Data Cloud

The Ignis Data Cloud is a decentralised data storage system.

In addition to keeping a record of Ignis transactions, the blockchain can also be used to store user-defined data. All forms of data can be uploaded to the Ignis blockchain, providing a secure (and, if desired, permanent) method of storing, retrieving and publishing information. Ignis Messaging makes use of this ability to embed data in the blockchain, and the Data Cloud can be seen as an extension of the Messaging system.

One of the most important features of data storage on the blockchain is that the Ignis chain is a permanent and immutable record that provides a tamper-proof time stamp. This allows for legal records (such as contracts) to be embedded in the blockchain, with absolute certainty about the time at which they were created.
