IPFS is a public, decentralized, p2p file system.
It is content-addressable, meaning a filename is just a hash of its content. Thereby, identical content is never duplicated, and the authenticity of the content at a certain name or address can easily be verified by hashing it again after downloading it from the p2p network.
We use IPFS to store Kredits data, like for example contributor profiles and contribution details. Check out these two documents for example:

- Contribution data: QmRKRZfNNBk8WH67VK6JWKeM9akgLGpnvDpgLn3T93jZLc
