This event is for developers, entrepreneurs and all enthusiasts of decentralized applications, blockchain and IPFS (Interplanetary File System). We will introduce IPFS, discuss how can IPFS enhance existing web applications and we will have open discussion.
The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a peer-to-peer dis- tributed file system that seeks to connect all computing de- vices with the same system of files. In some ways, IPFS is similar to the Web, but IPFS could be seen as a sin- gle BitTorrent swarm, exchanging objects within one Git repository. In other words, IPFS provides a high through- put content-addressed block storage model, with content- addressed hyper links. This forms a generalized Merkle DAG, a data structure upon which one can build versioned file systems, blockchains, and even a Permanent Web. IPFS combines a distributed hashtable, an incentivized block ex- change, and a self-certifying namespace. IPFS has no single point of failure, and nodes do not need to trust each other.
The goal is to put together a group of people who can built next-generation web applications based on IPFS and blockchain.
