Group Project is on a mission to defend all brands big and small, and to protect consumers from counterfeits by implementing a fail-safe authentication system using blockchain technology. The central questions it answers are: “Who is the manufacturer?” “Who is authorized to sell it?” “When was it produced?” “When did it arrive at this store?” “Is it the real thing?”

About Group Project

PROBLEM

The impact counterfeit goods have on the fashion and pharmaceutical industry is estimated to be $700 billion/year. This does not include collateral damage caused by counterfeit goods: legal battles between brands and consumers, additional cost to repair or replace counterfeit goods, medical problems caused by inferior materials used by counterfeit goods, and even death.

SOLUTION

Group Project’s authentication system, built on the blockchain, will verify genuine goods throughout the supply chain from the manufacturer, to the retailer, and to the consumers using mobile applications powered by GRUP tokens.

Features

The Company’s GRUP tokens are used to charge the mobile application and allow users (retailers & consumers, and third-party sellers) to scan the Crypto-TagTM to determine the authenticity of goods.

  • Authenticate Original Manufacturer
  • Proof of Supply Chain Chronology
  • User Registration and Data for Mfg
  • Mobile App

Technical Info

Group Project integrates four major components to fight the counterfeit industry (U.S. Patent Pending).

  • Blockchain technology
  • Crypto-TagTM - a crypto-enabled NFC tag,
  • GRUP Tokens
  • Mobile Application

As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project? What do you think about idea?
I am the CMO of Bonafi, formerly known as Group Project. I joined Bonafi because I have a personal vendetta against counterfeit goods.

When I was younger, I spent a ridiculous amount of my income collecting Air Jordans. I've been a victim of many fake Jordans throughout the years, and I always believed there was a better way for people like me to protect ourselves from fakes.

Bonafi is the solution to combat counterfeits.

Summary

You’ll like Group Project IO if you want a small e-shopping business or you have physical products that need some verification. This ICO has great growth opportunities and has a reliable system behind it. In conclusion, this is mid-term ICO that will start to grow once it receives more news and attention.

Positives
Enhanced Security: The crypto-tags have a two-layer security process. If the crypto-tag is physically removed, then the digital tag is destroyed. This will show that the product is tampered with.
Clear Project Goal: Group Project’s solution is simple, and it creates a network where users are buying realistic products. People who are creating their own products or their own brand, view Group Project as a great security system.
Unverified Products: Group Project’s system stops counterfeit products from being sold. For example, if a counterfeiter tries to place a verified Crypto-Tag on a fake product, the verified product will be unsellable.
Negatives
Slow Growth: While it’s an interesting platform and project idea, Group Project might take a few years before it gains mass market appeal.

Group Project is a new ICO that proposes to establish a line of defense for traders, manufacturers, retailers, and consumers using a crypto-tag as its weapon of choice.

Group Project’s fight against counterfeit goods hinges on its proprietary device, the Crypto-Tag.

This device is a digital tag that stores manufacturer-specific data so that the item that the tag is attached to can be identified as genuine.

This data will include who the original manufacturer was, when and where it was made, and when it arrived at an authorized reseller.

Transactional data will be entered into the blockchain at every step of the way through the supply chain.

On the consumer side, the end user will use an app installed on an NFC-enabled device to scan the item and verify the data provided by the tag.

Competition

There are currently a couple of ICOs operating in the same environment as Group Project. Stopthefakes and Checkitsreal offer similar propositions. Still, it stands to reason that the more ICOs fighting counterfeited goods, the harder it will be for dodgy items to reach the market.

In other words, there is still breathing space for this type of ICO, which may make all the difference for its long-term survival.

Conclusion

The fight against counterfeiting rages on, both online and offline. It is an uphill battle, as bad guys always find new ways or new products to imitate and sell. This dynamic requires a multi-pronged defense, played out across the blockchain battlefield and elsewhere.

Group Project enters the fray with effective weaponry (at least on paper), in the form of the Crypto-Tag. This device should guarantee the authenticity of a given product, as long as that product exists in the blockchain.

If there is one criticism that can be leveled against this ICO, is its very name. ‘Group Project’ is a completely nondescript term, which could mean anything. The ICO needs to offer a better definition of itself.
