Open source modules you can trust
PrestaTrust is the first trust infrastructure dedicated to the open source economy, bringing transparency to the ecosystem. PrestaTrust is our solution to make the community feel confident about its work and the other’s, by adding an extra layer of trust upon modules.
The power of Blockchain and Smart contracts
The Blockchain is a digital ledger of transactions allowing to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value, like modules. It conveys trust between entities who know nothing about each other but need each other to exchange module licences. We have created Smart contracts on the Ethereum Blockchain to record modules data, making this chain of information immutable and true in real time.
A badge to prove code authenticity
We use the blockchain technology to guarantee secure and irrefutable authentication of the open source code. On PrestaShop Addons Marketplace, a PrestaTrust badge indicates which modules have been authenticated by a smart contract. The code authenticity is ensured by a code check: when the module is installed on the store, a digital signature of this module is calculated and compared to the original one. The intention is to make sure no code change happened between purchase and installation.
A tool for sales traceability
A module’s life is made of events such as creation, updates and sales. PrestaTrust records them in the blockchain in order to ensure the module’s traceability. Contributors potentially spend more time on maintenance and support than they should in the absence of immutability and traceability. Contributors save time dealing with trustful customers. PrestaTrust browses the blockchain to verify that the licence corresponding to this store has been rightfully purchased.
Only 0.8% extra commission for a peace of mind
PrestaTrust always allows the module installation, it simply warns the merchant, so that he is aware of the origin and authenticity of the module: it informs without monitoring. All contributors can choose PrestaTrust for 0.8% extra commission.
