When minting an NFT you usually can't store your media files directly on the blockchain, because the filesizes are too large. Instead the common practice is to upload the files to IPFS and then only store a reference to the file on the blockchain.

IPFS is peer-to-peer protocol designed for storing and sharing data in a decentralized manner. This means that the media files are not centrally stored on a singe server but instead are shared with many user-operators who hold a portion of the overall data.

All media files of your NFTs that are minted with CFactory will automatically uploaded and pinned to an IPFS node.
