Frequently asked questions

Swarm is a distributed storage platform and content distribution service that is part of the Ethereum web3 stack. It aims to provide a decentralized and redundant store for dapp code, user data, blockchain, and state data. Swarm offers various base layer services for web3, including node-to-node messaging, media streaming, decentralized database services, and scalable state-channel infrastructure for decentralized service economies. It is fault-tolerant, censorship-resistant, and DDoS resistant. Swarm is designed to integrate with the Ethereum blockchain for domain name resolution, service payments, and content availability insurance. It operates on a peer-to-peer storage network with a built-in incentive system for resource trading and payment.

Swarm provides various base layer services for web3, including distributed storage, content distribution, node-to-node messaging, media streaming, decentralized database services, and scalable state-channel infrastructure. It aims to provide a decentralized and redundant store for dapp code, user data, blockchain, and state data. Swarm is fault-tolerant, censorship-resistant, DDoS resistant, and ensures zero downtime. It is built to deeply integrate with the Ethereum blockchain and uses a built-in incentive system for economic viability.

Swarm ensures fault tolerance through cross-node replication and erasure coding. Cross-node replication ensures that data is replicated across multiple nodes, so even if one node goes offline, the data remains available. Erasure coding breaks data into smaller fragments and distributes them across multiple nodes, allowing for data recovery even if some nodes become unavailable. This redundancy ensures continued data delivery and zero downtime. Additionally, Swarm is designed to be DDoS resistant by leveraging decentralized peer-to-peer networks that mitigate DDoS attack vectors.

Yes, data stored on Swarm is vulnerable to censorship. Swarm is designed to be a decentralized storage platform, meaning that data is stored throughout the network without vulnerable central hubs. This decentralization helps to mitigate censorship attempts by distributing the data across multiple nodes.

Swarm mitigates DDoS attacks by utilizing a decentralized peer-to-peer network. This network helps to distribute the attack traffic across multiple nodes, making it difficult for attackers to overwhelm any single node. Additionally, Swarm's redundancy ensures that data delivery continues even if individual nodes go offline. This fault tolerance helps to prevent downtime during DDoS attacks. Furthermore, Swarm's built-in incentive system ensures the network's economic viability, making it self-sustaining.

The incentive system in Swarm is a built-in feature that ensures the network's economic viability. It uses peer-to-peer accounting and allows trading resources for payment. This incentive system is designed to make the peer-to-peer storage network self-sustaining.

Swarm integrates with Ethereum by serving as a distributed storage platform and content distribution service within the Ethereum web3 stack. It provides a decentralized and redundant store for dapp code, user data, blockchain, and state data. Swarm is designed to deeply integrate with the devp2p multiprotocol network layer of Ethereum and the Ethereum blockchain for domain name resolution, service payments, and content availability insurance. It utilizes a peer-to-peer storage network, which is self-sustaining through a built-in incentive system that allows trading resources for payment. Swarm also offers fault tolerance, DDoS resistance, and censorship resistance through its decentralized and redundant nature.
