Factoid Price Monitoring Chain + BlockNotary App

Monitoring the Poloniex Exchange with Factom
The Factom team has created a new chain to monitor the Factoid price on Poloniex over time. It is now possible to write real-time trading information into the blockchain without causing bloat. Read more about this project on our sister blog. The code for this project can be found on our GitHub here.

Since all of the chart’s data has been retrieved from the Factom chain, it is historically verified. There is no need to worry about the data having been retroactively tampered with.

BlockNotary App
There is a new Factom integration in the BlockNotary app. It allows you to store the digital fingerprint of your photos on the blockchain. Think of it as a notary for the digital age. The app is as simple as clicking the “Share” button.

When you sign-up for the app you will get 3 tokens for free and you can use them to sign photos using Factom or Bitcoin. Testnet is always free. It’s available for download on the iTunes App Store. A demo video can be seen below.

Thanks for being an awesome and supportive community.

We would like to take a moment to discuss the problems with blockchain, which might seem odd as we are a blockchain company. In truth, it was the problems we saw in the early stages of blockchain technology that led us to create the Factom Network.
