Centralized Decentralization


I was trying to load the registry home and was wondering why it wouldn’t load. I looked into the code and apparently, while you store data on IPFS, the only way to access it is through connecting to a centralized Infura node. Do you folks really understand what we are trying to achieve in the decentralized tech space?

I must ask because this is odd when I myself have configured an IPFS node and it’s entirely bypassed to connect to a centralized IPFS gateway. Quite frankly, you might as well use AWS S3 if this is how you envision Civil to function.

In case you are wondering the reason why it wouldn’t load, it is because only my IPFS node can connect outside of TCP/443. If using IPFS as it is meant to work, it would have loaded just fine.

Thank you.
