My filings

What is a filing?

A filing can be a Proposal, Challenge, Post or Contract. You can find your filings under "My Activities".

What is the difference between Proposal, Challenge and Post?

With a Proposal you secure, protect and share your confidential information via ipOcean. You offer users to request your filing to get access to the deposited document.

Create a Challenge if you are looking for a solution to a specific problem. You are challenging the ipOcean community to submit their proposals to solve your problem.

With these filings a document is hashed and secured on the blockchain.

With a Post no document is secured on the blockchain. It corresponds to an average social media post that can be used to communicate via the platform.
