It’s a huge problem, but one that might soon be solved by a simple tap or scan with any smart phone.
Seal is introducing a exciting new solution to the problem of counterfeit products. By adding a NFC chip to a product and then linking that chip to a decentralised database on the blockchain, Seal is able to provide a transparent and reliable record of the authenticity of the individual product.
Customers can access that information by simply using their seal app to scan the product that they are considering buying. Instantly that customer can determine whether or not the product is genuine or not.

They then discovered that this blockchain technology could be combine with NFC technology in order to prevent counterfeiting. The idea was borne then but didn’t come until full fruition in 2017 when they started to put their plan into action.
