The Case for Decentralized Storage
NFTs represent a new era in verifiable and trustless ownership, but what if that awesome 1/1 art piece you bought wasn’t using a decentralized persistent storage solution?
Well...the proof of your purchase doesn’t mean as much now does it if the art can simply be changed or moved somewhere else?
Of course NFTs can be more than just art, but NFTs without trustless storage fall into the same traps that web3 is aiming to solve.
