Hi all! I created a demo app in Bubble that takes files from a database and stores them on the Internet Computer blockchain. Check it out: https://icme.bubbleapps.io/
The reason I chose this blockchain is because it’s relatively cheap for storage ($5/GB) and generally powerful. The Bubble app connects blockchain by using Bubble’s API Connector to call ICME’s API (I’m a cofounder of ICME). The editor is open so you can see how it works.
The primary benefit of storing files on blockchain and not on Bubble/AWS is to increase privacy: the app developer cannot see what files are saved on blockchain even though a user is using a Bubble frontend and workflow do to so. More about the benefits are here. For this, you’d just need to tweak the app so that it stores local files on chain without first storing on Bubble.
A second benefit is redundant file storage.
Do people want to see this as a bona fide plugin?
I’d love any feedback and questions - thank you!
