Alitheon protects precious metals.

From illegal gold mines in the Amazon, to smuggled African gold, to fake Chinese gold, the world of precious metals is fraught with illegal activity. FeaturePrint enables you and your customers to authenticate and uniquely identify your real and legal precious metals, from the rest. Trace your metals from bar to recycling and ensure provenance. 


Try it

From cast gold bars, to minted silver, or blocks of platinum, you can take a photo of your product. With that one photo, our system will automatically create a baseline FeaturePrint (a digital fingerprint) that is unique and specific to that one item out of many. Along your production line, throughout your supply chain, or in the marketplace, you or others will be able to take another photo of that precious metal item, and immediately authenticate and identify it out of the millions, where it came from, and where else it has been. All with just pictures taken with your mobile phone.

Businesses lose trillions of dollars each year because individual items are not correctly identified or worse, swapped or manipulated along the way. Even those with exotic labels, etchings, or handling procedures. With Alitheon’s FeaturePrint, your products are reliably authenticated and identified through simple photo taking. With only a camera, our software can identify the inherent digital fingerprint that exists on every item. The true, unrefutable identity of each item is unlocked without any physical contact or alterations.

With FeaturePrint you don't have to worry that a bad actor has introduced unauthorized or illegal gold cast with your logo and serial number on it.

With FeaturePrint, your customers can be assured they are buying authentic and authorized precious metals that you stand behind. Be it directly from you, your distributor, or on the secondary market, eliminate fake and grey market precious metals from making their way to your customers.

With FeaturePrint you can take ownership of your aftermarket and secondary markets by ensuring authenticity and provenance for yourselves and your customers.

With FeaturePrint you can track and trace each individual bar from birth to end of life recycling and melting, ensuring that your environmental commitments are met.


the simple process

Take A Picture

Just take a photo of your part, product, item, (or even the back of your hand). Use a mobile phone, industrial camera, or perhaps even the existing cameras on your production or assembly line.


Our algorithms identify and codify the exact attributes and features in the surface area from the manufacturing process. Our system creates a one-of-a-kind digital FeaturePrint that can be used for authentication, identification, or traceability. The ONE of millions. Just like your fingerprint. No changing, adding, or manipulating. No pixy dust, holograms, barcodes, or stickers. Just the naked truth.

Authenticate, Identify, Trace

You, your customer, your distributer, your quality control, or anyone you choose, can take a picture of the item and authenticate it, identify it, or trace it easily and flawlessly. No special scanners, readers, or tools. Just a camera. Even the one on your phone. The integrity of the match is preserved. With digital identities, customers verify your products with high trust and reliability. In OEM or aftermarket relationships, easy-to-use traceability services differentiate your brand while protecting margins and fostering loyalty.
