QuickNode's decentralized storage solution allows you to upload, store, manage, and retrieve data with IPFS.

Introducing QuickNode IPFS: The Future of Decentralized Data Storage

We're excited to announce the arrival of InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) support on QuickNode, a significant milestone in our journey towards creating a more secure, efficient, and decentralized internet. IPFS, an open-source, peer-to-peer network protocol, decentralizes data storage across multiple nodes, fostering a resilient and secure internet ecosystem. With the seamless integration of IPFS into our platform, we're extending unprecedented functionality, flexibility, and access to the decentralized network for blockchain developers.

Get started with IPFS!

Seamless Integration: QuickNode & IPFS

QuickNode's latest product integration allows developers to quickly and easily leverage the benefits of IPFS. Our services enable you to upload, store, manage, and retrieve data on IPFS effortlessly. We provide an easy-to-use interface and tools for uncomplicated data pinning and storage.

You can pin and store your files securely via our customer dashboard or API. We're also introducing a drag-and-drop feature, which allows immediate pinning of files to IPFS right from the QuickNode dashboard, making them accessible from any IPFS gateway. Your data is not just secure, but also automatically distributed and replicated across global data centers for redundancy and minimal latency, ensuring it’s always available and quick to load.

QuickNode IPFS Features

QuickNode users can now upload, store, manage, and retrieve data on IPFS through our pinning services and dedicated gateways.

Dedicated Gateways

QuickNode IPFS gateways provide a read-only, HTTP-accessible interface to IPFS. This doesn't require users to download any special software or give up any storage space on their devices.

Whether you need to ensure reliable access to your NFTs or want to provide a seamless gaming experience, QuickNode's dedicated IPFS gateways can help. Our dedicated gateways deliver improved performance and customization capabilities to meet your specific needs. You can even choose to make your gateway public or private based on your requirements.

Pinning Services

Pinning on IPFS refers to the act of ensuring a specific file is always available and stored on a particular node in the network. QuickNode takes the hassle out of running your own IPFS nodes, letting you pin files and access content via our dedicated gateways.

Our pinning solution offers a user-friendly interface and tools for uploading, managing, and accessing files. Plus, we provide increased reliability and performance, ensuring your pinned files are always available, accessible, and quick to load.


With QuickNode's IPFS REST API, you can connect seamlessly to IPFS and utilize the following APIs:

  • Gateway: Create and manage gateway from the IPFS network through the gateway API.
  • Pinning: Pin, view and manage pinned content to ensure its availability.
  • Account: Fetch account usage information, including bandwidth and storage metrics.
