Cloudflare Disables Access to ‘Pirated’ Content on its IPFS Gateway
MARCH 24, 2023
The InterPlanetary File System, more broadly known as IPFS , has been around for a few years now. While the name may sound a little alien to the public at large, the peer-to-peer file storage network has a growing user base among the tech-savvy. In short, IPFS is a decentralized network where users make files available to each other. A website using IPFS is served by a “swarm” of users in much the same way BitTorrent users share content with each other.
