IPFS Weekly 23
by Jenn Turner on 2018-12-18
Welcome to the last IPFS Weekly of 2018! 🎉
The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a new hypermedia distribution protocol, addressed by content and identity. IPFS enables the creation of completely distributed applications. It aims to make the web faster, safer, and more open. Since that’s a pretty large scope, we track development across the ecosystem in this weekly dispatch.
