Bluzelle launches mainnet decentralized storage for NFT content

The NFT token you bought either points to a URL on the internet, or an IPFS hash. In most circumstances it references an IPFS gateway on the internet run by the startup you bought the NFT from.

Oh, and that URL is not the media. That URL is a JSON metadata file

“IPFS is a decentralized network. But it doesn’t assure decentralized storage. Your NFT sits only in one node. That node can go down. If users don’t want that risk, they should be using systems like Bluzelle, which can assure that their asset is safe in multiple places at once.”

“This is our first real use case. Kind of like ICOs were for Ethereum. We can focus on one area and really serve those customers. I think NFTs are going to expand and grow in new ways and so it will allow Bluzelle to develop new features to support it. ”
