Blockchain

A blockchain, originally block chain, is a growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked using cryptography. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data. By design, a blockchain is resistant to modification of the data.

Labii is the FIRST and the ONLY company in the market that uses the blockchain technology to secure your research data. A key (Hash) is created as the signature to each version, and used to verify the connections to its previous version.

Preview

The detail of each version can be preview via clicking the the version title. The view is same as the print view, and it is readonly, no changed can be made.

Restore to previous version

If mistakes are made, you have options to restore to a previous version. Click "Restore" to restore. The restore will create a new version with notes "restored from version xxx".
