NKOR – New standard for verification and distribution of digital data

The novel technology at the core of the ecosystem authenticates data that is uploaded to the platform. The data is linked to a transaction on a blockchain via smart contracts, being time-stamped, in order to provide a permanent and publicly readable record.

A new venture in the field of intellectual property, addressing millions of creators around the world and striving to replace lawyers and intermediaries in the industry. The venture provides an absolute timestamp which enables creators to prove ownership of their work by using innovative technology. 

Eric Klein, NKOR’s CEO: “We use the natural features of Blockchain technology, which registers every transaction of information that is executed through it on the one hand, and is impenetrable to changes and manipulations on the other. Thus, we allow creators, whether coders or artists, to unquestionably record their works and to prove in this way that they were first. This matter becomes a problem, especially when it comes to private creators or small businesses exploited by large corporations. We want to protect them by allowing them to prove that they have the copyright for their creation. From my experience, creation is not yours if you cannot prove it.”

According to PWC, the projected annual earnings from royalties of music and videos, until 2021, will be about 40 billion USD. One can only conclude that the copyright market as a whole is much broader and that many creators who find costly solutions today or give up adequate protection of their ideas because of their cost, will see NKOR as a cheaper, simpler, and more efficient solution.

The ambitious project is in the midst of the development process – the architecture and the mechanisms of duplications’ prevention are already done. The team is working on the algorithm’s integration which will be finalized by mid-2018. 

Copyright issues

Creators absorb a mortal economic blow when their creations are taken away from them, especially when it comes to facing big corporations in order to protect their rights.

The victims are from various fields: writers, musicians, designers, painters, photographers, software developers, inventors – they all have difficulties and need massive financial expenditures since they do not have unequivocal tools to prove their intellectual property in court.

The legislator finds it challenging to deal with the phenomenon of illegal downloading and piracy, which leads to the trampling of the artist’s rights, and sometimes even to relinquishing his rights because he has no tools to contend with powerful corporations.

NKOR’s Blockchain based solution

Blockchain allows registration of information in a secure, transparent, and efficient method of transactions between participants, without the need for intermediaries. This technology is built in a way that all data transfers that are registered in its environment, is recorded and irreversible by private entities, hackers or even governments – make it resistant for changes and reliable as evidence.

It was only a matter of time until a group of entrepreneurs will be formed and take the blockchain based solution into implementation. NKOR’s groundbreaking technology for processing data, using a multi-layer index hashing algorithm, will be implemented on blockchain for the first time.

The novel technology at the core of the ecosystem authenticates data that is uploaded to the platform. The data is linked to a transaction on a blockchain via smart contracts, being time-stamped, in order to provide a permanent and publicly readable record.

The system keeps track on uploading and sharing of the same data by other entities to prevent plagiarism and cementing it into a blockchain via smart contracts, aka Anchoring.

The system also deals with the settlement of disputes between users of the system. Oracles are authorized by the parties to give their verdict.

NKOR’s Marketplace

NKOR’s venture is highly attractive in the ICO landscape due to its ability to give a real utility to the currency. The marketplace is the additional angle that NKOR’s platform can offer – allows the artist to upload works to the platform, to trade it with other users, and eliminates the need for agents and lawyers. Thus, most of the profit was saved to the intellectual property owner.

That is how, in fact, the need to hold the currency is kept. The marketplace has a considerable potential based on the fact that many creators that want to protect themselves will naturally progress to the next level and use NKOR’s system in order to trade their creations.

NKR Token

The platform will return to the public after four years since its establishment, and eventually, will be having no profit from any transaction, and work completely autonomously. To finance the NKOR ecosystem, 200 million issued tokens (NKR) will be in total supply, and 80 million will be offered at a sale event.  

The crowdsale seeks to collect ETH equivalent to 20 million USD, with each NKR token priced at $0.5.

The tokens will be used to finance the further development of the NKOR ecosystem and its ongoing operations, as well as to attract additional strategic partners to the NKOR’s team to further its expansion. Currently, NKOR has more than 50 employees, in offices in Israel, New York, Kiev and expected to grow to more than 100 employees until March 2018.

Part of the revenues will be held in a vesting schedule for the founding team that will ensure an incentive for them to perform well and remain with the company.

The entrepreneurs

NKOR had already raised over 1 million USD before the official pre-sale began.  Klein adds: “Some of the reasons for the success of the preliminary fundraising are that the partners and board members come from the world of media and intellectual property, and highly experienced. All will enable the project to develop until full maturity”

Eric Klein: “Throughout 11 years of experience in the media industry, I dealt with copyright infringement on a daily basis, such as illegal downloading of original content. Today, companies use content monitoring agencies to track whether copyright infringement has occurred, but it is not even close to full copyright protection. With the help of NKOR, proving of whether the document belongs to you or not has become much easier”.

Caricature of Thai scholar raises money for dissidents

Feb 20, 2018

BANGKOK — A cartoonist who lampoons Thailand's military government has done a caricature of a historian critical of the nation's monarchy and sold it in an online auction to raise money for legal aid for political dissidents, a legal aid group said Monday.

US Navy says China's military buildup won't stop patrols

Feb 20, 2018

ABOARD USS CARL VINSON, Philippines — U.S. forces are undeterred by China's military buildup on man-made islands in the South China Sea and will continue patrolling the strategic, disputed waters wherever "international law allows us," said a Navy officer aboard a mammoth U.S. aircraft carrier brimming with F-18 fighter jets. Lt. Cmdr. Tim Hawkins told The Associated Press on board the USS Carl Vinson that the Navy has carried out routine patrols at sea and in the air in the region for 70 years to promote security and guarantee the unimpeded flow of trade that's crucial for Asian and U.S....
