The developers of the Filecoin protocol updated the project’s roadmap, according to which the test network will be launched on December 11.
We are not yet announcing a mainnet launch date, but we expect it to be 1-2 quarters after our testnet launch. We will post the exact launch date in Q1 2020.
The indicated deadlines are optimistic and may be adjusted, the developers added. They also said that a roadmap update is made every two quarters.
Earlier, the launch of the main network was announced by Filecoin representatives in mid-2019.
The Filecoin project has been implemented by the California Protocol Labs since 2014. Its goal is to create an effective data storage solution based on the IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) decentralized network protocol.
In 2017, during the first ever regulated ICO, the project raised a record $ 257 million at that time.
