The simplest way to send unlimited files around the world

Filenation lets you send files as a link to an email. The files cannot be censored as they are sent stored and transmitted decentralised because it uses the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS).

IPFS is a media distribution protocol, addressed by content and identities. IPFS enables the creation of completely distributed applications. It aims to make the web faster, safer, and more open.
