Here’s the Deal

Because of IPFS' decentralized system, no one company is in control of the content you're served. Instead, it's up to the users to serve that content. This means that that single company can't censor or delete content that disagrees with its views, leading to less censorship and a more free content marketplace. See More
Because the IPFS system is decentralized, node based, and cryptographically hashed, you don't need to be connected to, or get your information from, a single server. As long as you're connected to the IPFS network, you can pull data from any other node. This means that even if someone scrubs Wikipedia of all references to bread, as long as one person adds the bread Wiki page to their node, you'll have access to it. See More
Due to the decentralized, peer-to-peer nature of IPFS, the Uncensorable Wiki is far more secure and harder to attack than the regular client-to-server Wikipedia is. In fact, the trigger was finally pulled on the creation of the Wiki in response to the Turkish government blocking Wikipedia in their country (See, "What Triggered This Announcement" here). See More
The UI for the Uncensorable Wiki is simplified from the normal version of Wikipedia, which is really saying something. For one, it's missing Wikipedia's image viewer. This means you won't be able to expand images, or even interact with them to begin with. Long strings of images are also sometimes organized in-line, meaning they'll take up a lot more vertical space than they would in a grid (example). It is also missing some features like the sidebar and the Contents box at the beginning of every article. See More
