yes, you can store a file in january in china and go offline, and
download the file in march in USA
the file storage is better , because it is decentral, no risk of data
lost and no crash.

no it is not encypted, you just have an operation, which is 7-2 = 5
so if you have the 5, you need the operation and the value,
but the operation can be as well 3+2=5, so what will you do with the 5?
You can implement 2 files into one block. and without the off-torrent
you cannot resore the file.
no one first can say, you restored it, and second, no one can say,
which operation you do with 5.

it is not forbidden to route random data, otherwise https to google
would be forbidden.

there is no central server, yes, the thing you need and have to look
for is the off-url
which is just a http with numbers. Numbers are not forbidden.
