Certify your documents
The original BTC blockchain notary service.

Instant, anonymous, distributed, and secure proof of existence for any digital document.



1. Registration

Poex stores a unique identifier generated from your document, linked to the time in which it was submitted.

This proof is anonymous, private, and stored in a decentralized system that can't be erased or modified by anyone.

Input a Document Hash

Imput the SHA256 checksum hexadecimal digest for your file here.

2. Payment

For the unique identifier to be recorded, we need to create a new transaction in the Bitcoin blockchain.

This certification service is based on the Bitcoin network.

To register the unique proof of your document, a transaction is created with the proof attached to it. For now, the fees for the transaction are to be paid in Bitcoin (BTC).

Submissions

Documents registered for certification, waiting for payments.

3. Validation

Once a transaction has been created, the unique identifier is stored securely in the blockchain.

Your document's existence is permanently validated by the blockchain even if this site is compromised or down.

The transaction can be consulted from any Bitcoin service.

Certifications

Documents confirmed in the blockchain.
