About

Photochain revolutionizes the status quo of photography trading. It is a decentralized, peer-to-peer image platform on blockchain with fair conditions, attractive incentivation mechanisms, lowest fees in the market and full control over the content, price and license type for the photographer. On the IPFS Photochain database, each uploaded photo is linked to a photographer through a blockchain transaction. This link cannot be removed or manipulated in any way. Photochain is in the pole position and ready to disrupt the monopolized photography industry with a great, experienced and influential team and board of advisors. We recently won 3rd place in the ICO Pitch Competition at the Blockchain Leadership. Thanks to our attractive demo MVP, the judges could see envision exactly what the final product will look like in addition to what we will achieve for photographers. We are partnered with the highly rated Blockchain Zoo (top 3 blockchain consulting firm world wide).

Vision: Photochain aims to solve photography industry issues with their decentralized platform. The main problem that photographers earn only a tiny part of their sales prices, because of the photography microstock platforms high fees even up to 90%. Photochain aims to be like a decentralized marketplace for photographers with only 5% fee which will lead to more affordable prices in the market. Also, platform users will be able to set their own price on their works,  preserve copyrights, secure their digital images. All platform provided features will be integrated using new technologies: blockchain, InterPlanetary File System (IPFS),machine learning algorithm.

Product: Photochain product – decentralized photography marketplace/microstock platform for digital images which solves this industry issues with features provided to the photographers. Photochain will use machine learning algorithm to fulfill the specific technological requirements of stock photography.  Digital images will be encrypted and stored decentrally by using InterPlanetary File System and Photochain database. Photochain decentralized application will be written in JavaScript to protect platform independence. Also, Photochain platform will ensure copyrights by using IPFS Photochain node and Photochain Digital Copyright Chain with these solutions users can link their images to their name. Decentralized application will work in two modes – buyer and seller mode to ensure comfortable payment system, dApp will be integrated with Payment Wallet Module.  Main platform competitors are well known giants in this field – Shutterstock and AdobeStock, however Photochain “brings” more power to the artists with unique features and solutions. One important advantage that this project have a working beta version.

Team: Photochain –  Estonia-based team consists of  17 team members and 11 advisors.  Team looks very well set as majority of team members includes technical positions such as blockchain developers, engineers, senior JavaScript developers, designers and etc.  This looks very strong and promising. Also, team includes members from the photography field.. Photochain was co-founded by CEO – Stanislav Stolberg. Project advisory board includes different positions from different spheres including marketing, blockchain, strategy, crowdsale advisors.  To conclude, team looks very strong and well designed.


Token Structure: PHOTON token (PHT) will be an ERC20 standard token built on Ethereum blockchain. Token will be used as a main currency on the platform to pay for services, listings, features, Photochain will offer exchange services in cryptocurrencies within the Photochain Wallet module integrated and also, to attract non crypto users Photochain plans to establish a partnership with prominent fiat to crypto service.  All transactions will be done through a Smart Contracts which includes some of the main information. Maximum Supply: 230,000,000 PHT. However, this project actually reserves 21% of the photon tokens for the team, advisory board which seems to be quite high these days.
