Data Model

Data representation format. Panta builds upon the IPFS network to save and share data between peers. Each chunk/file/object is called a "Blob."
IPFS supports "permanent" content because Blobs are "immutable" – they cannot be changed. A blob in IPFS is never modified and can only be deleted if everybody decides to delete it.
We use "Content IDs" or "CIDs" to uniquely identify each piece of content. A Content ID is a cryptographic digest of the content, so your peers cannot guess it.
