Transaction Record Tagging
How can the traceability and comprehensibility of transaction records be improved?
Raw transaction records can provide accurate data about transactions, but can lack meaningful information required to track and understand historical transaction data.
Transaction records can include an optional or mandatory field, allowing users to add supplemental data in the form of tags.
The blockchain application is designed to provide an additional tag field that users can populate prior to submitting transaction records to the network.
