With the development in the world of internet and technology increasingly rapidly we can buy goods locally or abroad from an online shopping site. Surely this is very beneficial for us because it saves time and efficient. But can not deny there are some sites also sell counterfeit goods that in the name of goods from the original product. When the customer actually orders the item, the item can be delivered to the customer in the original box, and it seems everything is appropriate, but the item may be fake, and the buyer does not know it. To prevent the purchase of counterfeit goods is to check whether the sites that offer these items are trusted. Currently, it is practically impossible to verify this, as trademarks do not offer this solution. The current option to check if the item is genuine, is to go to the store where the original item is sold. However, if the goods are not genuine, the customer may be in trouble because of intentionally or unintentionally purchasing counterfeit goods through other websites or stores.
Along with the rapid development of technology, now we can easily check QR barkode and check for counterfeit or original goods. One of the list of sites using this technology is VALUS.

This is the main reason why Valus is profound and unique in its approach. The ICO date for its token sale is 1st of October 2017, thus all investors should purchase their products token before the end date of December 31st.This is to enable the blockchain technology framework which Valus operates navigate in the direction of more sustainable product sales and validity on the platform. This is Valus’s true purpose and essentially the benefit of been the most blockchain reliable platform for item verification. This is what the Valus project on the blockchain technology stands for and this is how it intends to make a difference in the blockchain platform.
Problem market,
The biggest problem on the market is that there is a lot of fake items on the market. These items can be fakes such as luxury watches, luxury handbags, jewellery and many items we daily use in our lives such as sports items.
Also, some websites pretend that they are selling genuine items but they are not. Other websites scam people in a way that they get customers’ money but never deliver an item to the customers.

Customer
The essence of VALUS is that customers can check goods via QR code. Customer gets basic information such as this item’s drawing, name, created item, item number, serial number, origin, previous owner (if any), if the item was stolen or not and his / her history From this item again (VALUS Verify).
When they buy goods, the customer has the opportunity to register the ownership of the goods. If the listed item is stolen, the customer can report the item and mark it as a stolen item. That means if someone wants to check the status of the goods, it will be visible on the platform. VALUS that this item was stolen (VALUS Ownership).
The customer will have the option to check whether the website is made reliably or not. Trademarks can verify websites that provide genuine merchandise as well as previous customers may provide reviews / experiences about websites (VALUS Websites).

Trademark
The trademark will add the item to the blockchain. This way they make things. Trademarks help customers make safer and better purchases by verifying websites and stores that sell real items. Trademarks also get reports from customers about suspicious websites and stores. If a trademark determines that a website or a store that is reported has harmed a customer, this website or store may be closed.

Retailer
Resellers can gain market reputation from trademarks based on verification. Customers are more secure when making a purchase.
