Company

36. What is .arianee?

One liner : Arianee is an protocol based on blockchain technology to manage digital ownership and authenticity certificates for valuable object.

 

Arianee aspires to become the world’s leading universal protocol for the management of digital certificates of ownership and authenticity for objects. Our vision is to build the first perpetual, anonymous and trusted record of all global assets, enabling a revolutionary marketing link between owners and brands.

37. What makes .arianee unique compared to its competitors?

We believe that adoption of blockchain solutions will only take-off when user interfaces are as simple as the tools users currently use. This is why Arianee will not only develop the blockchain protocol but also a suite of applications for all users. The first two applications developed by Arianee will be:

  • The Owner’s App, a mobile application where users can register and manage their products,
  • The Brand Terminal, a web-interface where brands can manage their authenticity certificates and communication with product owners.

The Arianee founding team has decades of experience building and scaling web based user centric platforms whether at Vestiaire Collective, Overblog or Teads.

38. Why does .arianee need to be on a blockchain?

We believe blockchain technology is a means to achieving a better internet where users have control over their data. There is an emerging demand from users to regain control of their data and it will keep on growing. Our hybrid technical solution uses a blockchain to provide a trustless decentralized database of valuable goods certificates, and more traditional centralized servers to build efficient and easy-to-use interfaces.

39. Will .arianee have its own blockchain?

Yes, Arianee develops its own blockchain. For now, the Arianee blockchain is a copy of the ethereum code-base adapted to fit the requirements of a Proof of Authority consensus mechanism. We however reserve the right to use a different technology in the future if a more mature solution was to emerge.

40. What will the token be used for?

ARIA is a utility token used to pay for specific types of actions on the Arianee blockchain: issuing authenticity certificates and sending messages to owners. This token is introduced to reduce the risk of spam. We have voluntarily designed the protocol so as to not charge owners because we are convinced that owners need to embrace the product and use it as much as they want if Arianee is to be successful.

41. How will .arianee use blockchain technology in the product?

Arianee is a hybrid system using both a blockchain and more traditional servers when they are most efficient.

 

We use a decentralized blockchain to securely store the unalterable digital identity of authentic objects. While we use a Proof of Authority consensus mechanism with a limited number of nodes allowed to seal blocks, anybody can run a validation node to audit the integrity of the Arianee blockchain. In extreme cases, this would also enable anybody to fork the Arainee blockchain and use it to replicate the Arianee platform.

42. Is there a public roadmap?

Yes. You can find it on the website arianee.org

43. Do you have a prototype or a beta?

Yes we have a prototype of the blockchain running on an alphanet. Moreover, owners can already download the Owner’s app to register their products and earn bonus ARIA.

44. Are you going to have a beta?

Yes in Q1 2019. You can find a detailed roadmap on arianee.org

45. When will the product go live?

The Arianee platform will be live in Q2 2019. You can find a detailed roadmap on arianee.org
