Storage

Storage provides the tools necessary to easily store and access files using decentralized storage systems like IPFS (Arweave and Filecoin are coming soon).

Files stored with this method are always:

  • Decentralized: There is no single authority that controls your files
  • Replicated: Your files exist in multiple different physical locations to ensure that they can't be erased
  • Censorship-Resistant: Files are immune to being censored or taken down

You can also opt into file Permanence - meaning that once you upload your files, they will be persisted forever.

Get started by installing the Storage SDK with the following command:

npm install @thirdweb-dev/storage

What can you do with Storage?

You can use storage for all your file storage needs, including the following:

  • NFT Media: Store your NFT media files using decentralized storage
  • On-chain Metadata: Store any on-chain metadata objects incluing contract metadata and other information
  • Permanent Files: Any files that need to be resistant to censorship can be uploaded to storage
