A Blockchain and Smart Contract based network is used to triage, classify, and incentivize the collection of malware samples using crowdsourcing and machine learning.We have combined Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and Cybersecurity to provide the most cutting edge digital threat prevention and continuous protection the industry has to offer.
