The information is recorded in several indelible registers - this is the Blockchain principle.
The information is decentralized: it is recorded in more than 10,000 different registers. Today, it is almost impossible to hack into such a large number of different registers.
Only the fingerprint of the data is in the Blockchain, not the data itself to ensure confidentiality.
The Watch Certificate™ uses the Blockchain as proof of integrity, but never stores sensitive information in it.
This registration is perennial, it does not depend on our company, it is therefore directly verifiable by the owner via third-party sites. When the Watch Certificate™ is generated, its owner receives the proof of registration in the Blockchain as well as a link to verify it. This registration is totally independent of the watchcertificate.com website.
Blockchain - a technology for storing and transmitting information with a decentralized infrastructure.
An account book, or giant spreadsheet in which each interested party enters the data they want and to which everyone has access. For more information
Until today, no system could guarantee the history of a watch through time and its successive owners, information is lost over time.
But thanks to the emergence of the Blockchain it is now possible to create the "digital double" of each watch, which is totally secure, anonymous, and unalterable. It accurately displays the characteristics and history of the watch.
This is the guarantee that the system cannot experience censorship, breakdowns, fraud, or interference from a third party.
The technology behind Ethereum is in short similar to that used by Bitcoin: it consists of individual computers that "participate" in a single global public database, shared by all.
Ethereum is a proven and recognized technology based on the Blockchain that allows building and deploying decentralized applications.
