Does Textile Photos run an IPFS peer on every user’s mobile device? We get the question often, so we know the answer isn’t obvious. The answer is, yes. At Textile, we use IPFS because it is helping us get closer to our goal of helping people truly own their digital data. We believe that the stack of protocols available in IPFS can help all developers rethink the way they treat data on the web, and in particular, can help us use encryption, permissions, and decentralized sharing to put data ownership into the hands of people.
