BlockX inspired to solve the challenge for users to upload, verify & distribute media content.
What it does
Media Verification Technology - Hash Addressed Content, Verification Services & Public / Private Key Cryptography
How we built it
Bootstrap Front End Development - Built Landing Pages
Ethereum Blockchain Identity (uPort), IPFS Backend Storage, INFURA Web 3.0 js Provider, IPLD Modular Library & Parity Signer
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference.
These apps run on a custom built blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property.
IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) is a peer-to-peer distributed file system that seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files.
In some ways, IPFS is similar to the World Wide Web, but IPFS could be seen as a single BitTorrent swarm, exchanging objects within one Git repository. In other words, IPFS provides a high-throughput, content-addressed block storage model, with content-addressed hyperlinks. This forms a generalized Merkle directed acyclic graph (DAG).
IPFS combines a distributed hash table, an incentivized block exchange, and a self-certifying namespace. IPFS has no single point of failure, and nodes do not need to trust each other, except for every node they are connected to. Distributed Content Delivery saves bandwidth and prevents distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, a problem common with HTTP.
Challenges we ran into
Finding teammates to work with on Block X Technology. Integrating Web 3.0 technology.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Building the stack with innovation, utilizing encryption & decentralized blockchain technology.
The Block X Toolkit offers verification services & proof of ownership tools utilizing distributed blockchain technology & IPFS file storage. Cryptographic Security
Built with industry leading cryptographic security, each Block is fully encrypted, verified & recorded through decentralized consensus. Proof of Ownership
Verification as a service - Providing users tools to prove ownership with self sovereign identity.
What we learned
Creating the BlockX toolkit helps connect web 3.0 technology to use-cases for data encryption, data verification, distributed consensus & immutable records.
What's next for Block X
Building layers of functionality inside the toolkit to provide, encryption & verification services.
