AXEL Go is driven by two different decentralized technologies: the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) and blockchain. Working together, they are what make the platform so secure, private, and fast.
Unlike traditional web servers, IPFS uses distributed nodes throughout the world to deliver content. Instead of using location addresses, IPFS retrieves data via unique cryptographic hashes. Then, using the power of blockchain, content is timestamped and secured in a transparent and immutable way. Since the files themselves aren’t stored on the blockchain, users gain the security benefits without sacrificing privacy or speed.
The use of these exciting technologies means there is no one point of failure. Hackers can’t target a single group of servers and gain access to your files. Your shared content is split up and spread throughout the entire network. These distinct advantages are what make the AXEL Go app so revolutionary in the file-sharing world.
