It is a project that aims to mirror data in several places at once, making nodes for low-latency web access. It is a decentralized service that also aims for data preservation.
The website can be found here: ipfs.io
What are your thoughts? Will it falter, die, and fade into obscurity or could it be a serious technology for the internet in the future.
My concerns are the potential malicious uses of the service. If someone uploaded malware it'd be distributed to all the nodes and the users connected to the nodes. It'd infect fast and be hard to stop the replication of the malware across nodes.
