As you may have noticed I'm sharing some stuff that is not directly related to Cloud. After purchasing a .crypto domain I did some more research into the workings of these domains.

Most notable is the fact, that they are using the IPFS-Protocol. IPFS stands for InterPlanetery File System.

According to the official IPFS-Website:

The web of tomorrow needs IPFS today. IPFS aims to surpass HTTP in order to build a better web for all of us.

Today's web is inefficient and expensive

HTTP downloads files from one computer at a time instead of getting pieces from multiple computers simultaneously. Peer-to-peer IPFS saves big on bandwidth - up to 60% for video - making it possible to efficiently distribute high volumes of data without duplication.

Today's web can't preserve humanity's history

The average lifespan of a web page is 100 days before it's gone forever. It's not good enough for the primary medium of our era to be this fragile. IPFS keeps every version of your files and makes it simple to set up resilient networks for mirroring data.

Today's web is centralized, limiting opportunity

The Internet has turbocharged innovation by being one of the great equalizers in human history - but increasing consolidation of control threatens that progress. IPFS stays true to the original vision of an open, flat web by delivering technology to make that vision a reality.

Today's web is addicted to the backbone

IPFS powers the creation of diversely resilient networks that enable persistent availability - with or without Internet backbone connectivity. This means better connectivity for the developing world, during natural disasters, or just when you're on flaky coffee shop wi-fi.
