The European Union (EU) is working on a project that involves blockchain architecture and the use of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to fight counterfeiting and forgery. The project is the product of several meetings and blockchain hackathons organized by the European Union Intellectual Property Office and proposes to create digital twins of products to trace their path across supply lines.

European Union to Use NFTs to Protect Intellectual Property

The European Union has recently announced that is working on a system that will use blockchain and NFTs as part of its fight against the counterfeiting of physical goods.

The system proposed will be designed by the European Union Intellectual Property Office, and is the product of more than five years of work. A document issued this month explains that the organization has already selected a high-level architecture for this task, and details generalities about how the system will work.

Intellectual property (IP) holders will create digital tokens (twin NFTs) to prove that a group of produced goods are authentic. These IP holders will have to be previously included as approved signatories to create these products on the tracking blockchain.

The solution will then allow for supply chain tracking as the products are transported through different checkpoints, allowing the IP holders to be certain that the products that reach stores are authentic.


Implementation

The European Union Intellectual Property Office hopes to have a working system by the end of 2023, but to achieve this objective, it will have to create a registry system to group all of the IP holders, logistics operations, and retailers in the EU. To better achieve its objective, the report states that the system will seek to be interoperable with existing supply chain tracking solutions.

If the European Union manages to implement this system by the end of 2023, it will be one of the first applications of blockchain technology at that scale for the objective. However, blockchain tech has also been used for supply line tracking before. Recently, Vechain, an enterprise blockchain project, announced a partnership with Orionone, a global supply chain technology solution, with the objective of integrating blockchain into its stack of working technologies.

The European Union is also currently discussing MiCA, a union-wide law proposal for regulating cryptocurrencies.

  1. Sats for deals!

    Hi guys, I've started a new community call sats_for_deals where I (or anyone else)will be able to post daily deals e.g holidays deals, discount deals, reduce to clear deals with location etc or any deals you may come across when out and about doing daily stuff. Basically anything you think is a deal you can post on Sats_for_deals. How it will work is 1. Find a great deal (whether it be on the Internet or in store) 2. Post the deal on Sats_for_deals with a Sats wallet address 3. Anyone that finds the deal to be of some use and take up the deal can tip the wallet address some Sats whether it be 1 sat or 100 sats what ever you think the deal is worth you can tip. With inflation running hot and will continue to run hot it will be good to find a few daily deals that can save us a few pounds(I'm based in the U.K.) or dollars or what ever dirty fiat currency we can use to buy more Satoshis. So hope you guys join r/Sats_for_deals and lets grow the community together and let's start saving to buy more sats!! Thanks r/Bitcoin.

  2. Consensus on price action? I’m adding to my position to get to 1 btc. Are we gonna break the recent 18kish mark? Thoughts?
