Adhat.io is the world’s first decentralized peer-to-peer marketplace for digital content that's built on Blockchain technology. The platform empowers users to buy, sell, track, trade, auction and authenticate digital content such as images, video, eBooks and software as needed whilst protecting the rights, rewarding content creators and motivating consumers to legitimately trade their pre-owned content. It is an ecosystem where real-world dynamics are applied to digital content; it will enable consumers users to buy, sell, track, trade, authenticate and auction digital content as it is done in the real world and finally provide escrow services.
Since the beginning of the software era; there is an ongoing struggle for eliminating copyright infringement. Associations such as the BSA [Business Software Alliance], WIPO [World Intellectual Property Organization] and laws such as the DMCA [Digital Millennium Copyright Act] amongst others, have been working hard to:
• Control piracy • Promote original content • Reward content creators • Advocate the legitimate trade of pre-owned media
Adhat will solve these challenges by creating a decentralized ecosystem that will allow users to create truly unique and individual content, reward creators for their work and finally allow users to trade pre-owned media between them whilst protecting and rewarding the content creators.
One of the main causes for technology being unable to effectively prevent piracy and infringement, can be attributed to the inability of creating a level of ‘technical uniqueness’ to digital content. However, with the advent of ‘Blockchain Technology’; we are, today able to ‘tag’ digital content and add a level individuality to it, through utilizing the HASH feature that is inherent in cryptography.
By utilizing the HASH feature and intelligently employing cryptocurrency economics [Fiat may be used in future]; the Adhat ecosystem will reward content creators and traders with cryptocurrency in exchange for quality content and motivate users to ‘pass on’ pre-owned media, to other users , who may not be able to afford buying licenses and full rights to the original content and/or to users who only need to use the particular software application for a week.
A mobile version [wallet/browser] of the application will be available that will bring handheld devices onto the Blockchain. The application will enable users to capture images, audio, video and similar content; geo-tag and HASH the content as it is created and posted on Adhat. by using the technology this way we can prevent the spreading of fake news and also use the content in the court of law.
Adhat will function as a Peer To Peer, decentralized Blockchain network to provide a method for license generation, control and validation that could be used by anyone from an independent software/content
