Introducing IPFS

 The Interplanetary FileSystem (IPFS for short) is a protocol developed to allow the decentralized storage of data across a wide range of nodes. This technology was conceived as an extension of the same concept behind torrents. Individual nodes store encrypted files, and offer them up when any node in the network asks to download them. The files are stored using a hash-addressing system and are encrypted, which allows this network to act as a decentralized filesystem without compromising privacy.
Module 1: Introduction

This technology didn’t just pop up overnight! In this section we’ll cover the background of decentralized storage from torrents until now, and go through some basics terminology to get you up to speed.

Module 2: Technical Fundamentals

In this module, we cover how to set up your own IPFS node, and how to push and pull files from the network. We’ll also go over the addressing structure and get you caught up on the background of this technology.

Module 3: Applications

The real trick with any decentralized network is developing a proper incentive module. In this section we’ll cover the current projects in the space including FileCoin, Swarm, Storj, and Sia, and help you get started with payments for your storage use. We’ll also cover how to set up your node to start earning cryptocurrencies with your unused storage space.
