Blockchain is the driving force behind a myriad of decentralized applications (dapps) that promise to transform the Internet. The next generation Internet, or web3, introduces a "universal state layer" to store data in p2p networks. Swarm, a native layer of the Ethereum web3 stack, aims at providing redundant storage for dapp code, data, as well as, blockchain and state data. Based on a diploma verification dapp use case, we share insights on the role of redundancy strategies in designing a
