Engraved is blockchain technology built on top of Ethereum with two main goals. First, provide a permanent, secure and cheap mechanism to establish indelible records which relate original works with their copyright holders. This relation is built through customizable copyright licenses on a certain moment in time. The original work is not stored on the blockchain but a cryptographic digest of it, allowing the copyright holder to keep its work in secret if desired. Second, Engraved also constitutes a system for file integrity verification, where file distributors can register files with their checksums under a custom namespace if desired.

February 2018 Core Smart Contracts
The core contracts are constituted by the registries (copyright and integrity) contracts and the DAO contracts (The Engraved Decentralized Autonomous Organizacion and the Engraved Coin token)
March 2018 Engraved Dashboard
The Engraved dashboard will be developed if a minimum amount of 190 ether is reached during the ICO. Through a web application, users will be able to engrave items: both original works at the copyright registry and files at the integrity registry. This first version will be highlighted by its simplicity of use. An Ethereum wallet will not be needed either off-chain sign up. With a traditional payment gateway, the user will pay for an estimation of the transaction cost in Ethereum gas plus the engraving commission
September 2018 Advanced Engraved Dashboard
The next iteration will be implemented if a minimum amount of 580 ether is reached. This advanced web dashboard will support all Engraved features including entity management for the integrity validation registry. It also will include user profiles and metadata management, so users will be able to see their engraved files and handle their entities.
March 2019 Permanent and Secure IPFS Storage
If we reach an amount of 980 ether we will release the complete platform. This last step includes permanent and secure storage for original works on IPFS (the InterPlanetary File System). Although the original work is not needed for engraved it (only the cryptographic digest), authors will be able to store their works and make it accessible through this platform ensuring high availability.
The Engraved development is not limited to the functionalities previously discussed. According to the reception of the project by the community other functionalities and/or modules would be developed. Moreover, remember that core contract are not predefined and must be approved after crowdsale, so the community could propose features on the core features.
