Where is the visual?

Off blockchain

Where is it stored?

The visual is hosted on several computers via IPFS protocol.

What exactly is IPFS?

IPFS is a distributed system for storing and accessing files or assets. This is not a blockchain. You can see more information here.

Does it guarantee the availability of the visual?

No. To be sure about the persistence of the data, you need someone to "pin" your data on IPFS nodes. In most cases, the NFT platform does it for you.

What if Flare Finance website is offline?

You keep your Artwork

Here are the elements you can retrieve

  • visual
  • creator
  • name
  • other data

Good points 👍

  • Flare Finance chose to put the visual, the creator, the name and the other data on a distributed & decentralized protocol: IPFS. Even if this is not the best practice to guarantee data availability, this is better than choosing private storage.
  • If Flare Finance dies & IPFS survives, you will be able to retrieve this data.

Bad points 👎

  • The data hosted on IPFS needs to be "pinned" to be available. If not, it can disappear at any time. We recommend using a more robust solution like Blockweave.
  • It would be appreciated if Flare Finance would create documentation (article or video) that explains how users can retrieve the Artwork outside the platform.
