Proof of Existence allows users store an online distributed proof of existence for any document anonymously and securely on the Bitcoin blockchain. Documents themselves are not stored. Instead, Proof of Existence stores a cryptographic digest of each file along with the time of upload for verification purposes. This allows users to prove that they have certain information without having to reveal their data or themselves.
Proof of Existence provides decentralized proof that no third party or government can tamper with. Validation is provided through the Bitcoin blockchain, allowing users to access the cryptographic digest for a file even if the Proof of Existence site is damaged or down.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
