The aim of our project is to create an image/artwork sharing website similar to fanbox but completely decentralized through the usage of IPFS and Ethereum block chain. This allows creators to create and share their work without restrictions and remain anonymous. We also designed the feature that allows fans and supporters to support their favorite creator financially by tipping and sending them Ethereum, allowing creators to be self-sustainable on this platform.

How it's made

We first written our smart contract with Solidity, deployed it to the blockchain with Truffle and utilized Ganache as our Ethereum blockchain test network. After that, the hash of the images stored on IPFS will be saved on the blockchain. Our frontend is created with React and is linked to the backend with Node.js.
