«Using the blockchain as a way of recording and storing copyright information improves reliability and data protection,» say the authors of the project.

«At the time of Deposit an author’s work an «image» of the object – the so-called hash which is stored by all network participants. This makes it impossible to replace the submitted data, which guarantees the authenticity of information and copyright protection. Any falsification of information will become apparent to all», – explained the work of the platform to EDRID.
