Q&A with the Evident Proof Team
ICO Alert: For those who are not familiar with Evident Proof, can you explain what it is, and what the team aims to accomplish?
Evident Proof: Evident Proof is a platform that will store any type of data/data event and turn it into immutable proof. Court ready data proof certificates are created to prove events. Evident Proof creates ERC20 tokens and receipts as the data is stored.
ICO Alert: How does the Evident Proof token (EPT) function within the platform, and why is it needed?
Evident Proof: EPT is used to pay for data events, reports, and data proof certificates. The use of the proof certificates enables operational efficiencies in the platform and removes forex overhead.
ICO Alert: Proof of Evidence has been the focus of a number of projects, from simple portals like proofofexistence.com to more full-featured projects like Factom and NEM’s Prover. What sets Evident Proof’s product apart from these other projects?
Evident Proof: Evident Proof is the only one who can accept any form of data and will construct a customized verification bundle. Evident is the only one that dynamically generates EPT tokens as the data is stored/by the storage of the data. The tokens are the property of the data provider.
ICO Alert: EPT runs on a two-blockchain system: a public blockchain and a private blockchain. What does Evident Proof gain from this, and what are the drawbacks?
Evident Proof: It provides a secondary level of verification, and the use of private chain increases speed.
ICO Alert: I can see multiple applications for Proof of Evidence being integrated with other networks. For example, a Proof of Location network (e.g. XYO) combined with Proof of Evidence could, especially with multiple recording-capable nodes, verify that a video from a certain place and time is unaltered — while a Proof of Evidence network alone could likely only verify a file was held in a certain form at a certain time, without saying whether it was altered before inclusion in the chain.
What potential integrations do you see for Evident Proof’s future? Or do you have other ideas for extending the capabilities of the network in ways similar to my example above?
Evident Proof: Good example. We are also integrating with IOT platforms to record environmental data and supply chain platforms.
ICO Alert: Your marketing launch in the U.S. and Asia is coming up in Q4 of this year. Can you tell us the key points of your launch plans?
Evident Proof: No, this is confidential commercial information. At the moment I can say we will launch in Germany and Asia first.
ICO Alert: You have live demos of the Evident Proof Platform every Tuesday at 10:00 BST and Thursday 16:00 BST. Where can contributors see the demos, and when can they expect to fully use the platform? Please feel free to share any recent updates.
Evident Proof: The platform is ready to use now and is running live clients. Please see the SWYTCH.IO press release.
