"IPFS is a decentralized network where users make files available among each other. If a website uses IPFS, it is served by a “swarm” of people, much like BitTorrent users do when a file is shared.
The advantage of this system is that websites can become completely
decentralized. If a website or other resource is hosted with IPFS, it
remains accessible as long as the computer of one user who “pinned” it
The advantages of IPFS are clear. It allows archivists, content
creators, researchers, and many others to distribute large volumes of
data over the Internet. It’s censorship resistant and not vulnerable to
regular hosting outages.
It’s also a perfect match for ‘pirate’ sites. The decentralized nature makes IPFS sites virtually impossible to shut down."
