Today we would like to announce our latest project and experiment with distributed file system called IPFS (InterPlanetary File System).
Serph is free image hosting service that allows you to upload any image file and share it across the globe. What makes Serph better is that all files that are uploaded here are transported to IPFS network. IPFS is a peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol to make the web faster, safer, and more open so each time you upload your image through Serph it is automatically shared across the IPFS network (including clouflare ipfs server).
Each time you put your file into IPFS, you will receive some kind cryptographic hash which represent its content. For example QmXugZB5a7kUXRFnxNWrhz4T4MABiJT3hAxXi4wrL7U8Wj is a file image that can accessed via
What you only need is the generated hash that we will give you when you upload new image to Serph and it will be available via other IPFS computers. You can check list of public gateway here.
We are going to make in depth article about IPFS and how we built Serph in the future. For now, you can play with Serph and share your images through IPFS easily. For apps developers, you can serve static images via Serph so no need to think about your storage and if you want to use Serph API, just let us know.
