Counterfeit Prevention
Counterfeit Prevention

Counterfeiting is an increasingly lucrative criminal enterprise that is expensive to track and mitigate, with damaging consequences for consumers. A blockchain-based supply chain that serves as both a digital database of events and participant activity, as well as product origin, can prevent fraud and increase overall transparency by facilitating an easy and fast reporting process, assurance of product authenticity and streamlined information sharing. Blockchain’s immutability and instant auditability of data can also help manufacturers significantly improve their compliance with anti-counterfeiting legislation at relatively low cost without impacting the existing IT or application infrastructure.
