Too Long; Didn't Read

In this first post of the hands-on series, we will understand the basic concepts of IPLD followed by coding in Golang to persist key-value-values. We will talk more about how IPFS uses Multihash, which allows us to define CIDs that are self-defining. This CID is what IPFS will search for when we try to get back the image when we add it back to the web. In order to solve this problem we pass the Raw image data into a SHA256 hash function and get the unique Digest. This makes IPFS a Self-certifying File System.
