How easy is it for developers to upload data to Filecoin? As easy as copy and paste. However you do need an API key.
curl -L -X POST 'https://api.estuary.tech/content/add' -H 'Accept: application/json' -H 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY' -F 'data=@"/path/to/file"'
Do you have public domain data? Want to try it yourself? Estuary is free with an invite. Get an invite, and then you can get an API key.

Will Estuary ever charge money?
Estuary.tech is free while the service is in development. We will let the public know a year in advance before we charge money for anything you depend on. For now, there is no limit to uploads, but for each file there is a 32 GiB max size. Check out https://storage.market
to see how our price compares to other Web2 and Web3 products.
Is there an upload limit?
For now, there is no limit to uploads, but for each file there is a 32 GiB max size.
Does Estuary use Filecoin?
Yes, we store your data on Filecoin across 6 storage providers per file.
Will I be able to pay you for namespaced or dedicated infrastructure?
Yes, check out our roadmap
Why are you in alpha?
Waiting for the FVM
launch and Filecoin retrievals to work in the Filecoin Ecosystem. Because we aim to be a complete kitchen sink example of how to build a data onboarding service and platform on top of Filecoin, we're going to wait until we are feature complete to fully launch. This includes smaller features like Metamask authentication, and bigger features like provisioning our infrastructure for users who need dedicated resources. Check out our roadmap
Wait are you a pinning service or not?
Estuary.tech provides storage through immutable content address pinning
. This is just like any IPFS Node
, or popular services like Pinata
and Web3 Storage
Wait I need to prove that I used Filecoin for a grant I have, how do I do this with Estuary?
All deals have receipts before and after getting on chain. Every piece of data gets uploaded to Filecoin six times. See the example of a storage deal receipt
. Each Receipt has instructions of how to retrieve.
How is your uptime?
It needs improvement, check out BetterUptime
for more stats. We are doing better than 94% for most of our services.
Is Estuary open source?
Every single line, check out GitHub
. We also encourage you to run your own Estuary node and rename it to provide your own service.
Wait, I can run my own Estuary.tech?
Yes you just need to fork Estuary
and rename everything and you're good to go! You can do everything we can do.
