InterPlanetary File System (IPFS)

The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a peer-to-peer distributed file system that aims to make the internet more resilient and decentralized. It enables users to store and exchange files in a distributed manner, accessing data via content-based addressing rather than traditional location-based URLs.

IPFS seeks to improve data availability, eliminate reliance on central servers, and enable faster web content delivery.
