The installation generates a 12 – word seed phrase that needs to be kept in a safe place. You can use this seed to recover your account in case you forget your details.

These steps explain the complete MetaMask setup. If you are still confused, check out the video description below.

ETH or Ether is a digital currency that is used to upload the document onto the blockchain system. After your MetaMask account is set up, you can start buying Ether or ETH. Are you unclear about why you need to buy ETH/Ether? Check out here.

This is the last step that you will need to begin digitizing your documents. Once you log in to your account, you can view or upload your essential records.

Step 5 – Upload

Uploading the document to the blockchain is straightforward and easy. After a successful login, you will see the SAFEBOX Dashboard. You can upload your document there. It can be done in the following four steps.

Step 1.

Upload the document and press ‘Continue.’ 

The uploading can be done using either the drag and drop feature or by clicking anywhere on the upload area. Once you select the document, you need to digitize; Press ‘Continue’ and move to the next step.

Step 2.

Step 3.

Enter your email address for document verification and press ‘Continue.

The email address is the next important thing in this entire uploading process. Make sure you put the address that you want to associate with the uploaded document. This email address is how the blockchain system will identify you and your documents.

Step 4.

Confirm your transaction details and the approximate cost. Press’ Confirm.

And we are onto the last step. This page displays data that will be uploaded to the Ethereum blockchain. The details include- email address, a hash value of the original document (SHA-256 hash), public key*, and timestamp.

Don’t worry; your original document is not uploaded to the system. Instead, a hash value of the document is created, and that is uploaded. Any change in the record will reflect in this hash value, so the next time you try to upload the document with a slight difference, the hash value will be different. If you want to know more about this read here.

Public key*- It is used to verify your identity and is automatically uploaded from the MetaMask extension. Please ensure your MetaMask is unlocked when you are uploading it.  

Click ‘Upload’.

 A MetaMask pop up will appear that displays the summary of the whole transaction. You can then press ‘Confirm‘ to send the entire record on the blockchain system.

It usually takes about 1-30 minutes to upload depending upon the document size and the network state.

Step 6 – Verify

The verification process ensures document Integrity and Uploader identity. This step is used to verify that the document/record has not tampered. This is a straightforward and easy process.

On your SAFEBOX dashboard, go to the ‘Verify tab.‘ Now follow the two steps written below and click on verify.

Step 1- Upload the original document 

Step 2- Enter the uploader email id. Press’ Verify.’

After the step1 and step2 are complete the blockchain system with match the information across its database. Depending on the information provided, you get two results.

Verification success

If the information(original document and email id) matches with the database, the result is Successful verification.

Verification Failed

If either of the two things or both the information does not match, the result is a failed verification process.

In case the document uploaded does not match with the hash value of the original document present on the blockchain system. This will result in failed verification, indicating failed document integrity.

In case your document matches but the email id you added does not match, it will result in a failed uploader identity.
You can also check with the public key for more security.
