Built in the mid 2000’s, SplitLock’s technology was acquired and remained dormant, while the acquiring company focused their efforts on other operations.
SplitLock’s innovations came about by vastly improving the secure transfer and storage of data by fragmentation—breaking it up into smaller pieces using clever recovery mechanisms. A user’s data never had to sit in one place, open to data leaks and hacks.
During a complete rebuild focusing on the modernisation of SplitLock in 2016, the team realised that the fundamentals of data fragmentation could be applied to blockchain. From that light bulb moment, SplitChain was created. The result was that data could now be stored in many pieces and places, securely and reliably, with proof of data transfer and ownership.
