Data Storage


Right now Mintbase is paying the Arweave AR token behind the scenes, so every time you upload and image, movie, or token metadata, a little gets taken at a time. There is no file size limit on the Arweave side, we just need to figure out how to pass this cost to the users before we increase the limits as the larger the upload, the larger the cost. Now that we are launched we can start down this road and we'll let you know as soon as we figure it out.

Arweave Uploads

You are uploading your data to a hybrid, decentralized network that is daily new to this works so expect some failures. Before listing you item wait about 10 minutes (time to mine the data) and click the "Transaction Id" on the thing page if you want to confirm it was mined.

Public Data

All data uploaded to Web3.Storage is available to anyone who requests it using the correct ID. Do not store any private or sensitive information in an unencrypted form using Web3.Storage.

Permanent Data

Deleting files from the Web3.Storage site’s Files page will remove them from the file listing for your account, but that doesn’t prevent nodes on the decentralized storage network from retaining copies of the data indefinitely. Do not use Web3.Storage for data that may need to be permanently deleted in the future.
