The Interplanetary File System (IPFS) is a protocol and network designed to create a permanent, decentralized, and distributed file system. IPFS combines a distributed hash table, an incentivized block exchange, and a self-certifying namespace to link and transfer files around a network. IPFS has no single point of failure, and nodes are constantly replicating files to keep the system alive and fast.
The IPFS protocol is still in development, but there is already a working reference implementation. The go-ipfs implementation is written in the Go programming language, and is the most popular implementation of IPFS.
IPFS was originally designed by Juan Benet, and is now developed by a community of contributors. The IPFS protocol is specified in the IPFS Protocol Specification.
The Interplanetary File System is a new way to think about data storage and distribution. It is a global, decentralized file system that allows anyone to store and access data in a secure and efficient way.
The key idea behind IPFS is that data should be distributed, rather than centrally stored. This means that there is no single point of failure, and that data is always available, even if some nodes are offline.
IPFS is designed to work with any kind of data, including text, images, videos, and more. It is also designed to be scalable, so that it can handle large amounts of data.
