Abstract
Some of the worlds most prized historical and cultural artifacts still lay buried and forgotten lost
to the sea s. Efforts to recover and preserve the se trea sures cost millions of dollar s and often result
in legal proceedings with multiple parties fighting for control. The current landscape of the marine
archaeology space is rife with challenges and chaos. To build a sustainable industry that welcomes
those with an intere st in preserving and uncovering valuable artifacts, Piece of 8 (PO8) is
introducing to the world the merging of marine archaeology and blockchain technology,
something never seen before.
Welcome to PO8. PO8 is a blockchain eco system democratizing and decentralizing the mar ine
archaeology industry. PO8 introduces three scalable technologies capable of taking ocean
exploration to new heights in search of historical artifacts, and provide decentralized solutions to
registration, authentication, and transfer of the world’s most prized artifacts.
First, PO8 creates smar...

Introduction
Three million—that's the rough estima te number of ships under water today according to the
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNE SCO). And, when you
consider 70% of the planet’s surface is water, you have a lot of ocean floor to cover if you are
planning to find a sunken ship. But, the real question on everyone’s mind is just how much
sunken artifact treasures are down there? Billions worth. Maybe trillions, some will argue.
While no one really knows, you can be certain there are enough artifacts buried in our ocean floors
to create a billion-dollar treasure hunting industry—an industry that’s been rapidly evolving with
technological advances in sonar, magnetometers, GPS and autonomous vehicles (ROV/AUV),
among others. This is no hobby for the average adventure seeker or coin collector. The cost for
deep sea recovery expeditions can e asily go into the millions. This barrier to entry make s it
feasible for only a handful of companies with resources a...

Introduction
The technology supporting PO8 consists of four client applications:
ERC-20 Full Wallet
Buyer Client App
Seller Client App
Data Mining App
Three backend systems are used:
PHARS
PO8 Historical Artifact Registry System
HOAP and GAAS
The Historical Open Auction Platform and Government Artifact Auction System
MADS
The Maritime Artifact Data System
This whitepaper outlines the problems the m arine archaeology industry faces today, the PO8
solution and our plan to implement it. We will provide a comprehensive view of our goals for the
market, discuss the technology behind our solution and layout our government outreach plans to
comply with regulatory requirements.

The Challenges
Commercial salvaging, aka treasure hunting, peaked during the 1970s with major discoveries in
the 1980s. Those included the
Nuestra Señora de Atocha
and the
S.S. Central Ame rica,
both
discovered in 1985 and each carrying millions worth of gold and silver. But the ac complishments
of a few have also created mixed feelings in the marine archaeology world. Questions have been
raised about what should be disturbed under the sea and the consequence of such expeditions.
Cultural Heritage Preservation
It’s no secret commercial salvors have received a bad rap within the marine archaeology
community. Salvors are portrayed as de stroyers of cultural and historica l relic s, all in the name of
financial gains. Some say they have little regard for the archaeological composition and academic
value of shipwreck sites, resulting in the desecration of important underwater sites. The flip side
of the argument justifies the need for commercial salvaging and its financial m...

The PO8 Solution
Democratizing Recovery of Artifacts
PO8 seeks to raise the standard of excellence in under water recovery expeditions. We will do this
by promoting responsible commercial salvage and inviting those who share our perspective from
around the world to participate in the recovery, conservation, exhibition and ownership of found
artifacts and treasures. Our mission is to focus on the recovery and conservation of these items
while also maintaining the integrity of the marine environment in which they are found.
By tokenizing PO8 salvage operations, token holders will be able to perform proof of stake bounty
tasks he lping in recovery efforts. Bounty ta sks will include data m ining, which PO8 collects from
a range of sources, helping expedition teams pinpoint locations of possible shipwreck site s. Some
of these data points include, but are not limited to, shipwreck, sonar, sand and silt particle s and
geo seafloor mapping. Information on the shifting of sand, tidal waves and hurricanes will al...
