Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is photochain a new blockchain?

    Photochain is a DApp, a decentralised application, built on top of the Ethereum blockchain and IPFS protocol. Photochain is its own closed system that operates on the computing power of the ethereum virtual machine.

  • What is the DCC and how does it reduce copyright issues?

    The Digital Copyright Chain is to be a database that is stored on the blockchain. The purpose of this database is to maintain data that securely links a digital work to its artist. Such a system will reduce the number of copyright infringements as ownership is easily identifiable.

  • How can I get involved as a contributor?

    Please contact us if you would like to contribute digital photography to our alpha version (to be released Q1 2018). Photochain V.1. will be live in Q2 2018, where you will be able to sign up directly on the Dapp.

  • What is the motivation for photochain?

    Through our own personal dissatisfaction of dealing with the complicated nature of off-chain photostocks. Where you must agree to a range of conditions imposed on you, only for you to take home a small percentage of your works. Photochain is motivated to provide a fair marketplace for the trading of digital works.

  • Will the Photon token be exchange listed and tradable?

    We will also build our own internal exchange mechanism in due course. Due to the popularity, we assume that exchanges will be interested to list the Photon tokens also on their exchanges.
