The Filecoin Foundation reportedly are in charge of the overall governance of Filecoin, and they are also going to additionally support the growth and development of the community and ecosystem.  The Filecoin Dev Grants Wave 6 for priority consideration is ongoing and the time period for application is ending soon.

Filecoin expressed that EIP-1559 is a solution to volatile gas prices in times of network congestion. Check out how EIP-1559 has gone from proposal to implementation on the Filecoin network and what it means for network stability.

For clarity, EIP-1559 according to David Hoffman is the final component to Ethereum’s economic system. He has also clarified that it solves the UX surrounding gas management, and also states that it does so much more.

EIP 1559 establishes the market rate for block inclusion. Also, it burns the majority of the ETH in the transaction fee.  The protocol is focused on bringing in the required change to the Ethereum’s gas management influencing the monetary system of Ethereum. Reportedly, this protocol is hailed to be the final piece of puzzle in the Ethereum’s monetary policy.

The user experience in terms of wallets and gas management is improved with the EIP 1559.  Thus all Ether holders will benefit as opposed to exclusively benefitting validators. The protocol is considered to be important because the protocol solves more than the gas management problem and improves Ethereum’s monetary management system.

In short, EIP 1559 ‘completes the circle’, ‘finishes’, or ‘syncs up’ Ethereum’s monetary policy to what it should be.

EIP-1559 does algorithmic gas estimation in deciding the market rate for gas. Basefee generates market rate for gas prices and it formalizes going market rate for block inclusion. Thus, each and every wallet need not have their own gas estimation strategies.

Also, Burning ETH in transaction fees is a simple method to pay Ethereum for its blockspace. For clarity, Burning ETH = Paying the Network.

Filecoin (FIL) Snippets

Filecoin’s built-in verification methods makes it possible for users to trust peers in an incentivized, decentralized file storage system.  The verification methods is important to establish trust in peers.  There is a tutorial which covers for incentivized decentralized storage, preparing and transferring data, Proof of Replication (PoRep), Proof of Spacetime (PoSt), zK-SNARKs, verifying deals and more to explore. 

The Filecoin Tutorial helps users to understand the verification methods and more about the file storage system. To understand Filecoin Economy, “Filecoin Plus puts token production power in the hands of the client.
