Swarm: Distributed storage for Ethereum, the Turing-complete blockchain
The presentation is about the architecture and implementation of Swarm, a distributed storage platform running on top of Ethereum's p2p network layer. The purpose of Swarm is to store Ethereum's "public record" including the block chain in a distributed and sufficiently redundant fashion, but the more interesting use is to host Đapps (distributed web-applications). The presentation focuses on this use case. From the end user's perspective, Swarm is not that different from WWW, except that uploads are not to a specific server but "to Swarm". Questions of FUSE-based support are briefly discussed.
