Holochain Forum

How does IPFS fits into Holochain?

Do IPFS and Holochain complement each other? Could IPFS data be served through a Holochain happ like Holo is doing with Holochain itself? Could it replace the need of Filecoin or what Textile is doing?

The future holds a large ecosystem of open source projects; that I’m sure.

I’ll be curious to hear from someone more knowledgeable than me, but as far as I understand it, IPFS could be integrated into the functions of a hApp for large file storage, which is less practical with Holochain alone.
