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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code 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.
