Swiss Startup brings pets into the Blockchain
The Swiss startup CogniPet™ plans to store the identity of dogs and cats in the Blockchain with the aim of reducing potentially misleading and fraudulent practices.
Breeders can deposit certificates, pedigrees and medical documents on their dogs or cats in the CogniPet app which is open to potential buyers. A breeder rating is also listed to support decision-making. In addition to these fundamental functions, the Android and iOS CogniPet app is also intended to enrich the digital lifestyle of modern users throughout their pet's lives, for example with intelligent photo and social media functions. Of particular value is that the image recognition capability of the app should also help to quickly reunite missing or found animals to their owners.
Behind the Swiss startup CogniPet™, based in Zurich, is a ten-member international team consisting of blockchain, IT, marketing and legal specialists. The business activity consists of the development and marketing of a touching app for pet lovers, with commission-based purchase mediation between breeders and owners including a rating function, healthy pet life information, and interactive social media. Thanks to blockchain and AI technology, the animals pets in the system receive a certified digital identity with traceable genealogical and medical data.
