The decentralized metaverse will require the transferring of A LOT of data. Distributed, peer-to-peer file systems like IPFS could provide the backbone of the decentralized metaverse.
I talk with David Dias who is one of the developers of IPFS about how they’ve been able to transform your web browser into distributed file system node, how Filecoin could create an incentive mechanism to support a robust decentralized file system and mesh networks, why content deliver networks aren’t of much use if a region doesn’t have a viable ISP network, and the challenges of making a peer-to-peer file system more robust and reliable.
