IPFS consists of several innovations in communication protocols and distributed systems that are combined to supply a filing system like no other. So to know the complete breadth and depth of what IPFS is trying to realize , it’s important to know the tech breakthroughs that make it possible.
IPFS aimed to exchange the great old HTTP and make the online faster, safer and more open. it’s decentralised, uses an identical peer-to-peer protocol to BitTorrent and versioning system to Git.
