Distributed Web Gateway Terms of Use

Cloudflare, Inc. is on a mission to help build a better Internet. In furtherance of our mission, we have made it possible for Internet users to access and use the Interplanetary File System (IPFS) infrastructure and the Ethereum blockchain through our gateway to the decentralized internet (Distributed Web Gateway) without the need of downloading software. We have also made it possible to make content from the IPFS infrastructure and the Ethereum blockchain available via custom human readable domain names utilizing HTTPS.
