With the help of more than a 1000 monks, the three books of the Tripiṭaka were first compiled and put into writing on palm leaves. We have taken the initiative to use the emerging technology of Blockchain to preserve the Tripiṭaka for future.
For our platform, we are using some of the properties of Blockchain technology to achieve the integrity and security necessary for the preservation of texts. The texts are broken down into units, and are individually reviewed and recorded onto the Blockchain with the approval of ordained monks, bhikkhus, and scholars. Once it is committed to the Blockchain over a distributed network, it will be made available to the public through this platform. The project will follow an incremental approach, slowly adding different texts and spreading across geographies, traversing languages, canons, and different schools of thought.
