Decentralized Mirroring

IDA is a decentralized protocol that designed to facilitate the exchange of pieces of  a dataset into a network of peers. When a peer acquires it's first piece of data they can choose to become a partial mirror for the dataset. If a peer contacts them and needs a piece of data they have, they can choose to share it. This can happen simultaneously while the peer is still downloading the pieces of data they want from others.
