We are the Truth behind the Product
Transparency through technology
Almost three trillion dollars (OECD) worth of goods are being counterfeited every year and customers are increasingly facing the risk of buying fake products instead of authentic ones. This unfortunate reality causes customers to lose confidence in brands and makes it nearly impossible for them to sell their items on the secondary market.
collectID solves this problem for both brands and customers by combining blockchain and IoT technology, providing a secure product authentication ecosystem.
Products get equipped with secure collectID NFC tags which provide a unique, secure message that changes with each interaction, which makes it impossible to duplicate the tag.
This creates a dynamically encrypted and unique identity for each product. This identity is then assigned to its owner, tokenized, and stored on the blockchain. Thanks to the immutability of the blockchain, the collectID ecosystem is a truly tamper-proof solution that removes the financial incentives and scalability of selling counterfeit products.
With collectID there is even more
Brands can place their messages directly on the product and increase customer engagement by extending the shopping experience. For the first time in history, brands earn money from secondary trading.
Additionally, they receive detailed data and analytics about resale markets and their customers. In other words, brands turn their products into a communication and sales channel, all while guaranteeing the authenticity of their products.
collectID patented technology offers a unique combination of NFC tags and blockchain to deliver the first fully secure product authenticity ecosystem.

What is blockchain and how does it work?
A blockchain is a data structure that is designed to maintain a digital ledger of transactions. The software that manages a blockchain works by distributing copies of this ledger to every computer running the software, creating a decentralized network of machines that all hold the same exact transaction history. When an entry is added to the ledger on one machine, every other machine participating in the network must update their ledger to match the changes. It can be thought of, more familiarly, as an extra secure database with the added benefits of transparency and decentralization. This is how we store the details of your portfolio so that, by virtue of some clever cryptography, only you have the credentials to transfer the ownership of your collectibles. Blockchain technology ensures that the collectID product ecosystem is as secure as technically possible.
