I know some Hacker News users really like IPFS, but that seems bad advice. IPFS is a very young technology with practically no adoption, chances that some information stored in it will still be available in two or three decades are at least hard to estimate and probably slim.

Betting on something like archive.org or just printing it out and placing it in a bank vault or at a notary seems a much better idea. There are also companies and organization dedicated to long term storage, they are most likely a better choice, too. Even printing it out and placing it in a shoe box in the attic may have a better chance for still being around in a couple of decades, though it may be more likely to be discovered by accident than reliably retrieved at some point in time.
