In case you have any further questions, you could get in touch with our DPO.
Proof of Execution
Proof of eXecution (PoX) is a method of running computational tasks in a decentralized way. While the tasks run, various metadata information is stored on the blockchain, and actual data is transferred using IPFS. Using this method computational tasks are certified on the blockchain while improving research reproducibility. We are developing this concept in partnership with 3 prestigious European research organizations.
Using the Testnet anyone can certify free of charge python3 tasks. Please visit the documentation page to find out more information about how to setup your Ethernity CLOUD NODE or attain Proof of eXecution using the Ethernity CLOUD CLIENT.
