About us

The Foundation coordinates and supports the creation and improvement of open-source software and open protocols for decentralized data storage and retrieval networks.
Our Mission
The Foundation's key role is to find ways for the Filecoin community to solve the problems we face as a community, and help facilitate collective action.
Internet of Everyone

Filecoin Foundation does not own Filecoin, operate it, or manage it.

It is one of many organizations that cares deeply about Filecoin — its potential, and the values it represents.
However, the foundation has a unique position within that ecosystem to help cultivate research, development, and community engagement.
Collective Action

The Foundation helps the Filecoin community solve problems and facilitates collective action.

This means resisting the natural tendency of organizations to grow and accumulate value within themselves, and instead cultivating value creation outside the Foundation in the broader Filecoin ecosystem.
