Power your NFTs and file sharing with IPFS: the InterPlanetary File System! Now you can store and access data, websites, apps, and more with a decentralized peer-to-peer network built for Web3.
IPFS powers the distributed web. Today’s internet is inefficient, expensive, and highly centralized. This creates limits not only to performance but to the vision of a free and open web. IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) provides a peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol that’s making the web upgradeable, resilient, and more open than ever by surpassing HTTP. With IPFS, you can launch your file sharing, data storage, and NFT strategies to new worlds and beyond.
While IPFS isn’t a blockchain, it provides an essential link for web3-powered applications like non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Storing NFTs “on-chain” requires processing, verification, and replication across the blockchain – which can be expensive and unsustainable. Now, you can create freshly-minted NFT tokens for a wide range of unique digital assets and store them efficiently “off-chain” while linking transactions to blockchains like Ethereum.
IPFS is a decentralized file system ideal for storing data, websites, apps, and Web3 assets like NFTs off the blockchain.
