Collaboration- A Beauty of Blockchain Technology: Ethereum Classic (ETC) provides its OpenRPC for use by FilecoinOctober 8, 2020
September 16, via a medium blog Ethereum Classic, announced that it is teaming up with Filecoin in its mission to help secure human information in decentralized storage. Ethereum classic will be providing its OpenRPC for use on Filecoin’s Lotus API. Ethereum Classic’s OpenRPC is an open-source project created by its ETC Core development team for automatic documentation of APIs for use by developers and technical writers:
“OpenRPC is an ETC Labs open-source project created by its ETC Core development team that defines a standard programming language-agnostic interface description for JSON-RPC 2.0 APIs. The integration with Filecoin Lotus will offer proper documentation for developers, and make it possible to support automated type safe client generation and documentation with a minimal footprint. All while tracking the implementation changes in your API automatically. Easy as one, two, three!”
James Wo, Founder, and Chairman at ETC Labs stated that Ethereum Classic believes so much in the opportunities that decentralized storage like Filecoin will be preferred to centralized systems. He reported that Filecoin will be a major market disruptor and greater than systems like “Amazon S3, Google Cloud, and other legacy corporations that have monopolized the storage market”.
ETC’s OpenRPC will automatically generate descriptions for Filecoin’s Lotus JSON RPC API. This will help developers and Technical Writers to learn to easily and quickly interact and use Filcoin’s Lotus RPC API. Another added advantage is that these documentations will be in many languages. Therefore, OpenRPC will remove language barriers for developers and all other people who wish to access them.
Filecoin is a peer-to-peer network for file storage with economic incentives to ensure reliable storage over time. Storage miners are incentivized for storing files and proving they have done that over time. Storage and pricing is not controlled by any centralized body neither is the actual storage. Storage miners earn units of FIL for storing Files. The Filecoin blockchain records all transactions made in FIL coin along with the proof that miners have stored files correctly.
The beauty of blockchain technology becomes glaring when developers from different backgrounds and projects are able to collaborate and synergize efforts to solve problems. Different blockchains existing today is unique and solves a different problem. Each has its own specific use case. Therefore when developers come together to help solve a common problem, solutions are better achieved. ETC’s collaboration with Filecoin is one of the beautiful things that blockchain has brought.
