Okay, those are really good questions. So, our first large-scale use of IPFS was in last August and it was as a cybersecurity solution. Because last August, after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan, we’ve seen in a single day 23 times more DDoS distributed in our service compared to the previous peak, in terms of volumes of DDoS attacked our societal infrastructure, including governmental websites. And so, with the Web2 stuff, you know, look really good and smooth and so on, but on this huge amount of DDoS, it begins to fall down. And our ministry’s website, which is based on IPFS, can still be accessed on ipns://moda.gov.tw without even suffering a second of slowdown.
