What is distributed ledger?
Distributed ledger technology (DLT) is an umbrella term for technologies which store, distribute and facilitate the exchange of value between users, either privately or publicly. Blockchain is only one type of distributed ledger, and the SICCAR platform actually uses another type – directed acyclic graph (DAG).
Why use distributed ledger to address data sharing?
Private-permissioned distributed ledger networks allow you to stay in control of your data while giving access to those who need it. To the best of our knowledge, no other technology offers this combination of control and flexibility.
Why call them registers and not ledgers?

Ledgers are traditionally associated with storing monetary transactions. Our platform addresses a wide number of use cases, the majority of which deal with the exchange of information such as personal data, rather than money.


Where does our platform fit into existing systems?

Our platform has been designed to co-exist with local systems. With API and OpenID compatibility, SICCAR can either work beside, or replace, your current IT solutions.

Do all processes require a secure digital ledger?
Not all of them. Just processes where data security, protection, integrity and governance are required.
How is SICCAR different to other blockchain platforms?
Many distributed ledger platforms require a steep learning curve, or lots of technical ability, to design and develop with. SICCAR provides a low-code environment so that business users as well as developers can create DLT applications quickly and easily.
What are W3C standards?
Led by web inventor Tim Berners-Lee, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community where member organisations, full-time staff, and the public work together to develop web standards. By working to the standards set by this consortium, we ensure our platform is interoperable and future-proof.
