<aside> ℹ️ IPFS is a decentralized web protocol for sharing data quickly and easily. Filecoin is built on top of IPFS and supports storing data long-term via on-chain deals. Together, they help us break free from centralized services while conveniently allowing us to enjoy the same luxuries of speed and guaranteed storage that centralized services would bring.
