Interested in putting your IPFS project on Filecoin?

Calling all builders! We’re looking for as many IPFS projects as possible to integrate with Filecoin by September 18. Protocol Labs can potentially offer grants, as well as support from our engineering team and community, for large projects that can hit this timeline. Check out how to deploy your app to the network and tools like Textile’s Powergate that makes integration much easier. Reach out to ipfs-to-filecoin-testnet@protocol.ai if you are interested or have any questions.
