I’m trying to understand the basic idea. I still have no clue how ipfs node going to replace storage hosting.
- If I run an
ipfs daemonto broadcast my file, will it download/serve files from other nodes too?
- It mention about CDN. Is it possible for a node to become so huge because of serving files across the globe? if not then a request to get a content still need to hop across continent am I right?
- How about the high availability? I saw a topic about a file get garbage collected if
ipfs daemonis not running.
- How a node being incentiviced for running CPU and storage or is it a volunteer basis?
If it just like BitTorrent, then no one interested to serve my public file until I rent some storage hosting in a few locations. So it seems like back to basic.
