Bratislava, Slovakia – February 20, 2020 – When it comes to original creations, what are the most taxing strains creators, artists, and inventors have to overcome? Some would say it is self-doubt, for others, it is artist burnout. Arguably, among the biggest pressures ranks the fear of stolen ideas and concepts.
With the dawning of the digital age, original creations are, more than ever, exposed to the dangers of theft and piracy crimes. Moreover, they are growing increasingly unrestful when it comes to presenting their ideas in public collaborations and pitching to investors.
The Internet has, however, helped to emerge new ways of overcoming this long-entrenched hurdle. Shedding new light on the matter, the team behind Digital Proof—a digital IP protection tool—believes their product hits the scene as a tool to instantly protect ideas after the initial finishing process. The team markets the tool suitable for creators and lawyers alike.
Launched only last year, Digital Proof works on a cryptography-based technology, called blockchain. The technology ensures the absolute authenticity of recording data in time and place—thanks to its timestamping feature.
The ideas are, however, never stored on servers, avoiding any sense of compromising their existence. Instead, Digital Proof uses blockchain’s hashing function to encrypt all recorded ideas, solely storing the numeric code of the uploaded file. The said file can then be easily compared with its original counterpart, warding off fraud and proving credibility.
Blockchain, as an up-and-coming technological phenomenon, has been increasingly gaining traction across all Europe and Asia. In China last year, President Xi Jinping called for greater levels of research and investment into blockchain, and the Chinese Internet Court accepted data stored blockchain as legitimate evidence in a court dispute between two social networking services.
“I truly believe blockchain is on its way to becoming the go-to technology when it comes to authenticating evidence. Seeing such favorable take-offs as the ones in China, Italy, UK, and the USA, blockchain is sure to make a crucial difference in how intellectual property is protected and how evidence can be presented,” commented Matej Michalko, CEO and Founder of DECENT—the parent company behind Digital Proof.
Digital Proof features a selectable set of two plans suited for individual entrepreneurs as well as enterprises, each with a customizable assortment of features, ranging from pay-as-you-go models to monthly subscriptions. The tool offers a seven-day free trial for all new registrees.
