As indicated above, KodakCoin will be implemented as an in-house cryptocurrency in KodakOne. This system uses blockchain technology to make managing and protecting the copyrights of photographers and photographic agencies around the world easier - like bitcoin, it will be an "encrypted digital record book". Photographers can archive and add new pictures that will be protected and backed up by the blockchain network structure (a large network of computers).
At the same time, KodakOne will serve as a licensing platform where both professional and amateur photographers can sell licences for their photos. After the sale of royalties, the author will be paid in the cryptocurrency KodakCoin. As was shown recently, just the reports of the introduction of blockchain technology was reflected by a 120% increase in the value of Kodak's shares in a single day.
Another great advantage is that KodakOne promises constant protection of all registered images. It uses special software that will search through the Internet for a specific image based on the IP address link. If it encounters an unlicensed image, it warns the author first and then helps him or her to get the royalties he or she is owed.
