Streams are virtually the collection of records & categories of an entity. You can also call it a place where you will keep your documents stored for an individuals or a business.

One account can have multiple streams for multiple purposes. For example, Alice can have 3 streams to have better arrangements of her records.

  • For her own self
  • For her business
  • For her husband

She can export the records stored in the streams with a click & everything will be exported in .zip file arranged by categories & sub-categories as chosen by her. This will help Alice storing the records in a very structured manner for the rest of her life without being worried about the corruptibility of the records as everything stored in RecordsKeeper are immutable due to Blockchain.

As mentioned above, records stored in the streams can not be deleted or modified. Any number of streams can be created in a RecordsKeeper blockchain, and each stream acts as an independent append-only collection of items. Each record in a stream has the following characteristics:

  • One or more publishers who have digitally signed that item.
  • An optional key for convenient later retrieval.
  • Some data, which can range from a small piece of text to many megabytes of raw binary.
  • A timestamp, which is taken from the header of the block in which the item is confirmed.

Behind the scenes, each record in a stream is represented by a blockchain transaction, but developers can read and write streams with no awareness of this underlying mechanism.

Records stored in RecordsKeeper can also be used to get the KYC done with service providers as they do not change with time & every sharing events are being stored in the Blockchain as a transaction. Making it easy for the service provider to verify the document’s originality & remain assured about the ownership.
