Web 3 champions the ethos of decentralization, wherein users own their data, and services are trustless and permissionless. But ironically, much of Web 3 is built on centralized infrastructure.


Today we have David Choi, Product Manager at Protocol Labs, to share with us how Web3Storage and NFT.Storage allows developers to build on Filecoin to achieve higher levels of decentralization, amongst other benefits over centralized providers.
