RavencoinIPFS - storage platform for the RVN community
A new IPFS storage platform for the RVN community, with drag and drop files, folders, and encryption. Every Ravencoin asset or transaction comes with the ability to attach [a special IPFS reference](https://medium.com/@tronblack/ravencoin-memos-84bdbd0dfe1c) to a file.
The file referenced by an IPFS hash can consist of anything — from an image or movie to contractual documentation linking the blockchain asset to legal rights or assets in the real world. If the file is pinned and available on an IPFS node, anyone can find it and view it on IPFS by referencing the hash.
But neither Ravencoin nor IPFS actually stores the file. While one or more nodes in the IPFS network might store it temporarily, there is no economic incentive for volunteer nodes to keep it accessible permanently. If you want to make sure your files will remain available to holders of your asset, you have to keep an IPFS node up yourself to ensure persistent, 24/7 access.
This is where RavencoinIPFS comes in. RavencoinIPFS is a simple but powerful file storage platform that we custom-made for the Ravencoin network. It allows you to persistently store, maintain and view IPFS hashes for use with any Ravencoin wallet to make assets.
You can also use it just to store files.
