Abstract
Unlike long ago information storage in recent times heavily relies on technology. Physical representations like paper-based documents of data have minimized to a negligible amount. But relying on technology has also its drawbacks. These drawbacks can essentially be in terms of security and security breaches can result in compromising data worth a lot of money. In order to tackle this problem, this research looks into the state-of-the-art cryptographic algorithms and data storing paradigms, more specifically focus on the form of data storage known as Blockchains. Currently no such system is available where the user has the capability to create dynamic schemas to store their data in Blockchains along with the its integration with their existing system. Leveraging the concepts of Smart Contracts and Blockchain, on this report a novel data storing engine by which users can create dynamic data schemas is proposed. Also, a data query abstraction layer is created and proposed to manage the data, integration of this system with the users existing system. Finally, the results are presented by building an application which is built using the proposed engine and thus evaluate the solution.
