Two days after a spur-of-the-moment launch that saw Filecoin’s FIL token rocket rocket 118% before plummeting nearly 80%, the blockchain-based data storage platform is now turning to a week-long digital conference in the hope of righting the ship.
Announced “Filecoin Liftoff Week”, the event focuses on education, infrastructure, interoperability and future plans for the project. Starting October 19, 2020, the five days of programming feature a different theme each day, such as “Building” and “The Future”.
High-profile speakers include ConsenSys founder Joe Lubin, who will participate in a fireside chat on ‘Bridging Filecoin and Ethereum’, and Internet Archive founder Brewster Khale, who will discuss’ Importance of data preservation ”. Other speakers included Aave CEO Stani Kulechov, Codefi’s product manager Corbin Page and Polychain Capital founder Olaf Carlson-Wee.
The “Mine” day of October 20 will be a highlight for potential miners. The programming will be devoted to discussions, workshops and round tables on Filecoin mining. Filecoin’s mining system offers better rewards to miners who provide network storage space; Independent miner Benjamin Hoesjbo will also provide a tutorial.
Community members have also been invited to submit their own “events and celebrations” to add to the official lineup. Attendees can see the full lineup here.
The event comes as the FIL asset looks to find bottom after hitting a high of $ 208 on October 15. It is currently trading at $ 42.52.
Despite the plunge, the Filecoin team remains optimistic about the future prospects of the project.
“This is just the start for the Filecoin network,” reads the announcement blog post.
