Here’s what’s happening in the InterPlanetary File System (opens new window) galaxy!
# Developing Consumer Decentralized Applications with Slate
Slate is an open-source version of file storage that allows users to upload their files to the Filecoin network, download other users' files, and ensure accessibility from anywhere on the web. It runs on Textile buckets to interact with IPFS so it can leverage content addressing and other features of that network. Thanks to Textile, Slate can offer 30GB of free storage to each user. But what can Slate be used for in consumer-based applications? Find out now! (opens new window)
