FileCoin uses Proof-of-Replication, or PoRep, to solve problems within its network. In the Proof of Replication article, you can find more consensus algorithms such as PoRep and PoS (Proof-of-Storage) used to verify that the disk space provider actually stores resources.

FileCoin based on IPFS has no exact log to be released. The white paper Proof of Replication is marked as WIP (Work In Process), and some parts have not been completed, so it will take a long time to wait for this technology to mature.
