Title: METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR FAST TRACKING NAVIGATION OF BLOCKCHAINS VIA DATA MANIPULATION
Abstract:
A method for generating a blockchain configured for fast navigation includes: storing a blockchain comprised of a plurality of blocks, each block including a header comprised of a fast track flag, fast track reference, timestamp, and hash value, where the plurality of blocks includes standard blocks having a deactivated fast track flag and fast track blocks having an activated fast track flag; identifying a most recent fast track block based on the timestamp in the fast track blocks; identifying a most recent overall block based on the timestamp included in the plurality of blocks; generating a fast track hash value via hashing the most recent fast track block; generating a chain hash value via hashing the most recent overall block; and writing a new block to the blockchain including a block header comprised of a timestamp, activated fast track flag, the fast track hash value, and the chain hash value.
