Another potential catalyst
The weekend saw a "rate limit controversy" sparked by Twitter's decision to impose reading limits on users while citing "extreme levels of data scraping and system manipulation."
This might have brought attention back to decentralized data storage protocols such as Filecoin and The Graph, whose prices have been on the rise for the last 24 hours.
The Graph is an indexing protocol for querying data on networks. Anyone can build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, that applications can query using GraphQL to retrieve blockchain data.
Filecoin describes itself as an open-source and decentralized storage system. On the Filecoin platform, developers have the opportunity to create cloud file storage services.
