Filecoin Incentive Design Labs, or FIDL, is a team that nucleated from Protocol Labs to focus on incentivising positive contributions to the Filecoin network. Specifically, this means development of strategies, tooling and dashboards used by Storage Providers and Clients on Filecoin. In a crucial phase of its evolution, FIDL, sought to assemble a global team through effective contractor management, facing the need for a partner who could provide a broad spectrum of services specifically catered to the nuances of an early-stage company. 

Toku, with its comprehensive offerings in contractor management, customized legal agreements and payroll capabilities, emerged as the quintessential partner for FIDL.
