Browsing: Decentralized Storage

Blockchain is a great innovation, but this new technology has a direct cost that isn’t conducive to storing large things like pictures & videos. So what’s the solution to inherit all the unique properties of blockchains without storing data there directly? Using special cryptographic properties, it’s possible to split up large files into smaller chunks which can be individually encrypted and stored in other locations. The final piece is to store a unique identifier of the file structure in the blockchain for safekeeping. By using this linking technique, we get the anti-fragile properties of web3 without bloating the blockchain with unnecessary data. Check out our articles below for more information on decentralized storage projects.
