IPFS is a global, versioned, peer-to-peer filesystem.
It combines good ideas from Git, BitTorrent, Kademlia, SFS, and the Web. It
is like a single bittorrent swarm, exchanging git objects. IPFS provides an
interface as simple as the HTTP web, but with permanence built in. You can
also mount the world at /ipfs.
