- Exclusive interview. Elementh - a blockchain infrastructure designed for e-commerce market BASE.INFO team has interviewed Lyibov Bruk the PR manager of Elementh project. Sep 3, 2018
Elementh is a blockchain designed for the e-commerce sector. It represents a register of "ownership of goods", which has the ability to write specialized smart contracts and use the nomenclature standard to quickly create various decentralized and centralized applications.
Along with the system of tokens, Elementh has a system of goods, which can also be used in a large number of applications, such as tracking the movement of a particular item from its creation to the current owner, tracking original goods and detecting counterfeit goods. Unlike the system of tokens, the system of goods also provides for the ability to "issue" a particular product at a particular address, indicating all possible item's data (such as name, manufacturer, bar code, etc.).
And if identical goods are already present in the blockchain, the issuer will receive a message about it, and he will have the opportunity to indicate how many items of goods he wants to "issue". If an item has a serial number, it is possible to specify it when the transfer operation is being performed. To provide protection against data forging, only the hash of the serial number is fixed in the system, therefore only the person who knows the initial number has the ability to make a valid transaction.
In the absence of a serial number at the moment of "issuing" goods, the system generates it randomly and the holder is able to use it to identify a particular item of goods by printing out the QR code on the package, writing it in an RFID tag or in any other convenient way.
