How to Factomize a Kitten

By Tiana Laurence – CMO

Factomize Kitten 0

You do it. We do it. Everyone does it…
We are talking about looking at cute kitten pictures and videos on the internet.

Well, now you can go that extra step. You can now Factomize that little guy on the Blockchain. Yes, thats right! The kitty’s memory can be memorialized forever.

Factomizing kittens is now a thing.

After finding kitten picture you like, you will need to hash it. Hashing blows your kitty’s picture into a million billion pieces to generate a unique digital fingerprint. You will then store this fingerprint on the blockchain using Factom. This will allow you to protect your kittens identity and prove its existence using a timestamped digital fingerprint.

Here is a great site for hashing your kitty pictures: http://hash.online-convert.com/sha256-generator.

You can drag and drop your kitty into the box.

Proceed to push the button: BOOM! Kitten explosion!

Now all that is left of you little guy is this digital fingerprint.

(No actual kitties will ever be hurt in this process unless you are REALLY bad at following directions, in which case stay away from kittens).

Select and copy text.

I named my kitty “kitten 3” but it could be whatever.

Next paste your kitten fingerprint into the data box. Then hit “Submit”.

Congrats! Your precious little kitty is saved forever ever!

Don’t believe me? Ok fine, you can check. Here’s how.
Go to “Search” and type in the name of your kitten. Then hit “Search”.

Click on the hash returned by the search.
