Using hash addresses distributed across multiple nodes means the content is immutable yet permanently available. It doesn’t matter if a single node goes down because other nodes may instantly deliver a duplicate.
When users are retrieving data from centralized servers using HTTP, their service moves more slowly. Decentralized file sharing frees up bandwidth because the weight of files is distributed across many channels.
This also introduces resistance to censorship. Governments may order their nations’ internet service providers to block a particular website or service simply by blocking its IP address. If files or data stored across an entire network are encrypted, it is impossible to block access to it.
Due to these benefits and many more, a decentralized file sharing network based on blockchain supports the ongoing evolution of the internet to Web 3.0 and beyond.
