I have been studying ipfs for a few days.. still a newbie.. its a amazing protocol. So is Swarm. Correct me, if I am wrong, but right now ipfs cant be used for long term storage or even as a backup. There are workarounds and external providers (eternum, sia), but the alternate options using centralized storage is much cheaper and reliable. Filecoin is supposed to be the incentivizing layer, but its not publicly developed and searching for its status didnt return anything.
I also learnt that they maybe releasing it to accredited investors only. (Reddit post on: Why is filecoin being released only to accredited investors?)
I am curious to know about the status of swarm?
Is there a document which provides the current capabilities (semi-technical) of swarm? is the incentivization protocols mentioned here: https://ethereum.stackexchange.com/a/10113/14143, implemented yet?
