What utility does $ILOCK have? Why should I buy it?

We believe that $ILOCK token will grow in value because it's tied to tangible outcomes for our users and customers. For example, our enterprise customers will use $ILOCK to buy threat data from us—and our users will be paid for generating that threat data while staying protected with our browser extension. This creates an immediate market for our token.

Everyone who joins into the project early will be part of that growth journey and we want early adopters to see our ecosystem grow into more and more products that benefit individuals, enterprises, and most importantly, Web3.$ILOCK Ecosystem ParticipantsSecurity Stakers: Sometimes our AI Threat Detection needs some human assistance to determine if a page is dangerous or not. So when users help improve our data set by improve our threat detection, you earn  $ILOCK tokens. Interlock also allows you to stake for yield, as an added bonus.

URL Scanning Fees: Tokens will be used to scan URLs, upgrade product functionality, and customize experience. Interlock will subsidize the scanning fee for the first 18 months.

ThreatSlayer Users: Users are rewarded with $ILOCK for sharing anonymized security data

Bounty Hunters: An underground group of power users that scour the web and click on everything dangerous or malicious-looking. Think bug bounties, but easier to find. They’ll help determine what’s safe or not, and earn $ILOCK tokens for doing the dirty work.

Enterprise & Data Platform Customers: Our platform is also sold to large enterprises. As the enormity of our threat intelligence network grows, our value to our enterprise customers increases. We also sell additional security data products to enterprises, who can then buy and stake tokens for licensing discounts.

Has Interlock been audited?

Of course. Being that we're a security company we take auditing, both from a smart contract perspective, as well as from a security perspective, very seriously. Our smart contracts are have recently completed and passed an audit from Kudeleski Security.

What is Interlock?

Traditional security providers have failed to address the persistent issues of phishing and social engineering attacks, which cause substantial financial harm to everyday internet users. Despite spending billions of dollars on security ($8.7 billion for consumers and $88.7 billion for enterprises last year), Web2 solutions remain siloed and ineffective. It is time for a new approach that involves collaboration between all stakeholders to create a safer internet for everyone.

Introducing Interlock, blockchain-based security products for individuals and enterprises that  enable this necessary Web3 collaboration. By leveraging blockchain technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI), we harness the power of the crowd to share essential threat intelligence data between consumers and enterprises, resulting in a safer internet for all.
