Instructions

You can join a collaborative cluster by running a “follower” peer (a peer without write access to the Cluster’s pinset). In order to run a follower peer:

Note that ipfs-cluster-follow will try to pin the full archive, so you will need at least as much space available in your node as the Size requirement indicates for each archive.

Follow as many collaborative clusters as you want, the different follower peers will run in parallel!
