Our Story

Custos uses the Bitcoin blockchain to help media owners protect their content against piracy, by detecting the original infringer.

What problem are we solving

Digital media piracy is a $7b problem. Current solutions focus on restricting playback or prosecuting downloaders – with limited success.

How are we impacting the world

Cryptocurrency blockchains make it possible to decentralise the hunt for pirated content, and to securely identify the first uploader.
