Agorist.Market on IPFS


Agorist.Market is now on IPFS, Inter-Planetary File System, decentralized web at
ipfs.io/ipns/k2k4r8oa3hb92zb13abtp1cyuh9dnguz8hi8vx5fbldwo07sg8uh1t52/index.html

Do the following today, to assure access to Agorist.Market tomorrow, even when tyrants try to block it at the Domain Name Server system level (Android instructions below):

Brave desktop browser's IPFS integration in version 1.19 or later on a desktop, is largely dysfunctional and slow due to link handling issues. Also, it may redirect you to the dweb.link gateway which can be easily blocked at the DNS level. The other methods of browsing with IPFS below are superior.

 

For desktop browsers Firefox, Chrome, Brave Opera and Edge

a) Install IPFS Desktop (node) from ipfs.io on your PC. Start it and let the node run in the background to support the IPFS browser companion (see next step). Keeping the node on will help make the decentralized network stronger.

b) Install the IPFS Companion from docs.ipfs.io/install/ipfs-companion/ in your browser and activate it.

c) Browse to the IPNS address
ipfs.io/ipns/k2k4r8oa3hb92zb13abtp1cyuh9dnguz8hi8vx5fbldwo07sg8uh1t52/index.html

d) Verify the IPFS companion is on. If so, the address bar will display
http://k2k4r8oa3hb92zb13abtp1cyuh9dnguz8hi8vx5fbldwo07sg8uh1t52.ipns.localhost:8080/index.html

e) Security settings may need to be reduced for this mirror site to see all the content at the new IPNS address. There are no certificates to accompany IPFS mirror sites.

f) Bookmark this page as Agorist.Market for direct IPFS access.

g) Please visit all of the pages in the menu bar to seed them across the network and make them more unstoppable. Visiting more pages and content in the site helps even more.

h) Share this instruction and the one below to help them assure access to your site and other IPFS mirrors, even when tyrants try to interfere.

i) The IPFS companion may cause normal web browsing to be much slower. If so, it may be disabled when not needed.

j) Likewise, the IPFS Desktop may degrade your PC performance. If so, exit it and only use it when needed to accompany the IPFS browser companion.
