It would be near impossible for any party to misrepresent the journey of any given python skin.
STRATO automatically records its origins, movements, and associated agents. It also makes immutable and real-time notation of a skin’s value so as to represent any falsification on that account.
Not only would increased traceability drive a clear record of origin and sourcing, STRATO’s smart contracts feature could hold parties to certain agreed-upon terms and store and digitize relevant permits and licenses in order to prevent fraudulent copies.
For example, export permits could be stored directly on the network to strengthen the credibility of CITES certification.
Smart contracts could also be used to automatically trigger penalties if broken, and any breaches could be easily detected to create a level of deterrence.
Additionally, by clearly logging each movement of a python skin, STRATO also creates a clear record of any and all parties interacting with it. This inherently simplifies the complex supply chain at hand: by mapping it, STRATO renders it comprehensible and to an extent, easier to control.
