Homework - Provenance: Questions

  1. How does blockchain enable digital provenance?
    By allowing the ability to trace back to the origin or root of records in real time - does not allow changes
  2. Why doesn’t a normal database bring the same provenance?
    A normal database can be damaged, changed and delayed. It can even crawl to a standstill. This type of database, normal database, is not trustworthy.
  3. Why is digital provenance such a great benefit to many businesses?
    Being on a different type of database such as the blockchain, businesses can rest assured that their records / transactions are being verified in real time and this is done fast, with no delays, and can be seen by all /public.
