What do you sell?
We offer device for road accident prevention (System 'Eye') and automotive data, gathered from the large number of System 'Eye' users. Here you can find information regarding our existing solution.
What is System 'Eye' exactly?
System 'Eye' is a solution, developed and supplied by Discoperi, which allows identification of road risk factors and prevention of road accidents. System 'Eye' consists of the following parts:
- A smart IoT device, called “EYE” Number of cutting-edge AI algorithms developed by Discoperi to recognize risky driving behavior
- A protocol, which allows fast data transmission among vehicles (FSMP) A protocol, which connects all devices into a single network (DCNV)
- System EYE is built on Discoperi Blockchain Protocol (DBP), although DBP may be used by different applications, including 3rd party.
Who are your partners in System Eye’s production?
We work with various global third parties, who help us develop and produce System 'Eye' - compatible devices.
What is the price of System 'Eye'?
System 'Eye' app is available for free. However, in order to run it, you may need to have a System 'Eye'-compatible device. You may consider buying System 'Eye'-compatible device, produced by Discoperi or our partners.
Can I get System 'Eye' for free?
Yes, you can download System 'Eye' app for iPhone and Android. The app will be available in the future here.
Where can I buy a System 'Eye' device?
You can buy our hardware product here.
Which technologies do you use in System 'Eye'?
We built System 'Eye' using AI, blockchain, big data and IoT for cars technologies. Additionally we developed number of internal protocols and solutions, however we don't talk about them too much.
What is a BlockChain and why do you need it?
Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology, which allows us to store the data, collected from the road in a safe, transparent and easy processible way, as such that people have a public ledger of all the data they have generated. It allows for a completely transparent environment, where drivers can sell their data based on a transparent, mistake-free reward process between the drivers and third parties.
Have you built your own BlockChain?
Yes, we are working on the building our own blockchain. As we didn't have the required capabilities in the beginning, we partnered with a leading global blockchain development institution, which builds for us Discoperi Blockchain Protocol.
What kind of blockchain would you like to build?
We would like to build a blockchain, which allows us to process large number of transactions with no or minimal cost. It will be a scalable, fast, secure and sophisticated automotive oriented blockchain. We work currently with a research institution to design the best Blockchain architecture.
Can you please give me an example of how you use BlockChain?
Discoperi uses the blockchain for enabling clear and transparent backward traction of the information provided by the drivers community and natural transactions in data monetization (between drivers and data buyers).
If you do all of this, you probably charge a lot?
No. We do not. We take a small commission from the data sale and only after the transaction has happened. We do not earn money from drivers, who collect the data and help making our roads safer. We want to empower the driver, give them ownership of their data and the ability to monetize it. Once there is a third party which wants to buy the data, we will charge him the fee.
What is an ICO?
ICO stands for Initial Coin Offering. It is a form of crowdfunding, in which a company releases its own tokens, in exchange for the capital raised. Later on, the tokens may be used for various purposes. Please check how you can use Discoperi tokens (DISCs) here.

This is my first time buying a token. What should I do?
- First of all, you need to have a crypto wallet, compatible with ERC-20 standard. You can create a new one at MyEtherWallet, Metamask or Trust, which are widely recognized as top Ether wallets.
- Once you have created your wallet you need buy Ethereum (ETH). The easiest way to buy cryptocurrencies, is to create an account and go through the verification process on Coinbase. After being verified, you will be able to add funds through various ways, including credit or debit cards, U.S. bank accounts, or even wire transfers of funds.
- Once you have ETH on your Coinbase account, you have to transfer it to your ERC-20 compatible wallet (see step 1).
- Once it is on your wallet, you can buy DISC tokens. For this you need to send your Ethers to the Discoperi wallet address, published on the official Discoperi web-site here.
How does payment in USD take place?
Payment in fiat currency may be executed through a wire transfer on the corporate bank account or as well as a credit card payment with Visa or Mastercard. Please be aware that credit card payment usually is a subject to transaction fee which will be deducted from your purchase.

Once an ICO campaign is completed, the token developers release their tokens on an exchange, where they can be traded.

A Utility token is a sub-type of tokens, which provides its owner a right to obtain a certain amount of goods or services from the releasing party.

Why do I need DISC tokens?
DISC token is a native token for Discoperi. This means that all transactions and rewards within Discoperi’s ecosystem will be executed in DISCs. When a driver sells his/her automotive data, he/she will be compensated in DISCs. In addition, the future driver will be able to exchange his/her DISC rewards for offerings from our partners, for example gasoline, insurance, maintenance, paid roads, new vehicles, etc.
How do I buy DISC tokens after the ICO?
After the ICO there are two ways to get DISC tokens:
- Buy DISCs from an exchange.
- Earn DISCs by generating and selling your automotive data.
What do you mean when you say that you support the Drivers Community?
