Grab the latest QT wallet with IPFS built in and have 0.1 D or at least something small to pay the PoD fee. IPFS is free and can skip the PoD portion of this if you just want to upload files.

Lets pick a good file to Proof of Data against and then upload into IPFS.

Current Release: https://github.com/carsenk/denarius/releases/tag/v3.3.9.6
QT Wallet: https://github.com/carsenk/denarius/releases/download/v3.3.9.6/Denarius-v3.3.9.6-Win64.zip

Download a file, I am going to use the denarius logo from denarius.io and lets proof of data this and upload to IPFS as a great example of how powerful this is. Here's a link but just right click the image on the homepage and save to your hard drive.

Select your file, in this case select the image file we just downloaded.

Click Upload to IPFS (The Wallet will freeze while the upload is taking place)

After the upload you will get an IPFS Hash along with being able to click the link to see the file in your web browser.

Success, and currently there are file limits on uploading through the wallet. I was not able to upload the QT.zip yet.

Lets Proof of Data this file for good measure, so the original hash is located on the Denarius blockchain.

Go to Proof of Data tab in QT Wallet

Select our image, then put a simple narration in and then click Create Timestamp

This now gives us a D address where the hash matches the image. Now if we download the image we uploaded to IPFS we can verify the file against the blockchain by checking against PoD again.

Here is our set in the blockchain address based on the image file or can Click Check Transaction to get to your PoD transaction.
