some time to respond, but we will read your note. This year, as our team’s capacity grows and we get closer to a testnet launch, we will open official community forums where the discussion can blossom broadly.

2. Asks - How You Can Help

We have a unique opportunity to leverage the collective knowledge, capabilities, and networks of our formidable community to accelerate the success of Filecoin. We will be asking for your help along several dimensions: research problems, development and testing, organization building, partnerships, recruiting, and more.

Here are some top priorities that our community can help us with in the short-term:

Asks like these are typical in updates to project supporters, though perhaps more typical in private communications. We choose to publish these broadly, as we believe everybody in our community can contribute tremendously to the success of Filecoin, and it is in our shared interest to do so. The success of Filecoin will benefit all our community – miners, clients, partners, users, researchers, investors, developers, and more. Naturally, we require more from groups who have made strong commitments – such as developers and investors – but we want everybody to feel invited and empowered to help!

3. Launch of the Filecoin Blog

This update marks the launch of the new Filecoin Blog. We have cross-posted all Filecoin specific posts from the Protocol Labs Blog, which we had been using to publish Filecoin news. Henceforth, this will be the main channel for Filecoin announcements.

We have lots of plans for this blog in 2018. Expect to see technical deep-dives, explainers, event announcements, periodic updates like this one, and more. If you would like to request certain kinds of posts, feel free to send us suggestions.

4. Growth and Adoption of IPFS

IPFS and Filecoin are complementary protocols: IPFS addresses and moves content, and Filecoin is the missing incentive structure. Continued development of IPFS provides an important support layer for the Filecoin Protocol and continued adoption of IPFS signals increasing market demand for a faster, safer, decentralized storage service.

Over the past few months the IPFS Community and the IPFS Network have made great strides. There were major releases for both go-ipfs (0.4.110.4.120.4.13) and js-ipfs (0.26.00.27.0). People continue to build exciting apps on IPFS. For example, OpenBazaar shipped their 2.0 release, powered by IPFS, and grew their network to 25,000 nodes. There is a new integration of IPFS directly in the Brave browserComputes are building a distributed supercomputer with IPFS. Researchers in Australia have put Hadoop on IPFS for peer-to-peer data analytics. It keeps getting easier to build applications like these. PeerPad is an open source app (in alpha) that shows how developers can use IPFS to build their own serverless, real-time, offline-first collaborative dapps. Cloudy is a GNU/Linux distribution built around decentralization and community networks. More and more projects in the blockchain ecosystem rely on IPFS and libp2p. New such projects include: DTube, a decentralized video platform; Bloom, a decentralized credit scoring system; Decentraland, a virtual reality platform; and more. We have also seen IPFS appear in important sociopolitical issues. When the Spanish government blocked access to information about the independence referendum in Catalonia, activists used IPFS to distribute censorship-resistant websites with sample ballots and lists of polling locations.

IPFS continues to grow steadily, serve larger sets of users and more kinds of applications. But there is a lot more work to do to enable people and communities worldwide to control what data is stored on their machines and on their networks. The IPFS maintainers and the broader IPFS community are tackling that work with verve. Many IPFS developers eagerly await the arrival of Filecoin, which will enable large-scale decentralized storage for IPFS applications.

5. Launch of the SAFT Project

Over the past year we’ve dedicated a significant amount of energy and resources to develop a framework for legally compliant token sales. While the Filecoin Sale was the first use of that framework, we formally launched the SAFT Project in October - a collaboration between Protocol Labs, Cooley, and many other token creators, legal experts, and investors. Our goal is to approach legal protocol development the same way we approach software protocol development: with a thoughtful community, strong goals, and rigorous work. We hope our efforts will save creators much of the current headache, uncertainty, and cost associated with raising money for token networks.

The reception and adoption has been tremendous. SAFTs have been used by token creators and investors to transact in dozens of token sales. It is estimated that close to or more than half a billion dollars has been transacted with SAFTs and recent regulatory action is congruent with the SAFT framework’s assessments. To find out more visit the SAFT Project Website and Github, or review some recent press from CoinDeskCoinCenterForbes and The Economist.

6. Growing the Team

Ambitious projects like Filecoin succeed or fail depending on their teams. One of our top priorities – in the past, present, and future – is to grow our team with brilliant, masterful, hardworking people who share our vision and mission. Our recruiting is focused on strengthening the core engineering, research, and business development teams, as well as filling a few key operational roles.

Our network is large thanks to you. We need your help sourcing as many excellent candidates for our open positions. As a distributed team, we hire anywhere in the world, and at various levels of experience (entry, senior, staff, etc). We look for people with unique perspectives and diverse backgrounds. If you – or someone you know – may be a good fit, please apply.

For a full list, please visit our current openings page. Please take a moment to share these role(s) with your network or email us with suggestions. We must cast a wide net in order to find the best candidates, and you can help us significantly in this effort.

7. Filecoin Engineering & Development

We have been hard at work on implementing the Filecoin Protocol. Filecoin builds on the strong foundations laid by IPFS, libp2p, and Ethereum. This means a large number of very difficult pieces are already implemented, and we can focus on connecting these battle-tested components.

The bulk of our implementation work involves building and testing new Filecoin-specific parts, which are still monumental endeavors. This includes:

  1. the Filecoin Blockchain data structures and algorithms.
  2. the State Tree, which represents all world state for files, accounts, and contracts on Filecoin.
  3. the core contracts that will manage file Storage, Repair, Retrieval, and Mining.
  4. contract execution itself, optimized for Filecoin.
  5. library contracts for user agents, data storage and exchange, and other protocols.
  6. low-level primitives such as Proofs-of-Replication and Proofs-of-Spacetime.
  7. the Filecoin mining protocol, sequential work, and consensus.
  8. economic structures, such as miner pledges, collaterals, storage and retrieval payments.

