The event chain is a miniature blockchain that is shared between parties involved in a process.
Each event is signed and that added referencing the previous event, forming a chain. All information of the system is derived from event chains.
The event chain is the only mutable component of Live Contacts in the fact that events may be added. Event chains SHOULD NOT be versioned.
The Live Contracts Event chain JSON schema URI that describes the JSON structure of the event chain.
A globally unique identifier for the event chain.
The event chain id MUST be calculated from public key used to sign the genesis event of the chain. The
idis a base58 encoded value from the following data structure:
Public key hash
Public key hash is first 20 bytes of SecureHash of public key bytes. Checksum is first 4 bytes of SecureHash of version, random and hash bytes. SecureHash is hash function
sha256(Blake2b(data)). The random number can be random number or generated from a nonce. This nonce might be the first 20 bytes of a
sha256hash of a string.
The array of events.
A projected set of identities that participate on the chain.
