Anchoring on a blockchain is a simple and cheap way to notarize documents or timestamp data. By adding a hash on the blockchain, data becomes tamper-proof.

Integrating anchoring is relatively simple and should take between a couple of hours and a few days depending on the complexity of your application.

Live Contracts

A Live Contract is an agreement between organizations that contains both on-chain and off-chain instructions. Live Contracts enable cross-organizational workflows without the need for a central system or trusted party.
