simplyBrand: Lending Much Needed Integrity to the E-Commerce World
We are experiencing a digital economy, one ruled e-commerce. Technological advancements have made our lives easier and it was a matter of time before we were served products and services on a platter. More specifically, at the click of a button. The rise, and eventual popularization, of online shopping, was an obvious evolution. 2018 has seen rapid growth in the number of internet users — 4.021 billion to be precise. With the increase in the number of people who have access to the internet, the number of consumers who are turning to e-commerce has also increased.
The simple theory of demand suggests that a decrease in the price of a product increases the demand for it. Counterfeiting is exploiting this principle to sell lower quality artificial products at a cheaper rate. Without the presence of an acute measure for the prevention of counterfeiting, it has increased manifold in the global market — totally inundating it — creating difficulties for both, the consumers and the brands.
In 2017, the online counterfeit market was estimated to be worth a whopping USD 323 billion, out of which 80% of counterfeits originated from China. The most counterfetited products include food, toys and tobacco. This is sure to ring serious alarm bells because with food being faked, it can create a health epidemic that we haven’t experienced in a long time.
simplyBrand is offering e-commerce verification services to reputed clients around the world and has now entered a new era with its blockchain-powered solutions to offer a revolutionary platform for helping tackle the menace of counterfeiting from the growing world of e-commerce.
What is simplyBrand?
simplyBrand was created with a vision of building a world of e-commerce which is free from counterfeiting and where the identity of the brand and the consumers are protected against fake products. To put this thought into action, simplyBrand has come up with a unique amalgamation of AI, blockchain and crowdsourced participants. It is a platform on which the brands can seek services to detect sellers and online merchants involved in selling fake products. Along with technology, the platform also seeks the help of crowdsourced participants who can directly report the counterfeit products. The data of all such merchants is put up on a public blockchain, creating a sort of “blacklist.” This creates an economic and reputation hurdle for counterfeiters. En bref, simplyBrand spans everything which can be the beginning of the end of the counterfeit product market.
