Uploading Files

Adding files to the Arweave network

You can add any type of content to Arweave. In this case we will put some text content into a .txt file called mytextfile.txt and put the text "ARWEAVE TEST - VERSION 1" in it. Make sure you first install arweave-deploy and load your Arweave wallet with AR tokens to be able to add files to the Arweave Network. You can buy AR in the following markets. In this specific case, the price to deploy a txt file was 0.000001824540 AR

echo "ARWEAVE TEST - VERSION 1" > mytextfile.txt

You can read the file's contents using the cat command:

cat mytextfile.txt

Upload mytextfile.txt to Arweave:

arweave deploy mytextfile.txt
