"Block chain + justice"

Full of imagination

Article 11 stipulates that "electronic data submitted by the parties shall be collected, fixed and tampered-proof by means of electronic signatures, trusted timestamps, hash checks, block chains, etc. If a person can be authenticated by electronic forensics deposit platform, the Internet court shall confirm the authenticity of the certificate. This is believed to be the first time that China uses the form of judicial interpretation to legally confirm the electronic deposit means of block chain technology, and will also accelerate the application of "block chain + judicial" scenario.

The "China Block Chain Industry White Paper 2018" issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology also points out that the use of block chain technology to store electronic evidence can effectively solve the security problems faced by traditional certificates. In the process of transmission, asymmetric encryption technology is used to encrypt the electronic evidence to ensure the transmission security, which fully guarantees the authenticity and security of the evidence. "In the forensics process, because the block chain is distributed storage, allowing multiple nodes such as judicial institutions, arbitration institutions, audit institutions to share electronic evidence in the alliance chain, it can theoretically achieve second-level data transmission, reduce the time cost of forensics, optimize the arbitration process, and improve the efficiency of multi-party cooperation."
