InterPlanetary File System (IPFS)

So, I recently learn about IPFS, this thing is interesting. The video above is a good primer on IPFS, and feel free to click through and read more about it, but the way I like to think about it is, it's like public Dropbox meets BitTorrent meets blockchain. Of course there are other interesting implementations for it like OrbitDB.

But, I'm just going to use it as my image host replacement. Imgur is sometimes blocked (depends on the ISP) in Indonesia, Imgbb is just meh. So we'll see how IPFS fare as public image host.

Sidebar: I'm currently helping out a couple of startups, so personal projects are going to be shelved, which means this blog is going to see a lot less posts. Even though I have a couple of posts lined up, I still need a bit of time to polish it up.
