Proof of existence with file upload

Similar to the previous sample application, this sample application also creates a file hash from a local file, posts the file hash to the blockchain, and validates the file hash (to check if the file has been altered.)

This sample application also creates a file asset and uploads it to the storage server.

The file is then downloaded from the storage server. The file hash of the downloaded file is checked against the blockchain to see if it exists there.

Run the sample

In a terminal session or in your Docker SDK container, run the sample proof_of_existence_with_fileUpload.js:

node ng-rt-digitalAsset-sdk-samples/examples/usecases/proof_of_existence_with_fileUpload.js

(alias: proofFileUpload)

You should see output similar to this:
