The major drawback of a centralised system is using a shared database among the network users. If a server failed to operate, then the whole system will be affected. Leakage of sensitive data such as name of user, home address and contact number is a big issue faced by most networking sites. In this research, a blockchain-based image sharing web application will be developed which makes the process of exchanging image more secure and reliable. Upon launching the application, users are strongly encouraged to publish their original image. Users can view all the published images on news feed. Besides, users are allowed to update their profile by changing the avatar and description of user profile. Since all images are stored by using InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), hence a little capacity is needed to save the related Uniform Resource Locator (URL) for retrieval purpose.
