Solana and Filecoin partner

In one of the groundbreaking developments this week, Filecoin, the decentralized data storage marketplace and crypto platform, announced it had integrated with Solana, the blockchain network home to a bustling token ecosystem.

Filecoin said in a statement that the collaboration will see Solana tap into Filecoin’s infrastructure to bolster the reliability and scalability of its network. The partnership comes a few days after Solana suffered an outage and is a major move that signals the blockchain platform’s focus on further traction. 

Tapping into Filecoin’s decentralized storage solutions makes Solana’s block history not just more accessible, but also readily usable for the community, including indexers, explorers and infrastructure providers.

By leveraging Filecoin’s decentralized storage capabilities, @solana can achieve data redundancy, scalability, and enhanced security while staying true to its decentralized ethos,” the Filecoin team said.

Solana price

Solana’s price rallied to highs of $118 despite the recent downtime and although its down 2.3% in the past 24 hours, its poised above the psychological $100. Analysts expect SOL to skyrocket in coming months alongside the broader altcoin market. Ethereum spot ETF approval in May could add to the tailwinds from Bitcoin’s halving to push the market higher.

Bitcoin Dogs’s presale enthralls crypto investors

Bitcoin Dogs is a new crypto project that’s currently storming through its presale, with over $1.6 million already raised less than 72 hours after the historic ICO launched.

As detailed in their whitepaper, Bitcoin Dogs is a gaming and NFT platform set to lead the next growth era for Bitcoin Ordinals. With the Bitcoin Layer-2 ecosystem thriving amid projects such as Stacks, Bitcoin Dogs is coming in to open the landscape further with gaming, NFTs and BRC-20 tokens.

$0DOG, the native Bitcoin Dogs token, is indeed the world’s first ICO on Bitcoin. The token will power the new project’s ecosystem, offering holders access to the 10K NFT Collection and Bitcoin Dogs Club. A blend of interactive gameplay, $0DOG rewards and fun all come to Bitcoin as the community shows their love for the beloved pets.

A total of 900 million $0DOG tokens are minted, with the presale offering 90% or 810 million of the total supply to early bird investors. To capture the current momentum and build into its potential, the Bitcoin Dogs team has outlined a 10-stage ICO that will run for 30 days only.

Is Bitcoin Dogs worth buying?

The crypto investment community that hailed projects like Axie Infinity, Tamagotchi and BAYC, is excited about Bitcoin Dogs. In particular, investors see $0DOG as standing out from the rest for its pioneering ICO on Bitcoin and the potential to drive the gaming ecosystem on the flagship blockchain network.

The outlook is more apparent given the prevailing market sentiment, with crypto on the cusp of a major rally led by Bitcoin. In this case, an early bet on $0DOG at the current presale values could be worth a huge return in coming months.
