What is Photochain

Photochain is a blockchain-based P2P stock photography platform.

The Photochain platform will employ the Photochain DApp, built on the Ethereum blockchain, and machine learning to meet the specific requirements for stock photography. The Photochain DApp is designed to facilitate direct communication between artists and their audiences. After verification of their identity, the artists will be able to use the Photochain platform to sell their works at a desired priced. Any Photochain user will be able to act as a buyer. Buyers will not have to provide any persona information. 

The Photochain ecosystem will also have moderators who will be resolving issues and sustain the community. The moderators, together with Photochain Governance, will be responsible for the platform stability. 

The developers have envisaged a ranking system that is supposed to motivate and encourage the participants. For example, all Photochain sellers will receive 1 point to their ranking for each piece sold. One point equals 0.1 Photochain token (PHT).

The Photochain token (PHT) is an ERC20 utility token that will be used for all transactions and rewards. 

Photochain mainnet launch is scheduled for Q2 2018.
