File Storage

Storing data on a blockchain is expensive so developers usually store a pointer to the data, called a hash, on the blockchain.

Single-document upload

Smart contract stores one hash that points to a document on your file storage provider of choice.

Multiple-document upload

Smart contract stores several hashes that point to specific documents on your file storage provider of choice.

Multiple-document upload with folder

Smart contract stores one hash that points to a folder containing multiple documents.

File Storage Providers

DappStarter currently supports two decentralized file storage providers: InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) and Sia Skynet.
