Case study: Hacken Saved Nucleus Vision from Phishing Attack
Company Name: Nucleus Vision
Company description: IoT technology to create real-time customer intelligence for stores
Service: Anti-Phishing Protection
How do you imagine the perfect shopping experience? Can it be entering the store or any other institution and seeing an ideal dress, a pair of shoes, car, house, laptop, or any other thing without spending hours and months looking for them? Or something even more whimsical, receiving recommendations regarding the perfect jeans or sofa that are based on information about your taste, preferences, way of life, and style? It sounds like a futuristic utopia, but, in fact, this reality is almost here, and we will have an opportunity to enjoy it rather soon.
The owners of these shops will have a clear idea about their customers. Thus, they will be able to serve people perfectly, save their time, and receive sincere loyalty. Nucleus Vision is the company that makes this utopia closer, and Hacken will carry out its mission of protecting the future from the evil cybercriminals!
What is Nucleus Vision?
Nucleus Vision is a system of contactless identification, which allows retailers to analyze the identity of the client and offer them a higher level of service. The Nucleus Vision uses the Ethereum Network to conduct all the transactions and real-time sensors to obtain customer data necessary for retailers and other traditional businesses. According to the developers of the project, today, offline retailers are unlikely to provide personal price and other offers for their customers, due to the impossibility to distinguish one from the other. The Nucleus Vision platform will help to formulate recommendations that are of interest to a particular client and determine an acceptable level of price for them.
Buyers will receive nCash tokens for each visit to stores equipped with the Nucleus Vision system. nCash is the decentralized cryptocurrency of the Nucleus Vision ecosystem, which is used to perform transactions of various kinds. In the first quarter of 2018, the Nucleus Vision launched their ICO releasing 10 billion nCash tokens with a hardcap of $40 million. At that time they needed Hacken’s help.
