PLATFORM

The PlanChain platform includes a DLT Proof of Authorship and Ownership Engine to create an immutable record of the authorship and ownership of an IP asset (e.g., a copyrighted asset, such as a digital photograph) on the VechainThor Blockchain. After receiving the blockchain certificate, the user may add an NFT of their IP asset to the IP Vault for secure storage or to the IP Marketplace for monetizing their IP. The PlanChain platform will have a partner network of IP professionals around the world. The user will have the option to work with one of our partner IP professionals if the user wants to register their IP in one or more official government offices.

  • User upload one or more files associated with IP asset
  • User provide PLAN utility tokens
  • SHA-256 algorithm generates one or more hashes
  • Optionally use fee delegation (such MPP for VTHO), or atomic swaps
  • Generate immutable record on VechainThor Blockchain of the authorship and ownership of the IP asset, including a timestamp
  • Generate DLT or blockchain certificate for user to document the authorship and ownership
  • User has option to create a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) of their IP asset

After receiving the blockchain certificate, the user may add an NFT of their IP asset to the IP Vault for secure  storage or to the IP Marketplace for monetizing their IP. The PlanChain platform will have a partner network  of IP professionals around the world. The user will have the option to work with one of our partner IP professionals if the user wants to register their IP in one or more official government offices.

      for sale/license/etc.
    • Many other use cases for monetizing IP assets
  • IP asset pooling – users can pool two or more IP assets for sale or license as a group
  • Muti-party IP asset pooling – multiple users (such as multiple companies or individuals) can pool mulitiple IP assets for sale or license as a group and share the proceeds per the terms of an agreement
  • Automatic transfer of ownership – automatically transfer the proof of authorship and ownership from the seller(s) to the buyer(s)

The PlanChain platform includes an IP Vault that allows users to securely store their files associated with their IP assets, blockchain certificates, NFTs, draft documents, contracts, among others.

  • Private Vault – secure storage that is only accessible by the user
  • Linked Vault – secure storage where the user can enable restricted access to certain vault documents to linked accounts, such as a linked account to an IP professional working with the user.

SNAP BLOCK

The PlanChain ecosystem also includes a Mobile Application for IP asset management called SNAPBlock that integrates most or all of the features of the DLT Proof of Authorship and Ownership Engine, the IP Vault, and THORM: IP Marketplace. Furthermore, the Mobile Application offers unique and innovative features (patent pending) for the user that is on to go. For example:

  • User snaps a digital photograph (or records a video or other media)
  • Automatically (or based on user input) generate a record on the blockchain for proof of ownership of the photo
    • Automatic option enabled – instantly and seamlessly performed after capturing photo
    • User input option enabled – option (e.g., button) presented to the user immediately after capturing photo, and operation performed instantly after user confirms
  • Automatic generation of blockchain certificate
  • User has option to instantly create a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) of their photo
  • User has the option to add a digital signature to their photo to indicate a record of ownership has been added to the blockchain (and optionally provide other metadata)
  • User has the option to instantly add their IP asset to the IP Vault and to their profile or portfolio in THORM, the IP Marketplace, in order to monetize their IP asset

All transactions using the Mobile Application will be powered by the PLAN utility token and the VechainThor Blockchain, and may optionally use fee delegation (such MPP for VTHO) or atomic swaps.

ltllogofinal

LTL was devised as a curated platform for trendy and modern hotels with personality and appealing places for dining and entertainment. Positioned in a niche sector, LTL is complementary to extensive travel companies. LTL focuses on a hand-picked selection of lifestyle activities with an emphasis on exploration.
Part of LTL’s underlying magic is sharing stories through our users’ lived experiences; this process is a subtle way of sharing information, which does not seem like creating and curating content. LTL invites storytellers and travelers to join us to expand our collection of exclusive places to sleep, eat, and play. Planchain’s own CMO explains the benefits of this partnership, “We want to offer Planchain services to our LTL community. We feel technology is destined to challenge the status quo; blockchain is helping us explore ways to ensure artists and creators paid fairly, while protecting their original work.”
