Perpera Web Client v0.1 has been released!
Perpera is a document audit protocol loosely based on the PeerAsset protocol. It allows for document notarization, document ownership transfers and querying of the revision history. It combines the immutability of a public blockchain and some elements of the git protocol. The web client is a simple to use frontend intended for mainstream use.
The web client for Perpera is released and live. You can now easily upload document hashes and share it via the blockchain. It is as simple as attaching a document and signing it with a private key. More updates and features will be coming in the next few months, so stay tuned.
My First Document on Perpera
Navigate to https://perpera.peercoin.net/
Click the large “plus” on the right side of the stream to start adding a document.
The name of your document will be previewed above the hash of the file. In order to finalize this, you must sign it with your private key (more on WIF format). If you don’t already have your private key, you can use “dumpprivkey” in the Peercoin client console to get your private key for the WIF field. Once you have put your private key in, a fee will be calculated and you can finalize registration. Please wait at least one block before the registration is confirmed on the chain.
Searching for Documents
To find something on Perpera, enter the hash into the ‘document tag’ field. For example, we can use 12738874b06cee29585c536f3c5e1d8a02b174febfaa862673b8494ab63a7bca to find a document @peerchemist uploaded previously. If we hit enter, we will be presented with the screen below.
From here you can see the revision history for the document, which network this document is on, when it was last updated, and then a list of actual revisions and historical ones.
Stay tuned for more updates. You can follow development updates from the #development channel on our Discord or directly on the GitHubs.
