  • Editing a website that's hosted on IPFS
    1 project | reddit.com/r/ipfs | 21 May 2022
    Let's say I have a simple website with several pages of text uploaded to IPFS, and lets say I'm using FileCoin and/or web3.storage. The website has been working great for several months, but I notice a typo on one of the pages and want to edit it.

    If we talk strictly about technology then - You can create website with pictures, links and hashes and send it to distributed web using https://web3.storage , https://nft.storage , https://crust.network and several others then use one of gateways to access it or install go-ipfs client.
  • How to Deploy Your First Polygon NFT with an ERC-721 Solidity Smart Contract and Ankr

    We will now need to set the Token URI and can use web3.storage to store our image and data. This will be in the form of a URL to a JSON file. I’ve gone ahead and made an image with the tools we’ve used on this tutorial. Web3.storage is a tool that allows users to store their files on the Interplanetary File System (IPFS) by Protocol Labs.
  • Why companies move off Heroku (besides the cost)

    I upload static assets to IPFS and add those static links to my project instead of having an "assets" folder.

    IPFS is fast enough, I had these concerns too so I use a gateway for links as some of them cache files on their own CDN, for free.

    Yes, I use a pinning service, I was extremely hesitant as many of them are just SaaS hosting like Pinata is and charge by bandwidth used, but there are free ones like https://web3.storage which for some reason is combining Filecoin and IPFS together for each upload and liveness/pinning.

    Ironically, Pinata also acts as a gateway and can then be used for free if you want. But there are other gateways. Cloudfront has one but what it decides to cache is strange.

  • How To Mint NFTs in Solidity
    1 project | dev.to | 21 Apr 2022
    URI is the URL which points to JSON data containing name, description & image for this NFT. This JSON data is also known as "metadata" & it should at least have at least these 3 properties to correctly show the image in your wallet (Metamask or any other wallet). Also, I uploaded the JSON metadata file for this NFT on https://web3.storage which is a decentralized file system to store & host your uploaded files (see the video below for your "how to's"). You can choose a centralized service or even host it yourself but what's the point of all this if you want to use centralized servers in the end to host the metadata. Notice when looking at the JSON pasted, I used the image which seems to be coming from a web server & you're correct, which I can justify by saying, "Yeah... 👀" but you would want to host the image on it or any other IPFS 😬.
  • How do I store data on Filecoin?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/filecoin | 20 Apr 2022
    I guess this all depends on what sort of experience you want: I'd say if you're just noodling around as a dev web3.storage, chainsafe's storage app, and fleek might be the easiest (estuary is actually good here too if you want an invite!)

    i think web3.storage just batches content together and then runs an auction in the background to get 5 copies(?) on the network and then monitors the deal status.
  • How to turn my cards into NFTs

    You'll probably only keep the NFT (digital receipt) on the blockchain itself. To store the art of the digital card you might want to use decentralized storage: https://web3.storage/

    That logo was uploaded via the completely free (funded by the Filecoin foundation) web3.storage website, replicated to three locations, without ever touching Filecoin or IPFS (the site does all the work for you). There are many such sites that use Filecoin and IPFS as a backend without you ever knowing.
  • Pinning for up to 2.5 GB

    web3.storage which supports up to 31GiB files, if you don't want to depend on a intermediatory you can use crust.network where you can pin IPFS content in a decentralized way.
  • I created a decentralized storage service with React native,Web3.Storage and IPFS

    Hi, beacuse i use web3.storage. You can see it on this picture https://i.postimg.cc/sDbN7VtS/Immagine-2022-02-28-135811.png or just on web3 storage website

    web3.storage is a service (somewhat like pinata) provided by Protocol Labs, where you get 1TB of free storage which is pinned on IPFS and Filecoin (as cold storage). So Protocol Labs is providing a easy way to make your content available on IPFS and Filecoin. The only difference is that your file is also backed on Filecoin for around 6 months (which is minimum time on the network).
  • I created a decentralized storage service with Expo and Web3.Storage
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/reactnative | 28 Feb 2022
    Hi everyone, DArchive is a FREE decentralized storage service developed using Expo. It is based on the use of Web3.storage that allows to get data persisted by Filecoin and available over IPFS . Files are encrypted using the AES algorithm and their security is based on the selected account's password.
  • Documenting the crisis in Ukraine

    I'm currently using web3.storage which acts as the gateway and also uploads the files to the filecoin network. They were quick to implement, but there are others that do the same. Ideally, there is no middleman and we just upload to our own ipfs cluster and then use filecoin and similar solutions directly to backup the data too. Once the files are uploaded, including a metadata file the CID is index on the blockchain.
