Forevermore your unique entry will be on the distributed ledger, and you need to place the certificate for your song, along with the file that you uploaded with no changes, in s safe location. If you change the name of the file or make any edit at all, it will no longer be linked to the certificate. playtreks will keep a copy on our servers.

How does this service work?
The way it works:
1) you have a playtreks account – It includes your identity including name, email, address, etc.
2) you upload a file – a music MP3, a document for lyrics, sheet music, etc.
3) the software calculates a unique “hash” of the file (an encrypted code)
4) The file is stored on the AWS Service cloud in a secure and private location.
5) The hash code is then recorded on the blockchain by performing a small transaction, this is the Time Stamp.
6) The blockchain is finalized once separate blockchain servers from around the world all agree and confirm they have recorded the transaction in the public distributed ledger, which can never be changed. (you can search for the transaction using a blockchain explorer and see when it was recorded)
7) The transaction is paired with your certificate and file in the playtreks cloud storage
8) The PDF certificate is generated, and you download it, print it (if desired), and save it along with the original file someplace safe.
