In the context of this document, a computer readable storage medium may be any tangible medium that can contain, or store a program for use by or in connection with an instruction execution system, apparatus, or device. CRYPTOCURRENCY SYSTEM USING BODY ACTIVITY DATA.  User device 130 may include any device capable of processing and storing data/information and communicating over communication network 120. For example, the hash may be the output of the FFT where each component is a frequency band and the value is counts corresponding to each frequency band. For instance, the fMRI may measure body activity by detecting changes associated with blood flow.  At operation 330, user device 130 generates body activity data based on the body activity sensed by sensor 140. The task may require user 145 to solve a verification challenge, for example, but not limited to, an image based challenge including instructions prompting user 145 to solve the challenge through interaction with one or more images. The system of any preceding and/or succeeding Concept(s), wherein the cryptocurrency system is configured to: receive, from the device of the user, data of the body activity generated before the hash algorithm is applied and the hash of the body activity; rehash the data of the body activity; and compare the rehashed data with the hash of the body activity received from the device of the user to verify the body activity data. Communication network 120 may enable communication between various computing resources or devices, servers, and systems. Examples of body radiation emitted from human body may include radiant heat of the body, pulse rate, or brain wave. Because each compute resource 210 stores a copy of at least a portion of the public ledger 230 of blockchain network 200, public ledger 230 may be independently verified for accuracy at any time by comparing the stored copies of multiple compute resources 210.
