How feasible would it currently be to stand up a more decentralized alternative to ipfs.pics? The driver would be that the site has poor up-time (at least anecdotally speaking based on when I try to use it and can’t). Because of the claims the site makes about images being hosted in the “IPFS cloud”, the poor up-time also doesn’t make for good feelings about IPFS’ reliability.
It seems like an alternative to the site running the IPFS node on the web server would be to use js-ipfs, which should save the server some bandwidth and ideally make it easier to keep a service running. Unless we wanted people’s images they’ve uploaded to immediately disappear once they close their browser I’m guessing there would still need to be another IPFS node requesting the images that have just been added to IPFS in order to make sure it’s available for some time.
Probably the main problem if I’m thinking about this right is decentralized tracking of image hashes and upvotes/downvotes for the random/featured/best pages.
