BTFS Key Gen
The btfs key gen command allows users to pin multiple files onto one node, by letting users generate a new keypair for each file to be pinned.
For example, we can generate 4 key pairs using ECDSA, RSA, and ed25519 algorithms:
We first upload four image files to BTFS:
We can then pin the antelopecanyon.jpg file hash to a keypair:
The output tells the user the antelopecanyon.jpg hashed file has been pinned to keypair name “pin1”, which has the hash value of QmfQZaw58AvSAf9Ych8Qtt9GHgq9ET9BsDT5SLuuMnVaZ7. Thus, visiting the URL https://gateway.btfssoter.io/btns/QmfQZaw58AvSAf9Ych8Qtt9GHgq9ET9BsDT5SLuuMnVaZ7will show:
Let us pin hunanmountain.jpg to our same BTFS node, but using a different keypair. We will use “pin2”:
Likewise, the URL https://gateway.btfssoter.io/btns/QmTwunwcRUjAKSp9gNB79ZZyJ81eiTrWYb3epqbFQpvm5Pwill show:
Thus, we are able to pin multiple files to our BTFS node, at least up to the maximum storage capacity set in the configuration file.
