What is Attestation Ledger?

Attestation Ledger is normally used to “prove” that a financial transaction has taken place or to authenticate transactions or products. The proof is usually in the form of a receipt, invoice or bank statement.

The Attestation Ledger acts as a special ledger for a separate account. The separate account can be an e-commerce account – a digital cryptocurrency wallet or a PayPal account. The attestation register is proof that financial transactions have taken place. They may also be accompanied by statements or agreements that serve as proof to third parties that obligations have been fulfilled.

Attestation registers are public distributed registers used to certify individual transactions. A transaction identification number can be entered into the registry to verify whether a transaction is valid or not.

Attestation registries can be used by the blockchain operating system – also called BOLOS – when connecting a host computer to ensure that the device has not been tampered with or tampered with.

Attestation registers can also be used by applications to prove that they are running on a legitimate device.
