Data security is an important aspect of the cloud storage environment. It is highly required to preserve very crucial user data in the cloud. Blockchain technology can become the prominent solution to maintain the privacy and security of data. The blockchain contains transactions in the form of a distributed database of records which are a public ledger for all digital activities or events that have been created and shared among participants. The details of all important data are stored in the form of transactions or blocks in the blockchain. Each activity on the community list is ensured by the consensus of the majority of participants in the process. A blockchain contains a specific and verified record of a single transaction. Confidential and important data files can be stored securely on decentralized storage using the proposed framework so that privacy and confidentiality will be maintained. Due to improved scalability, large data files can be stored in the blockchain. Transaction speed and block generation time are also focused in the proposed framework, which is irrevocable in nature due to the use of blockchain smart contracts and IPFS.
