Hey! I am building an uber clone using blockchain. I am confused about where do I store the data of the drivers and riders and transaction information. IPFS or Ethereum? or do I store the IPFS URL on Ethereum? What would be the advantages of one over the other?

Hey guys I've created a social network called orbiting, my beta product is out and in version 2.0 I'm considering moving towards a decentralized network and building a layer 2 network on Ethereum, also looking to publish my own platform token, I'm considering building a secondary data storage system too, on lines of IPFS for optimum streaming service. So If anyone has any idea how can I take this ahead, or how can I pull this off. I am currently working solo on this project.

Regards
