What is the Move the Bytes Working Group?

Move the Bytes Working Group is a group dedicated to building a protocol that can replace Bitswap, the main data transfer protocol used by IPFS.

For more background on the motivations for replacing Bitswap, check out this talk from IPFS Camp 2022 which covers how Bitswap works and some of the challenges with it.
