In the patent document, US 10,803,049 B2 gives details of the process that time:beat follows to time-stamp a document. The patent is valid for 14 years from the date of issue and is valid until November 28, 2034.
In line with Enigio’s vision of creating a digital world founded on truth, time:beat is an innovative service that acts as a modern digital notary. time:beat uses linked timestamping and blockchain technology to provide clients with secure timestamps. With time:beat, digital data such as documents, photos, streamed media and transactions can be indisputably linked to a certain time and thus later proven it existed at that time and that it has not been changed since. The edge with time:beat over traditional timestamps is that it does not expire, and it can also be used to prove that digital data was not created before a certain time, not only that it was not changed after a certain time.
The technology used is fool-proof and cannot be manipulated or altered. The product has already received patents from Sweden and now the US patent adds to the strength and originality of the product.
