Solana Filecoin integration catalyzes FIL price gains

One of the key critiques of the Solana network has been the centralized storage solutions. SOL’s integration with Filecoin moves the network away from the same, while increasing the reliability and scalability of the Solana blockchain. 

Utilizing Filecoin makes Solana’s block history more accessible for users, explorers, indexers or developers. This is done by leveraging Filecoin’s decentralized storage capabilities. Solana’s objective is to achieve data redundancy, scalability and enhance its blockchain’s security, while boosting decentralization.

The collaboration between Solana and Filecoin is therefore a key milestone for SOL’s development and it shows how FIL can be used to create a resilient ecosystem for developer and users benefits. 

FIL price rallies in response to the Solana Filecoin integration

Filecoin price rallied 7% on Saturday, alongside the announcement of the Solana Filecoin integration. FIL price climbed to $6.23, yielding nearly 14% weekly gains for traders. FIL price could rally to its January 11 peak of $6.50 and march towards the 2024 high of $8.12.
