Copytrack, the blockchain powered copyright registry, mediation and enforcement platform is preparing to enter the second round of the crowdsale as the highly successful pre-sale comes to an end. The Copytrack ICO will go live January 10, 2018.

CEO and founder Marcus Schmitt says: "Blockchain technology provides a historic opportunity to solve the century-old problem of copyright infringement. The Global Copyright Registry enables creators to register, track and monetize their work without the need of intermediaries, making the multi-billion-dollar digital licensing industry more transparent and fair towards both buyers and sellers."

Copytrack also boosts an impressive group of advisors that have served in similar capacities at PriceWaterhouseCoopers, General Electric, Yahoo!, Flickr, Germany's Myra Security, Scentan Venturs, and Bitcoin Tokyo.

A Global Copyright Registry To Solve Image Theft Forever

Copytrack revolutionizes how creators protect, track and monetize their work by using blockchain and smart contracts technology. Founded in 2014 in Berlin, Germany, the company is today the global market leader in protecting photographers from image theft.

While Copytrack runs its proprietary image recognition technology to crawl images on the web and detect copyright infringements, the company acknowledges that the digital image market is broken. 85% of images used online are without a valid license and existing protection technologies, such as watermarks and tracking pixels, are easily overgone.

Copytrack is the global market leader in image theft protection, operating in over 140 countries and generating a claim volume of over $20,000,000 in 2017 alone. The upcoming Global Copyright Registry solves image theft by registering images on the Blockchain, thereby enabling photographers to protect, track and monetize their work.

How Consumers, Business & Industry Leaders and VC's Can Participate In The ICO 

Copytrack's excellent track record and innovative roadmap had all its allocated tokens (Ethereum digital currency) Phase one (Presale 1) sold out, raising over $ 4 Mio. from over 2,900 backers.

The ICO will start with a 0.1 ETH minimum contribution. Participants can take part in the ICO on copytrack.io.

Participants can simply go to copytrack.io and click the "buy token" button. They will have to provide some data in order to be whitelisted. After a short while a confirmation email will be sent to them, allowing them to buy token using ETH by clicking on the link.
