'Is possible'? Did you believe you couldn't connect to it or something? All it requires is clicking a link. The more alternative protocols are promoted, the more people know about them, and the more people will move to them. But in any case, I don't have IPFS myself, I have Zeronet, although I rarely use it. I have Tor as well, since although it has its issues, police investigations have found it is impossible to track people with it (see page 2).

I knew my Brave browser could do it, and WebTorrenting - but I just haven't. I also know that IPFS is amazeballs - but I haven't got a nice server to set up. I have dozens of hard drives and no home or connection for them. I am a digiatal horder - on a budget. It's all I can do to buy a new hard drive every couple or few months to collect all the interesting stuff I can before it's all censored. ZeroNet is also awesome, though, again I have yet to use it. It's one of my earlier posts in /s/DecentralizeAllThings/, and before I got addicted to SaidIt a year and a half ago I used to edit all sorts of stuff on Wikipedia, etc. The solutions were always heavily censored.

Compare my uncensored out of date articles on InfoGalactic to the Wikipedia ones, oddly they didn't censor WebTorrent (though I haven't checked for a while).

They wouldn't even let me mention Protocol Labs or their other projects. One of the best ways to do research is to dig through the history to find what's been removed, vet it, and add the good stuff.

Have you heard of Holochain? (Terrible choice for their name.) /s/DecentralizeAllThings/comments/827/decentralized_web_internet_alternative_holochain/ Makes me wonder if it was vaporware.

TOR might help - or it might be a trap. It's the Navy's baby. I'd like to see something like TOR crossed with torrenting so there's so much chaos no one could assemble and decipher it.

Also, back in the summer or fall of 2016, after a particular Corbett episode and in the midst of a lot of election censorship, I wanted to join ZeroNet. I signed up on NameCoin and asked for help. A guy gave me enough to set up a site, but I have yet to do it. I still have the NameCoin and I mean to either do it eventually or gift it forward to someone who can. I'd like to email him about it when it happens. I'd love to see SaidIt on ZeroNet somehow.
