Quickly sharing files on desktop is hard

  • What should we use?
  • Email: size limit
  • Cloud: expensive, size limit, not private
  • File upload sites: Slow, ads, not private

What it does

  • Drag and drop files into a shared folder, simultaneously updates all peers

How we built it

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Integrating IPFS successfully into our app.

What we learned
