The classic version of our game (classic.etheroll.com) now exists on IPFS and is accessible today via our ENS at playetheroll.eth.link. This link will be accessible even in the event that our primary host services go down during maintenance/ddos attacks etc. Our users can continue to use the Etheroll front-end during times of such events.
InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a protocol and network designed to create a content-addressable, peer-to-peer method of storing and sharing hypermedia in a distributed file system. As opposed to a centrally located server IPFS is built around a decentralized system of user-operators who hold a portion of the overall data, creating a resilient system of file storage and sharing.
IPFS + ENS coupled with our Ethereum smart-contracts means our code is now virtually unstoppable as we continue to step towards a more decentralized future.
Note; this is an experimental feature which provides our users with redundancy which we hope to also roll out to our main Etheroll domain in the near future.
