Hypercores mapped to IPLD

July 31, 17:20 - 17:50


The Hypercore data structure is built on top of a Merkle tree, and can be represented as a DAG - Directed Acyclic Graph. In this presentation, we will describe the data structure, and show how to construct a representation using the IPLD (Interplanetary Linked Data) library that is used by IPFS and Filecoin (also works standalone). Finally, we will show how to implement a storage provider that retrieves hypercore data from an IPLD-based datastore.
