Tapestry alpha will release in: Placeholders will soon reach tail emission of 0.1235 PHL per block.

Use Placeholders as a decentralized alternative to Amazon Cloud Services or Google Cloud

Artifacts are the backbone of the Placeholders' framework, allowing for the pooling of decentralized resources. Enable the creation of VPS's on demand by storing data and executable code with torrent and distributed ledger technology.

Purpose & Benefit

Tool to track, verify and authenticate the origin and transit of data. View the path data has undergone as it travels through the network.

Web & Interface

Using JSON for data interchange makes placeh artifacts portable across the network and machine and platform agnostic. Thin or thick client can interact with network nodes through a simple protocol.

Data & Executable

Load, retrieve, send and receive data. Execute distributed applications in series or in parallel easily and in a decentralized manner.

Store, Track, Send

Use artifacts as a packaging mechanism for long or short term storage, or to transport electronic commercial or hobby based packages to any recipient anywhere the internet exists in the world.

Deploy Content to Network

Track, authenticate and verify data as it moves through the network.

How to Redeem Voucher

In order to redeem paper wallets, you will need to:
Step 0: Install the full node. (See instructions above)
Step 1: Go to the console and "addnode add" to join the network, wait for synchronization.
Step 2: Use a QR code reader to scan the code, then send it to your email or copy and paste into the placeh full node console.
Step 3: If you are on the network, you can then use the importprivkey "key" in the console to add the key to your keyring.
Step 4: Check your balance to see that the value of the coins have been redeemed.
Alternately: Use sweep paper wallet function on our Android Mobile Wallet.
