Abstract: Evidence and witness play an important role to investigate crime and lawful jurisdiction in any case. But often, the victims do not get justice due to the middlemen and the altered evidences in the centralized network. Block chain is an ideal solution to ensure transparency till the highest hierarchy of jurisdiction using a decentralized peer to peer network to store data which is immutable. It is like a distributed ledger working on the proof of work algorithm that validates each amendment and modification made in a particular chain. Evichain inculcates the transparency and security of the same decentralized network in the crime investigation process. It is an application on which the entire data regarding any particular investigation is stored in a block chain with limited people having access rights. It also includes cases filed by the victims themselves. Every amendment made in the block chain is validated. Also the data access is restricted to the users with that specific private key.
