Foreword
We are presenting to you StopTheFakes, the world’s first decentralized service
designed to detect counterfeiting and infringement of intellectual property rights,
copyright, and related rights. Our project aims to bring together right holders and
consumers in their fight against piracy products and content. Companies will have
the opportunity to detect, localize and document violations of their rights quickly
and efficiently, and law-abiding consumers will be rewarded for their assistance in
combating piracy.
Our team is on an ambitious mission: to create a global system facilitating the fight
against counterfeiting and piracy all over the world. Our goal is to minimize the cost
of detecting violations and help brand owners to come into direct contact with
consumers. Fighting against violations of intellectual property rights will result in
reduced advertising expenses and increased profits for law-abiding companies
while hitting organized crime hard.
Our short-term pla...

Introduction
StopTheFakes is a
Blockchain-based decentralized service aiming to detect
counterfeiting
and infringement of intellectual property rights, created on the
Ethereum smart contract platform. Blockchain technology has been implemented
by using the open source license. The project has its own token, which is the only
method of payment within its framework.
Our basic idea is to build a completely transparent and reliable system that could
transfer data from users to right holders. We assume responsibility for providing the
necessary infrastructure and bringing together those who want to learn about any
infringement of their rights and those who can provide this information due to their
geographic location or other factors. We assume responsibility for ensuring that
customers remunerate providers and retain part of the remuneration as a
commission fee.
Tokens issued by us will be the only means of payment that customers will purchase
for remuneration purposes. Th...

Market and Industry
Throughout the centuries, humankind has invented technologies and streamlining
processes to obtain more products with less efforts and resources. History can be
divided into periods from one industrial revolution to another. A breakthrough
occurred in the 21st century. The development of science and technology helped
reduce expenses to the minimum. Companies started spending more money on
advertisement than on production, and the century itself became known as the Age
of Information.
Counterfeiting and infringements
of intellectual property rights
Marketers estimate that companies will spend $547,370 billion on advertising
goods and services in 2017. These expenses are not cost-efficient, though.
According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development
(OECD), counterfeits worth $461 billion will be sold in the world, and this is only a
low estimate. Havocscope, a project specialized in the study of the black market,
reports that the volume o...

What follows are the estimates of the annual turnover of counterfeit products and
infringements of intellectual property rights on a global scale:
$63
billion
Pirated software
$169
billion
Electronic devices
$
200
billion
Medicine
$49
billion
Food
$45
billion
Automobile components
and spare parts
$34
billion
Children’s toys
$12,5
billion
Music
$12
billion
Clothes
$12
billion
Footwear
$8,5
billion
Cable TV programs
$8,1
billion
Videogames
Given below are the estimates of losses suffered by Great Britain only that fell short
of 60.000 workplaces:
£4,2
billion
Loss of profit by retailers
£3,8
billion
Tax losses by the government
£8,6
billion
Loss of profit by holders
of intellectual property rights

...

These figures are a rough estimate, and obtaining more accurate and reliable data is
impossible. This is since most trafficking in fake products and pirated content
occurs on the black market and is controlled by organized crime.
The big problem is that a considerable part of counterfeits is sold at reduced prices.
Holders of intellectual property rights not only lose part of the turnover but are also
affected by price competition on the part of the violators.
The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development details the
geographical distribution of losses from infringements of intellectual property
rights (% of total counterfeit sales by country) as follows:
20%
USA
15%
Italy
12%
France

The Cryptocurrency Market
In 2017, the most successful (as of today) cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, reached several
times its all-time highs in fiat currency exchange rate. An explosive-like growth in
popularity of ‘virtual money’ resulted in the de-facto recognition of this trend’s
viability in financial technologies by government bodies and public institutions.
Initially, cryptocurrencies were the prerogative of geeks, developers, and
enthusiasts, which lead to the spread of numerous myths. To discard these
misconceptions and deal with reliable, scientifically proven figures, all data on the
cryptocurrency market presented in this document are taken from
The Global
Cryptocurrency Benchmarking Study,
a research study by Dr. Garrick Hileman and
Michel Rauchs, published by the Cambridge University in April 2017. VISA helped
these researchers in their work. Data from other sources is indicated separately.
Currently, the number of active cryptocurrency wallet users varies from 2,90...

Cryptocurrencies
Bitcoin was the first decentralized cryptocurrency operating since January 2009. It
was followed by Namecoin, launched two years later, in April 2011. Now, thousands
of various cryptocurrencies are in existence, but only a small fraction of them are
actively traded on exchanges and exchanged for fiat currency.
As of March 2017, the total cryptocurrency market capitalization surpassed $25
billion. With some $18 billion, Bitcoin captures the lion’s share of this market. A
dramatic growth followed, and the market grew five-fold in less than six months.
According to the data from
coinmarketcap.com
, as of September 16, 2017 the
figures stand as follows:
