FilSwan as Fil Plus notary

The Data Dao Hackathon held by FilSwan in August this year attracted more Web3 developers to choose Filecoin as their preferred storage solution. And has been officially deployed on the Polygon mainnet, which will attract more applications in the Polygon ecosystem to use to store real data onto the Filecoin network.
