ICOx Innovations’ Client RYDE Holding Inc. Launches Post-Licensing Portal (PLP) on their KODAKOne platform

Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES

The KODAKOne PLP is able to handle up to 1 billion images per second

Los Angeles, CA, Oct. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ICOx Innovations Inc. (OTC: ICOX) (the “Company” or “ICOx Innovations”), which creates loyalty, reward, gaming, and payment cryptocurrencies for established companies that can benefit and grow their business through blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies, announced today that the blockchain-based KODAKOne Image Rights Management Platform has launched their Post-Licensing Portal (PLP), a key pillar of the KODAKOne Platform services.

The KODAKOne PLP offers intelligent web crawler and state of the art image recognition technology, offering photographers and rightsholders dependable image usage tracking online accompanied by a credible and user-friendly approach to help turn infringers into customers. The portal provides a simple stepwise process to make it easy and acceptable to license image usages retroactively and avoid unnecessary legal disputes. 

The platform uses AI to enrich image metadata, flag necessary rights clearances and predict licensing value based on similar known images. The soon to be launched smart contract implementation will allow for the scaling of licence management while the integration of the KODAKCoin will allow for instant settlement of licenses as well as improved monetization and liquidity for content creators.

“KODAKOne’s purpose is to legalize rather than criminalize unauthorized image usage and to ensure content creators get paid fairly for their work,” said Jan Denecke, CEO RYDE Holding Inc.. “The PLP is only the first of the platform services and will be enhanced with the KODAKOne blockchain registry and smart contract and management layer.” 

“The KODAKOne team has been laser focused on the release of the Post-License Portal,” said Bruce Elliott, President of ICOx Innovations. “It is the pillar of the KODAKOne platform combining AI with the blockchain which enables the platform to crawl 1 billion images per second. This has massive significance in image rights protection and how images are crawled and subsequently will be post-licensed going forward.”
