An Open Protocol
for the Internet of Everything

We envision a future where every product has a unique & interoperable digital identity.

The Platform

Chronicled Open Source provides a toolkit that allows any brand, physical IP creator, product authenticator / customizer, or individual to assign a secure digital identity to a physical object by embedding an encrypted microchip and linking it to a blockchain record.

Open Source

All software published on the Chronicled Open Source platform will be licensed under the Apache License, and will be freely available for open use.



Community

This project will operate under principles of openness, transparency, and respect of community participation.

Sponsor

Chronicled is initially playing the role of project sponsor, but, the intent is to make available a fully open source system as a public good that lives on the blockchain, with participation from many partners and brands and without any dependency on Chronicled.

Why encrypted microchips?

Counterfeits

Serial numbers, QR codes, UPC codes, bar codes, and other unique identification systems can all be cloned or copied. Currently the global market for fake and counterfeit products is $1.8T—which is 10% of the U.S. gross domestic product. This is an enormous problem for Brands today.

Augmented Reality

The distribution of 2B+ mobile devices means the world is ready to interact with the physical environment of products everywhere, but, without a strong digital identity embedded in each product, progress will be much slower than is possible.

Interoperability in IoE

The consumer IoE is progressing, and many large Brands are experimenting with adding microchips to consumer and luxury products. However, without a common registry and authentication protocol, major interoperability issues and roadblocks will ensue for Brands, developers, and consumers.
