Tile Document

Tile Document is a StreamType that stores a JSON document, providing similar functionality as a NoSQL document store.

Use cases

Tile Document streams are commonly used as a NoSQL database replacement for:

  • Identity metadata (i.e. profiles, social graphs, reputation scores, linked social accounts)
  • User-generated content (i.e. blog posts, social media, etc)
  • Indexes of other streams to form collections and user tables (i.e. IDX)
  • DID documents (i.e. 3ID DID)
  • Verifiable claims
  • And more


  • Data structure: Single log
  • Content requirements: JSON
  • Authetication: DIDs
  • Ordering: Anchor records that rely on blockchain checkponting (via blockheight)
  • Conflict resolution: Earliest anchor wins
