Sites to help Pin files to IPFS?

Is there a good site which helps you pin files rather than just having them cached?
How long do files remain cached usually, if you go offline?

I don’t kow any services like this yet. I think that filecoin will give incentive to that point resolution.

To fulfill that need you’ll have to build an ipfs-cluster by yourself or manage pinning through nodes with pubsub process. The most advance I know is Textile, with cafe nodes and more advance features.

As I didn’t really test them already, I let others to give their thoughts about

My company runs a service called Temporal ( that lets you upload files to our IPFS Cluster that runs in our datacenter , across a total of three IPFS nodes. Free accounts can store up to 3GB of data for 1 month, while paid accounts can store terabytes, upon terabytes of data up to 2 years.

As for how long data gets cached for, this entirely depends on the nodes you’re viewing your data on. Typically I believe the default is to purge cache after 12 hours.

Hey, postables, thanks! That is a good service. It is fast and the interface slick. I love the Lens IPFS search! First time using that, also fast. I joined :slight_smile:

Could you briefly summarize the purpose of RTradeCoin (RTC)?

On Temporal it’s just another method of paying for the service. Outside of Temporal it has a smart contract based staking system that generates RTC every block that passes on the ethereum mainnet. It’s in no way required to use the service however.

There is

Sorry to tell you, but all filecoin money were stolen years ago. It’s a scam.

Do you mean, no filecoin is ready to run?
I don’t really care as I am going to use libre currency blockchain that is available:
It provides a stable meta-economy system we would like to use for interplanetary p2p jukebox in developement (

To be honest, it is almost working, we still miss React Native Developer to make a full Dweb Service.

2+ years,. $257mln and still no anything working prototype. They started “early miner” program waiting list 1+ year ago - still nothing. Reading their website - nothing actually were done, only whitepaper was rewriten million of times, just because the initial idea was a fake out of thin air, briliant idea how to strip some cash.

For such a money and time the whole better IPFS + a lot of subservices can be developed. It’s a typical scam of early ICO’s.

Take a look other guys - they silently got the whole “filecoin” idea working, paid and even implemented as FileZilla connection protocol.

hello guys

what is the project ?

About duniter i follow that since 1 years now and i like this approach : free money.
