Stampery, self-proclaimed "21st century notarization" provider, has launched a new API and an improved certification service: Stamp.io. The new services continue the company's mission to create immutable records of existence and integrity of documents through the use of blockchain technology. Stampery believes its tech-first approach to accountability, attribution, and auditability will change the evidentiary realm of the legal process.
The new API utilizes Ethereum blockchain and the Bitcoin blockchain to embed documents. Such use enables faster and more secure settlement. Further, the API-approach to create a reliable proof of existence and data integrity presents a massively scalable solution. Stampery explained that its new API is 100x more scalable than its previous solutions which should better support the billions of data transactions generated across the world every second.
Secondly, Stamp.io is the new domain for Stampery's improved certification service. The new service features an slick new interface. The goal of the interface is to create a seamless experience where anyone can authenticate any data. The new interface takes a large step towards this goal as it is cleaner and easier to use than previous Stampery certification services. To further simplify, Stampery dropped lesser used features (e.g. Dropbox, government ID verification, and BCC email stamping) from the Stamp.io launch. Finally, to facilitate its goal to democratize the generation of of immutable and verifiable records, Stampery offers Stamp.io for no cost.
Stampery launched itself into a legacy market that is reluctant to adopt technology-based alternatives to its traditional methods. Take a look at the comments that follow any story on the company, and the pushback is clear. However, Stampery is dedicated to replacing legacy notary and document certification methods with secure, scalable alternatives. Its new API and Stamp.io launch illustrate its steadfast dedication to upend some seemingly set in stone practices.
