OrbitDB

OrbitDB is free and open-source serverless, distributed, peer-to-peer database for IPFS (Internet Planetary File System). The database is most commonly used for decentralized apps (dApps) and blockchain applications. With OrbitDB, IPFS is used for data storage, while IPFS Pubsub is used to automatically sync databases with peers across the network. Which makes OrbitDB an "eventually consistent database" that uses CRDTs for conflict-free database merges, suited for decentralization of data.
