NFT.Storage is a long-term storage service designed for off-chain NFT data like metadata, images, and other assets up to 31GiB in size per individual upload. Data is content addressed using IPFS, meaning the URI pointing to a piece of data
ipfs://… is completely unique to that data. IPFS URLs and CIDs can be used in NFTs and metadata to ensure the NFT forever actually refers to the intended data eliminating things like rug pulls, and making it trustlessly verifiable what content an NFT is associated with.
THIS SECTION IS UNDER DEVELOPMENT
We’re still working on this section. Feel free to dive into the docs, but keep in mind that things will likely change pretty often.
NFT.Storage stores many copies of uploaded data on the public IPFS network in two primary ways: in dedicated IPFS servers managed by NFT.Storage, and decentralized on Filecoin. Since IPFS is a standard used by many different storage services, it’s easy to redundantly store data uploaded to NFT.Storage on any other IPFS-compatible storage solution from pinning services, to your local IPFS node, to other storage networks like Arweave or Storj. And as time goes on, NFT.Storage will increasingly decentralize itself as a public good!
