Bitknowledge Archives is a digital archival system that uses open source software and distributed physical storage. Archived records are inscribed onto distributed storage and can be accessed using virtual or physical inscription panels.
You can use the search function on the inscription panels page to find the virtual inscription panel associated with your physical panel.
Bitknowledge uses the IPFS protocol to ensure that any record created cannot be altered once published, thereby providing an immutable and tamper-proof repository for digital records.
This approach is also scalable in that anyone from anywhere in the world with an internet connection can add hardware to expand the storage pool available for your records.
Using the open and distributed IPFS protocol means that no single entity has exclusive control over any part of the system and therefore guarantees that there is no vendor lock-in. It also ensures that all records can remain publicly available and unalterable for as long as hardware is provided. This approach ensures complete transparency, security and accessibility for your records for as long as they are needed.
This service has been designed to create records for physical objects however it can be used for any information of potential value.
Inscribing information on open and immutable distributed storage offers a solution to the need for tamper proof digital permanence.
