web3.storage reviews and mentions
Which data is currently decentralized stored on IPFS?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/ipfs | 4 May 2023
Web3.Storage and other similar projects run a network of IPFS nodes that allow users to store whatever content they like, as a kind of competitor to Dropbox or Google Drive: this could be their personal content, or again, any application content, because some apps integrate directly with this service via their API
Holders! Please tell me how you use filecoin

Typically app developers would be the ones to build on Filecoin and you would choose an app like web3.storage to store your data. As a consumer you dont have to directly hold FIL but you benefit from the Filecoin ecosystem.

clone repos to your computer, dont just fork them
the fork disappears when the parent repository is taken down, clones stay on your machine
upload to IPFS. you can pin on IPFS for free with filecoin. Use filecoin nodes to pin on ipfs at https://web3.storage
How can I host my file in filecoin?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/filecoin | 14 Mar 2023
As for storing data on Filecoin directly, that would require making a deal with a Filecoin Storage Provider; doing so is currently a complex task but reading the documentation should get you somewhere. You will need a small amount of the FIL token to make the deal with an SP, who will then store your data. Keep in mind that something like web3.storage or Estuary.tech may be better for your needs if you need easy access to the files later; Filecoin can (currently) be thought of as closer to archival storage, but efforts are being made to make it more generally useful too.2 projects | reddit.com/r/filecoin | 14 Mar 2023
easiest is to use filecoin using some provider who has IPFS <-> Filecoin gateway for example web3.storage . Upload using IPFS and they will push it to filecoin.
New realtime database for IPFS
4 projects | reddit.com/r/ipfs | 7 Mar 2023
Doing a js-ipfs backend would be straightforward and wouldn't change the app API, so it totally makes sense to do that. I tend to see it as a both/and situtation, and the current core makes no assumptions about network either way. Adding web3.storage was just a ~200 loc React hook, so I bet the js-ipfs bridge would also be that easy.4 projects | reddit.com/r/ipfs | 7 Mar 2023
In my TodoMVC example I built up the local database which a bunch of data, enabled web3.storage replication, and then deleted my local IndexedDB. It was fun to watch the blocks fetch over the network but it's not optimzed yet (it doesn't know the second block's address til it reads it from the first's) but I can remove that bottleneck.
Let’s Build an Encrypted Image Uploader with IPFS, Lit Protocol, and Web3Auth
4 projects | dev.to | 19 Jan 2023
The last service we use is the one we know from the previous article, Web3Storage. It allows us to upload our encrypted files to the Filecoin network to access them via IPFS. The cool thing about this service: the accounts are user-owned and not app owned. While Web3Storage allows app-owned accounts, meaning the files will be managed by the app's creator, it also allows user-owned accounts that require the users to manage their uploads. It comes with a generous free tier, so the users can start uploading without paying anything.
I wish I could "seed" a server like a torrent, has there been any work to make this possible?

Tim Berners-Lee: ‘Web3 is not the web at all’

Of course there's no requirement to put all the data on the blockchain. Why would there be? I even consider torrent networks to be "web3" and they're not blockchains.
It is not prohibitively expensive to store data on a blockchain, however. Arweave and Filecoin are the largest storage-centric blockchains. They each have multiple exabytes of data stored on them. Currently, you can store on Filecoin for free: https://nft.storage/ as a promotional thing, but even for larger data stores (https://web3.storage/) it's $10 / month for 120GiB and 8 cents per GiB after that.
OpenSea itself is a marketplace with some centralized elements. That's fine. The core listing, selling and transfer logic is written as a series of smart contracts, however.
They also compete with other marketplaces, some which are fully decentralized. They do not control or own the important data, which is the NFT itself.
Some NFTs store all the metadata on chain, you can implement an NFT contract metadata as base64 encoded JSON (as you can see in a recent project https://etherscan.io/address/0x6f4388602c5dd6c593bf7c9cf3128..., plug in tokenId 2 into tokenURI to see). Some store them on IPFS with a hash based reference to the content. Some use centralized storage in a private database. All are valid use cases with varying applications. If you only want to own fully native-chain NFTs, feel free to filter based on that criteria.
