Here’s what’s happening in the InterPlanetary File System galaxy! 🚀
LikeCoin closes out the IPFS Case Study series
The first series of IPFS Case Studies is now complete, ending with a look into how LikeCoin decentralizes the standard of truth for online media content with IPFS. Based on the Cosmos SDK, LikeCoin uses IPFS and custom IPLD to achieve its vision.
Preparing for Filecoin Mainnet launch
Next week Filecoin takes off, and to celebrate the team has a week full of action-packed talks, workshops, and panels from the Web3 community to celebrate mainnet launch and chart the future of the Filecoin network.
🚨 Attention IPFS Desktop Windows users 🚨
If you are on Windows and stuck with IPFS Desktop older than v0.13.1, please install IPFS-Desktop-Setup-0.13.2.exe 1 manually.
We fixed autoupdate issues on Windows platform in v0.13.1, however older versions may still struggle to update. Manual update is a one-time fix: from now on, Windows updates will work as expected.
Paving the way for a new digital economy
Recently IPFS contributor Jessica Schilling was featured in Modern Consensus, a publication focused on blockchain and cryptocurrency. In her op-ed, she describes how IPFS aims to break the stranglehold of tech giants by decentralizing the internet.
