IPFS problems: General confusion

Most IPFS open-source projects, libraries and apps (excluding Ethereum stuff) are things that rely heavily on dynamic data and temporary links. The most common projects you’ll see when following the IPFS communities are chat rooms and similar things. I’ve seen dozens of these chat-rooms. There’s also a famous IPFS-powered database. How can you do these things with content-addressing is a mistery. Of course they probably rely on IPNS or other external address system.

There’s also a bunch of “file-sharing” on IPFS. The kind of thing people use for temporary making a file available for a third-party. There’s image sharing on IPFS, pastebins on IPFS and so on. People don’t seem to share the preoccupation with broken links here.
