IPFS Integration



Lotus supports making deals with data stored in IPFS, without having to re-import it into lotus.



To enable this integration, you need to have an IPFS daemon running in the background. Then, open up ~/.lotus/config.toml (or if you manually set LOTUS_PATH, look under that directory) and look for the Client field, and set UseIpfs to true.



[Client]
UseIpfs = true



After restarting the lotus daemon, you should be able to make deals with data in your IPFS node:



$ ipfs add -r SomeData
QmSomeData
$ ./lotus client deal QmSomeData t01000 0.0000000001 80000
