About Veracity Protocol

Veracity Protocol is a CV/ML-based web3 company bridging the physical with digital.
Our mission is to build “the protocol of trust to protect people and their assets in the digital world". We enable smartphone or industrial cameras to identify and authenticate physical objects based on their unique material structure only. This guarantees the highest level of data veracity, solves the critical blockchain oracle problem, and enables the entire Web3 infrastructure for physical objects.
Our team is distributed across NYC, Prague, Brno, Geneva, and Taipei. We've been recognized as one of the top innovative startups globally by Intel, Techstars, Plug & Play, Microsoft, and Starburst Aerospace. Our global customers repeatedly recognize us as the best solution in the market. We are engaged across industries from collectibles, art, luxury goods, pharma, semiconductors, automotive, to non-invasive security printing
Our code of culture is “ideas always win”. The best ideas can come from anywhere. We have a collaborative culture where we discuss things openly, and everyone has a voice.

Where does our vision meet

Soon, both automation powered by deep learning and metaverse built on top of web 3.0 will proliferate through our society and touch almost every industry. With democratized 3D printing you will reverse the supply chain, and with VP you will tokenize and secure the authenticity of your creation. Your expensive digital wardrobe will come as a part of your physical one, where the VP will deliver proof-of-ownership. You will buy a game-worn collectible jersey on an NFT marketplace that has been tokenized by the player himself using VP. The DeFi escrow will be unlocked automatically once verified as authentic by your shipping company using VP. Meanwhile, somewhere far away an automotive component is manufactured, its digital twin securely linked by VP to a token allowing it to transact automatically as it goes through the complex supply chain. The expensive treatment pills you bought will prove its safety and just authenticity by taking a picture using your smartphone.
Ultimately, VP will help people to recognize what is real and what is not in the fully automated and decentralized world. Unlocking web3 for physical objects means enabling them to be tokenized, owned, traded, insured, collateralized, fractionalized, authenticated, tracked, taken into the metaverse, and more – all on top of any blockchain and owned by the user only.