This quarter, we have been focused on the initial structure of the mining node, on wiring up libp2p, IPFS, and the other components, and then tackling (1), (2), (4), and (6) above.

Here are some of the technical problems we are exploring:

  • Erasure Coding structures in Filecoin that maximize resilience, minimize probabilities of failure, and keep index overheads low.
  • Latency issues in permissionless transactional systems, for storing and retrieving files, as well as for regular transactions.
  • Structural improvements for the state and execution model.
  • Scalability of transaction processing.
  • Formal Verification and safer smart-contract languages.
  • Operation in temporarily or long-term disconnected environments.

We invite anybody interested in any of these parts, both research and implementation, to contact us at team@filecoin.io, specially people with backgrounds in cryptography research or distributed systems implementation.

7.1. Blockchain Ecosystem R&D

We continue to review and be inspired by the excellent work of other protocols and the academic community. In particular, we are paying close attention to many interesting developments, which may improve Filecoin. Here are some examples:

  • Ethereum has inspired lots of our work, and we are building with it. The list of things we leverage from Ethereum is long – the Blockchain state and execution models, the EVM, contract interfaces, and so on. Two recent interesting contributions are the addition of primitives required for zk-SNARKs directly to the EVM, and the exploration of WebAssembly as a compilation target (eWASM).
  • Zcash: The Zcash team has been a leader in the development and application of zk-SNARKs, and is continuously pushing forward new research and improvements. Recent exciting developments include work on the BLS12-381 curve, and the Powers of Tau parameter generation ceremony.
  • Polkadot: the team pursues many protocol and system improvements based on learnings from implementing Ethereum and many other protocols. One such decision: to formally distinguish and use hard-coding and soft-coding of core contracts where relevant, with a scheduled replacement (user space vs kernel space).
  • Tezos: we continue to study other VM and smart contract execution systems, especially those that aim towards formal verification. We applaud their work in this area, and continue to watch closely, as we believe blockchains desperately need programming languages with better properties (verifiability, stronger type systems, etc).
  • Ethereum verification: in the same vein, we are studying and experimenting with works that build safer languages on top of the EVM. There have been several promising papers, and we will be conducting evaluations and experiments in this area.
  • Of course, we continue to leverage the improvements made by our teams and communities in the IPFSlibp2pIPLD, and multiformats projects. These are also leveraged by other blockchain projects, which will build a stronger, more robust, and interoperable Web 3.0.
  • STARKs and Bulletproofs: it is a great time for verifiable computation. STARKs and Bulletproofs are two transparent non-interactive zero-knowledge proof systems, which Filecoin may use for some of its proof algorithms. We are exploring tradeoffs and constructions.

7.2. Open Problems and RFPs

Early in 2018, we will launch listings of open problems and a Request-for-Proposal (RFP) program to inspire and support work. The Open Problem listing will give us a venue to draw attention to important directions for improvements – for Filecoin and blockchains in general. The RFPs will allow us to motivate and reward people who help us solve those problems and implement their solutions. Keep an eye out for announcements!

8. Investor SAFTs and Warnings

In October, all investor SAFTs were sent out by email. We heard some of these emails were caught in spam filters, so to avoid issues we will be re-sending them again soon. We have also added a cryptographic signature to the SAFTs that verifies its validity, so the new version you will receive will be the definitive one. For more information on how to treat SAFTs and how tokens will be issued, please read the sale completion post or email us at sale@filecoin.io.

Investor caution: during and after the Filecoin token sale we’ve seen several attempts to defraud investors from actors claiming to be selling Filecoin SAFTs or tokens. Similarly, we’ve seen unscrupulous exchanges listing Filecoin and Filecoin derivatives. Remember that the Filecoin token will not be live until network launch, and any exchange that lists Filecoin or IPFS tokens is likely fraudulent. We strongly recommend not trusting any exchange or entity who claims to be buying, selling, or trading Filecoin tokens or derivatives. We will announce here when the Filecoin Network and token go live, until then we strongly recommend staying away from such actors and exchanges.

9. CoinList

We originally launched CoinList to make token-based fundraising easy and legally compliant. The platform innovated on many fronts. It developed new legal frameworks by introducing the SAFTinstrument for the first time. It raised the bar for legal compliance. It introduced new payment options, accepting ETH, BTC, ZEC, and USD simultaneously. It incorporated security improvements, such as an IPFS-hosted HD Wallet verification tool. And it improved the investor experience through a modern user interface and structured email support.

The Filecoin sale proved the CoinList platform. Since then, the project has attracted new token creators looking to launch their projects and more investors looking to invest in crypto-assets. To give the platform the attention it deserves, Protocol Labs and AngelList spun out CoinList as its own separate company with a dedicated team. Since September, CoinList has already completed two more sales – Blockstack and PROPS – and has grown into the leading platform for token fundraising and investment.

During the transition, Filecoin SAFTs were temporarily removed from the CoinList platform, and will be added back in early 2018. For more information on CoinList, please visit coinlist.co.

10. Clients and Miners

Finally, the Filecoin Network is off to a very strong start. Tens of thousands of very enthusiastic early storage users and miners have already signed up for our early user and early miner programs. Currently we’re meeting with a small but wide-ranging subset of them, gathering insights to inform our design of onboarding experiences, market incentives, and more. Please spread the word on these forms – if you or someone you know are interested in becoming storage users or miners, notifying us sooner will help us plan with you.

Thank you for all your support so far, and in the future. And thank you in advance for your referrals, ideas, and suggestions. Your help is critical to our progress.

All of us at Protocol Labs and the Filecoin Team wish you the best for the holidays, and for 2018, which should be a great year for all of us 🙂

The Filecoin Team
