IpfsCloud Vision: Changing how the Internet works.

What does it mean to Users and Developers?

vision for IpfsCloud

Its Aim

Problems today

  • Censorship, privacy breach, and data monitoring are a big problem with applications.
  • Users are losing control over their data.
  • It is a cumbersome task for developers to build applications which solve this problem.


  • Allows users to gain control over their data.
  • Allows developers to create applications which are user- friendly(applications on this model inherently free from Censorship, privacy breach, and data monitoring issues)
  • Reduces cost to develop an application for developers.
  • Scales with users, making the applications cheaper and efficient as more users join.

Use cases

What are the Challenges?

  1. Lack of Awareness among users: Users today, are trapped inside the comfortable and seamless ecosystem that Giants like Google, Facebook etc. have created. Users need to be made aware more about this.
  2. General Acceptance: Like the internet took time to become what it is today, decentralization too, has a long way to go. But today we are connected to each other more than ever. Thus, if we have a better platform, we can accelerate its acceptance.
