An In-depth Comparison of all major Distributed/Decentralized Storage Platforms: IPFS, Swarm, Storj, MaidSafe, Sia.
One of the big challenges while working with distributed databases is to sync/replicate data between the peers. There are multiple things that make replication challenging in distributed systems: * Access Control: There should be a way to control the access to your data, so that you can decide which peer
Stream Multiplexing (often abbreviated as “stream muxing”) allows multiple independent logical streams to all share a common underlying transport medium. Libp2p applications often open many independent streams of communication between peers and may have several concurrent streams open at the same time with a given remote peer. Stream multiplexing allows
Here you can find the meanings of frequently used terms in p2p space. Circuit Relay A means of establishing communication between peers who are unable to communicate directly, with the assistance of a third peer willing and able to act as an intermediary. In many real-world peer-to-peer networks, direct communication
The go-ipfs config file is a JSON document located at $IPFS_PATH/config which is by default ~/.ipfs/config . It is read once at node instantiation, either for an offline command, or when starting the daemon. Commands that execute on a running daemon do not read the config file at
