Abstract: The rapid growth in the population has lead to generation of large amount of data from each individual. Each and every individual holds several physically signed documents. Currently, the documents, certificates, and contracts are all printed in papers and manually signed. It is difficult for other party say a recruiter, or a government official or any other custom officer to verify the validity of the certificates and other documents of the individual. It consumes a tremendous amount of time for validating and verifying such documents manually. Thus we propose a system to develop a Decentralized application (DApp) for implementing a Blockchain[1] to store and verify the documents. By the nature of blockchain, the documents are securely stored with high integrity, and no further modifications can be done to the blocks in the chain which in turn reduces the creation of forged documents. Also using Distributed Ledger technology(DLT)[5] and IPFS the data is decentralised so that it is readily available with integrity. Also, using MultiSig[3] concepts, the system is more secured by two step authentication. Thus, blockchain creates trust and DLT provides integrity ease of access. And with use of IPFS the DApp is decentralized4
