On Wednesday, 7th September we were delighted to host the Introduction to IPFS & Filecoin workshop for our Encode x ETHSafari Hackathon. This was the third event in the series, and its focus was on introducing the IPFS and Filecoin to the hackers and showing them how to use them for their projects.
Big thanks to Jenks Guo from Filecoin Foundation for holding the presentation!
