Welcome to IPFS Weekly 146: Wolfram, ChainSafe, Introduction to libp2p, and More

Here’s what’s happening in the InterPlanetary File System (opens new window) galaxy!

# Mint NFTs and Publish to IPFS From Wolfram

Jon Woodard, CEO of Wolfram Blockchain Labs (opens new window) (WBL), has worked to develop innovative smart contract solutions (opens new window), including the opportunities for collectible, credential, and programmatic NFTs. During the five years Woodard and WBL have worked on NFTs, they have emerged as one of the largest sectors of consumer adoption for smart contracts. WBL has just announced the Wolfram Language-Cardano (opens new window) blockchain integration. The integration will make its debut with a liveminting event happening on July 27, 2021. During the liveminting event, an NFT will be created in real time on the Cardano blockchain for the audience, providing participants with a live look at innovation in progress. Learn more about the liveminting event: “Stephen Wolfram’s Picks of Cellular Automata from the Computational Universe.” (opens new window)

# Introducing ChainSafe Storage (A Note from ChainSafe)

ChainSafe is proud to launch ChainSafe Storage (opens new window): Store files directly to the IPFS/Filecoin network. Storage is ChainSafe’s newest product which provides an intuitive front-end UI allowing devs to publicly pin and unpin files to IPFS, backed up to Filecoin. The service also exposes our APIs by providing API keys on demand, allowing anyone to build products connected to Filecoin and IPFS. We’re extremely excited to offer this product within the Filecoin and IPFS ecosystems. Our call to action for you: test it, build with it, explore with it. Discover the possibilities of building with Storage unlocks. To excite the imagination, here’s a reminder: our privacy-first, non-custodial file storage solution ChainSafe Files (opens new window) was built using Storage. If you want to get in touch with our Files/Storage developers, don’t forget to drop into our Files #support channel on Discord (opens new window) to ask questions. For more updates, make sure to follow ChainSafe’s Twitter (opens new window)!

This audience includes everyone from industry leaders, Protocol Labs partners, and investors to storage providers, developers, and users. Protocol Labs, Remote.

Senior Software Engineer (opens new window): Distributed systems engineering lies at the center of many projects at Protocol Labs. With IPFS, libp2p, Filecoin, and other related projects, we are laying the foundation for a more resilient, more secure, distributed version of the web. This requires rigorous engineering from protocol design through all the phases of implementation. We strike a balance between pragmatism (put it on a ship ⛴), deeply informed protocol design, and strict application of strong engineering principles. All of this happens in an environment defined by curiosity, passion, and a love for open source. Protocol Labs, Remote.

Fullstack Engineer (opens new window): Textile's web products and services are written primarily in Golang and TypeScript, and communicate with Textile's core gRPC services.
