On the other hand, Factom has emerged as one of the most undisputable and extremely dependable records of monetary transactions available. Data once recorded on this platform remains there forever. It cannot be changed or removed. That’s why Factom is regarded as a trusted record resource which can be used for verifying records and for its safekeeping.
