Holochain Forum

Large files

how would a large file be placed on chain? Are there size limits? For example, if a user wanted to upload a video, how would holochain handle this?

Hi @rlkel0 you’ll want to use IPFS or a similar technology for large files. * Holochain can just store the merkle root or IPFS url etc. + metadata about the file for validation logic.
