Decentralized Storage Made Simple

Build apps backed by Filecoin, no infrastructure required.

Why build on Web3.Storage?

Simple

Just download the library and start building! No infrastructure or DevOps required.

Open

Build applications that are open by design. All data stored is accessible on the public IPFS network - interoperable with the tools and services building on the decentralized web.

Provable Storage

Automatically replicate your data across a network of storage providers. Verify the integrity of your data, enabled by Filecoin’s cryptographic proof system.

Free

Store and retrieve data from Web3.Storage for free! See our About page for more details.

Decentralized Storage in 5 Minutes

Build applications with data persisted by Filecoin and available over IPFS. Get started in minutes with this simple interface.

Follow the Quickstart Guide
// Name the file `store.mjs` so you can use `import` with nodejs 
// Run `npm i web3.storage` to install this package
import { Web3Storage, getFilesFromPath } from 'web3.storage'

const token = process.env.API_TOKEN
const client = new Web3Storage({ token })

async function storeFiles () {
  const files = await getFilesFromPath('/path/to/file')
  const cid = await client.put(files)
  console.log(cid)
}

storeFiles()
// Now run it with 
// API_TOKEN=YOUR_TOKEN_HERE node ./store.mjs
