My name is Sean and I’m just learning about IPFS, Ethereum, and NFT based content today. I work as an audio engineer and composer for media and as NFT’s are starting to revolutionize the music industry I figured now is a great time to learn.
Exposition aside, here are my questions I’d love help on. Sorry if they’re basic!
I understand that because adding data to the Etherum blockchain is so expensive we need to use IPFS for content such as music or albums. When I upload a .WAV single or album to IPFS I would receive a hash specific to that content. Now, I read that when I upload that all duplicates would be removed to give a new hash. If someone were to take the album and upload it themselves would that remove the one I previously uploaded and create a new hash? I guess, tl;dr, what is the data protection through IPFS if someone halfway around the world chose to upload a copy of what you already uploaded. Would it be replaced?
When using IPFS for NFT content, say I wanted to sell 100 copies of a song or album as an NFT, maybe with a discount code or with a share of copyright to make it more unique. If I understand this right you would attach the hash to the NFT so the person could access/download it through whatever platform, like OpenSea or Bluebox. Would you use the same hash for each 100 or can you only attach the hash to one single NFT?
