01) IPFS


“HTTP is inefficient and expensive

HTTP downloads a file from a single computer at a time, instead of getting pieces from multiple computers simultaneously. With video delivery, a P2P approach could save 60% in bandwidth costs.

IPFS makes it possible to distribute high volumes of data with high efficiency. And zero duplication means savings in storage.

Humanity’s history is deleted daily

The average lifespan of a web page is 100 days. Remember GeoCities? The web doesn’t anymore. It’s not good enough for the primary medium of our era to be so fragile.

IPFS keeps every version of your files and makes it simple to set up resilient networks for mirroring of data.

The web’s centralization limits opportunity

The Internet has been one of the great equalizers in human history and a real accelerator of innovation. But the increasing consolidation of control is a threat to that.

IPFS remains true to the original vision of the open and flat web, but delivers the technology which makes that vision a reality.

Our apps are addicted to the backbone

Developing world. Offline. Natural disasters. Intermittent connections. All trivial compared to interplanetary networking. The networks we’re using are so 20th Century. We can do better.

IPFS powers the creation of diversely resilient networks which enable persistent availability with or without Internet backbone connectivity.

IPFS aims to replace HTTP and
build a better web for all of us.”

I’d be lying if I said I was clear, as to what this is all about…but, I stumbled across a few web pages, while searching for an old website online…and they were hosted on this service.

Thought I’d share it, to see if anyone has anything to say about this.

Apparently, this is peer to peer content hosting?
