The Use of Blockchain for Digital Archives: Challenges and Perspectives

Over the last few years, the exploitation of blockchain technologies is increasing across different sectors, such as health and economy. A field that still remains little explored is that of digital archives owned by public administrations and other authoritative organizations. This paper investigates challenges and perspectives about the use of blockchain technologies for digital archives. The paper describes also a possible application scenario, which employs blockchain technology for the registration of minor artworks. The described platform deals with problems of artwork counterfeiting, loss and subsequent discovery, natural disasters and traceability.
