IPFS is addressing the limitations of existing centralized data storing methods
IPFS (Inter Planetary File System) is a next-generation distributed data storage tech solution that overcomes the limitations of existing centralized data storage. It's a protocol for storing and sharing data in a distributed file system over the Internet.
https (Web2.0) : Existing centralized data storage mechanism
IPFS (Web3.0) : Decentralized data storage mechanism
Blockchain vs IPFS
NOT ALL DECENTRALIZED STORAGE TECHNOLOGIES ARE THE SAME!
Blockchain: Anyone can access the information, specialized in data forgery prevention
IPFS : Only user can access the data, specialized in data security
