IPFS Weekly 94
by Jenn Turner on 2020-06-24
Welcome to IPFS Weekly #94
Here’s what’s happening in the InterPlanetary File System galaxy! 🚀
Watch videos from our June meetup now
The IPFS community gathered for a virtual meetup last week to celebrate progress made since the go-ipfs 0.5 launch and take a look at where the ecosystem is headed for the duration of 2020.
IPFS included in the foundation of blockchain, decentralization and DeFi
Project Lead Molly Mackinlay was recognized as a mover and shaker in the decentralization movement in a recent piece from Hacker Noon. In “A Brief Look At Those Who Laid The Foundation of Blockchain, Decentralization and DeFi” Mackinlay was noted to be “uber-talented and someone to watch for an idea of where this all is headed.”

You might have seen this post making the rounds, but we recently caught the video and really enjoyed this look at IPFS through a newcomer’s eyes. Check out Justin Poliachik’s post describing his discovery of IPFS, and then watch the video!
