About the IPVM category

What Is An IPVM?

To date, IPFS has been a project focused on data. IPVM is the codename for an attempt to bring execution to IPFS. To this end, IPVM aims to be the easiest, fastest, most secure, and open way to run Wasm anywhere.

Another way to describe IPVM would be “an open, decentralized, and local-first competitor to AWS Lambda”.

The project leverages Wasm, content addressing, SPKI, and object capabilities to liberate computation from depending on specific prenegotiated services like the big cloud providers. Execution should scale flexibly from on-device by default all the way up to edge PoPs and data centers.
