RaccoonIMG, the modular and decentralized image host that was built to last. In a world of political correctness and censorship, we realized that too many image hosts are a bunch of cowards. Others are cheapskates because of their utilization of expensive storage while promising their users a free service. And last but not least, some simply don't respect your privacy. We choose the name RaccoonIMG to mock those who are too scared to host the best memes.
Just like the raccoon, we don't provide a safe space for the eternally offended. If good memes offends you, then what are you doing online anyway.
RaccoonIMG is funded by a large stash of cryptocurrency (and memes) which is what pays for the image storage on block chain. Our centralized sites may come and go, or change over time but the images stays up no matter what happens. A few ads can be seen on the site, these are provided via referral links which pays us for refereed customers. We only apply ads from companies we use ourselves and know can be trusted.
We rely on a Christian foundation and strongly believe in free speech, including freedom from government tyranny for everyone.
RaccoonIMG is powered by servers bought from many different providers and served from everywhere in the world simultaneously, all content is backed up automatically and regularly which means if we where to be nuked off the internet, we'll be back soon again. All images are hosted on storage block chains such as Sia and StorJ, which means they're unaffected, even if this site goes down. Images are served from our own reverse proxies to the block chain, hosted at 99Stack Cloud.
RaccoonIMG is proud to use a wide variety of decentralized storage technologies, such as sia, Skynet, StorJ and IPFS. Every image we store is accessible through any portal and may be indexed by search engines outside of our own centralized sites. We use a s3-compatible front-end with external cache to speed up loading times. For additional security we also keep local copies of everything on our own low cost storage servers underground.
Our centralized front-end website utilizes Cloudflare for caching purposes only, to speed up loading times. We do not depend on any vendor lock-in feature provided by Cloudflare. At any given time, by the flip of a switch we're able to disconnect, and run everything on our own servers. If it comes down to that.
RaccoonIMG is a non political site, we're not loyal to any party or ideology.
