Could you elaborate?

So if I can understand the DHT cloud storage you are working on denotes
users with a sha1 hash (or is it files too?)

PS git uses SHA-1 too for files

I am also working on distributed cloud storage but using http URIs as it
has the advantage of a large network effect.

Which systems have a path to interoperability, the cloud storage you
mention, the web based one I mention and ILP -- how does ILP leverage SHA-1?
