Zigen is a knowledge-based company with expertise covering a number of fields which include pharmaceutical, IT and international cyber-marketing. Hence, Zigen is well positioned to utilize these advanced know-hows to usher in the “Zigen Blockchain Marker” to help its clients and their customers to become well-informed purchasers. In this process, commercial trustworthiness is reinforced while fraudulence and deceits are banished.

Objective

To provide Zigen’s clients and marker applicants a clear and definitive demarcation for their products’ and their operations’ attributes based on thorough verifications of the truthfulness of their declared attribute evidence. The declaration would further be rendered immutable through their recording in the Zigen Blockchain Attestation.

Marker’s Coverage

For pharmaceutical, healthfood, food products and medical devices, Zigen Blockchain Markers covers four attributes and applicants are encouraged to apply for all four areas :

  1. Authenticity
  2. Traceability
  3. Quality
