Today marks the end of one epic the journey and the beginning of another. Early this morning, the Filecoin Mainnet went live. It marks the end of years of speculation and excitement regarding the launch. At the same time, it marks the beginning of a new decentralized storage network that has the potential to continue running, upgrading, and storing our critical data for the rest of humanity.
2:45 GMT Oct 15, 2020 – Filecoin goes live!
To all those involved over the past months and years, this is a super exciting day. At Textile, we had a viewing party to watch the logs tick over, and Mainnet go live in all our systems. If you haven't been involved or are just getting your bearings, there's a ton of opportunity for you to launch into Mainnet with us.
Join us next week for Filecoin Liftoff Week, where many of the core builders, organizers, and collaborators will be sharing information about different pieces of the network. We'll be part of the BUILD day on Wednesday and look forward to seeing you all there.
Congratulations to the entire Protocol Labs team for pulling off such a huge feat! Now, let's save some data.
