Operem is building the world's first blockchain-based Intellectual Property (IP) Licensing platform. Operem will allow patents and other IP to be licensed, traded, and shared, unlocking the US$180 billion annual worldwide patent market currently shackled by complex litigation, closed-door negotiation practices and inconsistent pricing. Operem’s blockchain infrastructure enables a transparent and liquid IP market by providing price discovery, visibility of ownership, and an immutable history of transactions.
We believe it's time to open up one of the last massively closed asset classes to everyone: intellectual property (IP). The Operem Exchange™ will do just that. We are building the world’s first blockchain-based trading exchange for patents, trademarks, and other IP.
