IPFS Weekly 27

by Jenn Turner on 2019-01-29

Welcome to the IPFS Weekly. 👋

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.

Meet Paula de la Hoz

She is studying engineering and has a background in investigative journalism. Paula co-founded a privacy and digital rights awareness association called Interferencias. She is passionate about freedom of software and hardware, so her talk will be a fantastic one! Join the IPFS All Hands call next Monday, 5pm UTC.
