Where is the bunny picture?
Where is it stored?
The bunny picture 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 bunny picture?
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 Pancakeswap website is offline?
You keep your bunny
Here are the elements you can retrieve
- bunny picture
- bunny name
- other data
Good points 👍
- Pancakeswap chose to put the bunny name in token, on the blockchain. That ensures you own the data at any time.
- If Pancakeswap dies & Binance Smart Chain survives, you will be able to retrieve this data.
- Pancakeswap chose to put the bunny picture 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 Pancakeswap 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 Pancakeswap would create documentation (article or video) that explains how users can retrieve the bunny outside the platform.
