3.2 Immutability

One of the drawbacks of conventional databases is the possibility of data manipulation. Since the information is controlled by a single entity with a lack of full visibility, information can be altered, manipulated, or deleted.

The blockchain architecture ensures that data once stored on Inery cannot be manipulated or deleted. Since the data is distributed across multiple nodes, even if one node is corrupted, other nodes will retain the information. Further, data stored on the blocks is ciphered with a cryptographic hash function. Hence, if anyone tries to change data, it will be detected. This ensures accountability and authenticity of the data.
