We are working on our verification module. When it’s ready, it will be very easy to tell if a file is original or not. Until then, here’s the manual way to verify that an image created and authenticated by Inkan’s system has not been altered in any way, thus remaining untampered and original.
2. Upload the image file you want to verify.
3. Once uploaded, convert the image.
4. This Base64 hash is the one important for this verification method.
5. Go to the image Certificate of Authenticity emitted by Inkan, sent to the user’s email automatically after the image capture was made:
– If the Base64 code (hash) generated in the previous step is exactly the same as Inkan’s fingerprint, then the image is original and HASN’T been altered in any way.
– If it’s not the same, then the image is not original and HAS been modified in some way.
6. To be certain that the fingerprint provided by Inkan is the same that the one stored on the blockchain network, you can go directly to the transaction created when the image was captured.
To do so, copy the transaction hash provided in the Certificate of Authenticity…
…go to stellar.expert or any other Stellar blockchain explorer, paste the transaction hash in the search bar and press enter…
There you’ll find the fingerprint created by Inkan’s system to certify and authenticate the image. This should work everytime.
