The Filecoin project aims to make it so people can control their own data, and decentralize major cloud services like Amazon and Cloudflare. The project launched in 2017 with lots of hype and it raised over $200 million in thirty minutes. As the hype gradually grew, on March 27, the Filecoin team announced that FIL miners and Livepeer miners could co-mine together. Filecoin mining has seen demand and just recently, the computer hardware giant based in Shenzhen, Xinyuan Technology Co. invested in filecoin miners.

Rephrasing Certain Crypto Terms to Keep the Chinese Government Happy

The regional reporter Priyeshu Garg detailed that Xinyuan Technology invested “580 million yuan, or just over $89 million.†Another report from AI Express details that the Shenzhen-based firm signed a sales contract on March 15, 2021. And according to the local reporter Colin Wu, otherwise known as ‘Wu Blockchain,’ Xinyuan Technology deliberately chose to not say certain cryptocurrency terms in its announcement.

When Wu mentioned the acquisition an individual said: “Weird, there’s no specific mention of ‘Filecoin.’ The article mentions ‘Distributed Storage Center Project.’

The reporter from China responded by saying:

Xinyuan Technology’s investment in filecoin miners stems from a partnership with a Jiangxi-based electronic company called Sesumg. According to Priyeshu Garg’s report “Sesumg [will] ship 500 units of computing and 100 units of storage equipment to the company.â€

Filecoin’s recent demand also derives from the recent announcement from Grayscale Investments when the firm announced the launch of five new trusts with filecoin (FIL) included. Since the Grayscale announcement, FIL market prices have increased a great deal.
