Securely store and share large files across multiple peer-to-peer file sharing protocol

A peer-to-peer technique and trusted data store for sharing large files and removing the possibility of censorship or unilateral deletion. The combination of distributed computing and content-based addressing makes Interplanetary File Systems (IPFS) both highly-performant and reliably persistent. Address large amounts of data with IPFS and place the immutable IPFS hashes into a blockchain transaction to timestamp and secure your content without having to put the data on the chain itself.

Features

Simplified Sharing

Provides a clean and simple experience for securely uploading, retrieving and viewing files.


Censorship Resistant

Prevent the ability to unilaterally alter or delete with data sharding and peer-to-peer file storage techniques.

Retrieve What You Want

Identify pieces of an uploaded file and access only those pieces that are relevant for you.

How it works

IPFS nodes leverage a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol and present a decentralized, censorship resistant mechanism for storing large files and data structures off-chain. Shared and randomly disseminated upon upload, files can be referenced by one or more hashes rather than including them in their entirety on the chain. The uploader of a file has the autonomy to implement optional encryption techniques and/or to structure data within a configured directory.

IPFS, in a similar manner to blockchain, addresses the issue of central server data ownership by dispersing file contents across multiple nodes. This peer-to-peer file sharing technique removes the possibility of censorship or unilateral deletion, because no single party owns or controls the data once it has been uploaded to the network. 

In fact, if a user chooses to “pin” a file to one or more of their IPFS nodes, the file will always be available for themselves and the entirety of the network to retrieve. The act of pinning, while not strictly necessary, is a strategic tactic that permanently preserves a file so that the network does not run the risk of losing critical blocks as nodes go offline and/or perform database cleanups.
