What keeps us from using IPFS (instead of http) as the default storage mechanism for profiles?
I can think of two problems off bat:
- End users would need to have access to an IPFS node that’s always online to guarantee that their profile data is always accessible.
- High latency compared to something like s3 + a global CDN. This could be solved through an http ipfs gateway with a warmed cache.
Are there other reasons in addition to these?
