The distributed ledger technology of DIVA.EXCHANGE is Iroha

For data storage DIVA.EXCHANGE builds on the distributed ledger technology Iroha. Iroha is a blockchain under the roof of the established Hyperledger Foundation. Iroha is very slim and is suitable for small and weak devices (mobile, raspberry, TV) as well as for large server farms. The slim architecture is a huge advantage: because DIVA.EXCHANGE should use as little energy as possible. In fact, Iroha knows no “mining” in the usual, energy-wasting sense. Consensus on the validity of data is created very efficiently. Thus, within the framework of the DIVA.EXCHANGE project, Iroha also contributes to the fact that everyone can be their own bank.

With DIVA, the digital identity data is kept strictly separate from the financial transaction data. There is no central data storage or central data processing. Each user operates his own complete and individual banking technology, DIVA, on his own hardware (e.g. smartphone, tablet or laptop). Users are directly connected to other users (peer-to-peer). With DIVA the communication between users takes place securely and privately over the I2P network. The user only needs the freely available software DIVA and access to the Internet. This means that with DIVA everyone can be his own bank to store, manage and trade digital values.
