Say you see a coin's promotional materials for an ICO and want to archive that as they change their specs on the fly, leading up to their mainnet release. How would someone go about this? Denarius has a great feature built into the wallet called Proof of Data which will hash the file. Along with this a user can upload that file directly to IPFS for archiving purposes. The POD then would act as showing that uploaded file is the same unchanged file. Lets begin with an example of how to do this. https://www.ghostbymcafee.com/ It's been a while since I have seen a countdown timer on a mainnet release, so I was curious what they are offering. Reading both PDF's being offered shows something isn't right. What are the odds they change this after they got everyones' money upfront before the timer counts down to release? Who knows, so lets archive now and find out later. https://www.ghostbymcafee.com/pdfs/Ghost_by_McAfee_Litepaper_v1.0.1.pdf First I download the Lite Paper. Then I go to the proof of data tab in the QT wallet, Select File, enter narration and then click Create Timestamp. On success we get a Denarius address as the POD file hash. D address: DHe18hHTHtQKbe5h8vTZ1xpPMZvx7zfYL8 tx hash: bc574da851172857377146c9cfcd4ebb5cb5ea1508e678bc67587a7cba42a585 Then go over to the Jupiter Tab and select the same file. I want to POD the IPFS upload as that timestamps when I archived this into IPFS itself. After paying a small fee we get all the rest of the information.

First you need the QT Wallet started and some Denarius coins. Proof of Data costs 0.001 D as of the writing of this guide. Proof of Data can give a hash against a file like an MD5 checksum. Except this checksum is a hash stored on the blockchain with a time and date, proving your data hasn't been altered. Lets start with an easy to find image. Carsen's github with the Denarius image located here. https://github.com/carsenk/denarius I am going to right click the Denarius logo and save to my hard drive as the example. Now open the QT Wallet to the Proof of Data tab. We want to select file, choose the image we just saved which is a long string of numbers.png. After selecting the file type in up to 24 Characters. I am going to use Denarius Logo. And then click Create Timestamp. Now we get the success message and also a Generated Timestamp Denarius Address. A transaction hash is generated after clicking OK. Input the generated address into the block explorer to see what we just did. https://www.coinexplorer.net/D/address/D9hq7DB78uh8SGmoiA3iCaqGcW3RcvmawA Now what can we do next? Lets put the same image in and Create Timestamp again. We get the same address again. https://www.coinexplorer.net/D/address/D9hq7DB78uh8SGmoiA3iCaqGcW3RcvmawA Thats the basics, and this works for more than just image files. I personally use PDF's and link the Denarius block explorer with PDF in emails so no one is changing files on me.
