Data Storage

All files, metadata and raw assets, published to VERIFY must be stored at a publicly accessible location (IPFS / ARWEAVE / S3). IPFS and ARWEAVE are recommended however it is ultimately up to the publisher.


All metadata is stored as utf-8 json.

Each node type has different metadata requirements. See the schema for each below:

Additional metadata can be added in the extendable manifest field.

Asset Data

Asset data is stored in a form that corresponds to the defined MIME type in the corresponding metadata file. Asset data can be encrypted but should be accessible from access method specified in the metadata file.

See licenses section for more information on methods of access and how licenses work in VERIFY.
