HOW DOES IT WORK?
- THE DIGITAL PASSPORT: When a customer purchases an item from a brand using Arianee technology, they receive a digital passport on their smartphone which includes all of the product’s information. In case of resell, the digital passport is transferred with the item and offers the new owner a guarantee of authenticity and good faith. On the other side, brands can track all transactions concerning their products, allowing brands to remain in perpetual, encrypted, and secure contact with the product owner.
THE NFC CRYPTO TAG: Each NFC Crypto Tag will be unique and contains a self-generated certificate which will be linked to the digital passport. Each unique certificate which will be on-chip generated could then be transferred through the NFC interface and verified by the blockchain servers. . The result of the check appears on the phone screen. In real time the user has the information on the authenticity of the product. (100% secure & non falsifiable)
