Mladen Todorovic, Senior Developer at the Thunder Core Team, talked about IPFS, the Interplanetary File System, and possible use cases for Thunder or Drupal.
IPFS is a protocol designed to create a permanent and decentralized method of storing and sharing files and brings multiple benefits. Since data is stored in distributed networks, portals don't have to be online all the time and data will always be fetched from the closest or fastest node available. This makes websites faster and more secure.
There are multiple use cases for Drupal and Thunder: For example, as a storage for uploaded files and the content itself, or for organizing source code.
