We have big hopes for IPFS, Filecoin, and decentralized file storage in general. While fixing a brittle internet isn’t our core mission, we do believe that decentralized storage of personal data is a key ingredient to a future where we fully own and control our digital selves. IPFS is a great solution for personal data given that most of your data is only created (not modified) and because most of that data is only important to you (so proximity matters). Like most networks, IPFS grows in value, staying power, and in many ways, utility, by adding more nodes to the network. We plan to bring 1,000,000 more IPFS peers online, so let’s talk how we will do it.
