3. THE VERYFILE PROJECT
The VERYFILE Project aims to develop a customized decentralized platform built on a smart contract solution that solves tracking, security, data accessibility, payment documentation and the monitoring of issues related to sensitive files and documents.
The Company is creating a global blockchain network for high-quality, sensitive file management. Customized smart contracts will be ‘cross-border’ and connect businesses worldwide. The VERYFILE token will enable an on-demand system that solves the pressing problems of tracking, securing and monitoring sensitive files and documents as well as solving issues of data accessibility and payment risk.
The VERYFILE platform will be a blockchain-based system for managing sensitive documents and data. It will allow users to store files via a decentralized cloud storage and manage them using a simplified user-interface. It will guarantee an intuitive use and the ability to track any transfer, ownership, verification and signature of customer documentation by means of a decentralized and encrypted ledger. In addition, a smart contract network will guarantee the possibility of automating the processes of creation, transfer of the files in question as well as complete corporate procedures and daily tasks.
The Company will also implement secondary functions such as the messaging service, email, call and videocall that will allow users to perform daily tasks and manage everything within the platform in an encrypted and secure way, without the need to transport confidential information outside the VERYFILE ecosystem.
The main system will be developed on a private blockchain and small ecosystems within the blockchain itself will guarantee independent data management of the various client companies.
The VERYFILE tokens will be generated on the Ethereum Blockchain with an Ethereum Standard ERC20 smartcontract.
ERC20 allows the immediate issue of the VERYFILE tokens during the VERYFILE Token Sale and the quotation on an exchange platform within a few months from the VERYFILE Token Sale ending.
For any further and more detailed information related to the VERYFILE Project, the User shall refer to the latest version of the White Paper published on the Website.
The User understands and accepts that the development and execution of the VERYFILE Project is solely and exclusively of the competence of the Company.
The Company shall be entirely free in its way of developing and executing the VERYFILE Project, in particular (and among other measures) by engaging any subcontractors it would deem necessary to perform the entire or partial development and execution of the VERYFILE Project.
The scope of the development work will be dependent on, and triggered by, the amount received in cryptocurrency as result of the VERYFILE Token Sale.
The User understands and agrees that, for the purpose of the development and execution of the VERYFILE Project, the Company will receive a sum in cryptocurrency that will cover expenses, charges and other costs that may arise in relation to the Company and/or its subcontractors as part of the development and execution of the VERYFILE Project.
