Welcome to IPFS Weekly #103
Here’s what’s happening in the InterPlanetary File System galaxy! 🚀
Peergos wins EU Next Generation Internet grant
Many congratulations to the folks at Peergos for their recent award of a €200,000 grant by the Next Generation Internet Program for Open Internet Renovation (NGI-POINTER). They intend to use the opportunity to develop new and exciting features for Peergos that will see it evolve into a privacy-focused, decentralized social network. Excellent work, friends! 👏
Please upgrade go and go-libp2p immediately
🚨 Ring the alarm! 🚨 Users of go-libp2p need to:
upgrade their go installations to v1.14.7 and v1.13.15 —and— upgrade their go-libp2p-* dependencies to the latest released versions in order to secure their applications against an upstream security vulnerability.
New IPFS & Ethereum workshop this weekend!
The folks at ChainShot are hosting another workshop for those keen to learn more about IPFS and Ethereum. Led by Dan Nolan, the workshop is a weekend of fundamentals, concepts, and components, plus learning how to build core data structures.
Quote of the week
My computer is officially part of the infrastructure of the Inter-Planetary File System @IPFS: a fully functioning decentralized version of the Internet you know & love. I have never felt so scifi cypherpunk. #decentralization #IPFS pic.twitter.com/96m3eUuBNp— Vally Azar 🍄 (@VallyAzar) August 20, 2020
