File storage

What file storage solution is Cardano invisioning to use? IPFS?

If you mean for the blockchain, itโ€™s a long time since I studied comp sci but my gut feeling is, this is not a good idea. For anything so highly distributed to be spread across decentralized storage would be a very complicated arrangement and Iโ€™d guess pretty inefficient. For off-chain data storage, on the other hand, using some kind of reference/pointer on the chain, IPFS might work well, Iโ€™d guess.
