How does it work?
All transactions, repairings, and information about an instrument are securely recorded in an immutable ledger.
Our algorithms prevent an instrument to be registered more than once. Stolen instruments can't re-enter the system.
Only the legal owner of the instrument can decide what info to share and with whom. eCauda encrypts all your info!
