The fight against counterfeiting and illicit trade is based on information, and in the majority of cases, information in real time. Gather information on where, how and who are critical first steps. When investigating counterfeit goods, goods seized from the street are usually only a fraction of the entire shipment and a tiny part of the overall problem. Untangling this chain across national borders, which in the majority of cases leads to multiple dark jurisdictions, requires specialized skills, global reach, well-placed contacts and, most importantly, speed. The harsh reality is that as you progress the network has changed and you find yourself chasing empty warehouses and dead entities.
In a WHO study, $ 30.5 billion is the estimated cost associated with acquiring falsified drugs around the world. Counterfeiting in the pharmaceutical industry has a huge impact that replaces any financial loss. Deaths from counterfeit drugs are also on the rise, which means that it is important to find a solution to this threat.
Due to the high demand for Covid19 rapid test kits, crooks are taking advantage of the surge in demand and offering fake and unauthorized test kits.
ZEKID® Traceable anti-counterfeit NFT certificate built into the packaging and the test itself. Enabling the production of the world’s most secure Covid19 antigen rapid test kit.
“Now that we have proven our ability to deliver the world’s most reliable Antigen rapid test kit, we knew the next phase would be to put in place the most secure infrastructure against counterfeiting in the LFT market. “Said Emidio Do Sacramento.
How it works?
Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, are unique assets created using blockchain and the Ethereum network.
Distributed ledger technology, aka Blockchain technology, which keeps track of every transaction and information processed, is used to very easily trace the NFT attached to the product. They cannot be tampered with, and only the owner of the NFT has full rights to the NFT. No intrusion is possible.
NFT is considered a non-fungible token which is a smart contract inheriting proof of authenticity for your real world asset which is actually proof of ownership registered in a blockchain to record all transactions regarding that NFT.
ZEKMED, along with ZEKID, aims to bridge real-world assets and tamper-proof NFT technology by delivering a suite of physical health products backed by printed proof of authenticity.
The decentralized nature gives you privacy and security. They are immutable, and even if information from the NFT is captured, it cannot be traced back to the owner.
Blockchain Counterfeit Protection
ZEKID® Digital copyright protection and anti-counterfeiting technology protect manufacturers and owners of intellectual property all along the production chain to distribution and sales channels.
NFTs and blockchain can support the fight against counterfeit medical devices by streamlining the authentication process. NFTs create digital fingerprints or a “token identifier” that attaches to a particular item throughout its lifetime. The uniqueness of each NFT is specifically defined by the information stored in the NFT’s metadata – pointing to valuable digital assets that are updated in real time on the blockchain. NFTs provide an immutable ledger record reducing, and potentially eliminating, discrepancies and outright fraud.
In the case of the Covid19 rapid test kits, NFTs have the ability to secure and streamline the tracking process, allowing immediate identification of issues. This means that issues can be resolved much faster, including identifying black market production lots and removing them from the system.
Our first goal was to create the best rapid test kits on the market and we achieved this by working closely with our partner Shenzhen Lvshiyuan Biotechnology.
Recently, the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut, an agency of the German Federal Ministry of Health.
as research and control activities promoting the quality, efficacy and safety of biological medicines, have ranked our test kit as best in its class, ahead of nearly 100 other brands of LFT. Incredible CT score <25 100% - CT 25-30 95,7%. CT >30 40% and CT 17-36 86% were achieved.
