Sorry, that's junk peddled by people who have no idea how often disks become "unhealthy" in the most spectacular way. Bitrot is real. Disks returning funky data is real. Sqlite does not even have online remote backup that would allow one to easily fix/tweak a portion of a database. When you start storing a few TB of data in every blob you are going to learn some very painful lessons that grey beards learned thirty years ago, except that you will learn them at a real misery producing scale.

Is it an efficient way of querying structured data that can easily be blown away/recreated? Absolutely. Storing bytestreams that should not change in SQLite? That's insanity. Edgy and hipster-esque insanity but insanity none the less.
