How does it work?
The story of an Italian musician who used blockchain technology to ensure that her music will forever remain in her ownership recently emerged on Reddit. The user, going under the name of “Beginning Alps,” wrote on the platform about her idea to use IOTA to protect her work.
The Redditor went into detail regarding the process, explaining that it is actually very simple. All that people need to do is create a website that describes their product. After that, they can also post photos of the product, with a unique identification number.
After that, the photo is uploaded to IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) server, which is a protocol used for storing and sharing data in distributed file systems, across P2P networks. The system can identify each file contained within through content addressing. At the same time, it can connect all devices that exist on the network, and grant them access to the content.
The Redditor explains that users can create a message in addition to the photo, and that the message will act as the originality certificate for the product. Users also have to add links to the site and the photo they uploaded. After that, all that remains is for them to create an IOTA transaction, and insert the links to the photo in the project’s IOTA Explorer.
This is a very interesting use of IOTA and its Tangle, both of which have been praised by various industry insiders across the world.
