Reliable web hosting is often an expensive and even difficult to find service that many businesses and consumers spend billions of dollars on annually.
Uploading data to the IPFS network and then to the smoke blockchain, sounds complicated, but this is one of the dwindling ways to make sure it's very difficult to censor or remove, as long as the data is well seeded , and has nodes that are decentralized.
I've launched a beta service for the Steem/Smoke communities, so people who would like to backup their videos and music for use on the blockchain can do so. Our tiny service has grown over the past month, as of today we have servers totaling 2GBPS per second of data throughput. We are looking to add more in the future. For now our service accepts Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash.
Our paid users and kind donors from the community enable us to give these services to blockchain users from around the world. You can find more about our IPFS hosting service here.
In addition to this, we also developed our tooling for use within smoke, as it is only a matter of time before DAPP developers are needing this valuable hosting as they may want to use IPFS for content on the Smoke blockchain.
