Beyond Swapping Bits: Accelerating file-sharing in P2P networks and IPFS with Bitswap
Bitswap is a Block Exchange protocol designed for P2P Content Addressable Networks. It leverages merkle-linked graphs in order to parallelize retrieval and verify content integrity. Bitswap is being used in the InterPlanetary File System architecture as the main content exchange protocol, as well as in the Filecoin network as part of the block synchronisation protocol. In this work, we present Bitswap’s baseline design and then apply several new extensions with the goal of improving Bitswap’s efficiency and efficacy and minimizing its bandwidth footprint.
