A blockchain is a decentralised database which records information and transactions securely and transparently:

• Its security is based on cryptographic and economic mechanisms which guarantee the inalterability and inviolability of recorded data. The term “blockchain” comes from the fact that data is gathered and registered bloc after bloc.

• The register is hosted and managed by multiple users with neither intermediaries nor central control body. This decentralization allows a high resiliency of data and prevents anyone to modify or delete unilaterally the information.

• Transparency of the blockchain allows anyone to check publicly the validity of the chain.

When uploading a subtitle file or selling/buying a subtitle via Cinando, your transactions are registered in the blockchain in a similar way as in a public record. This record is final proof of the existence of the transactions.
