Amit Jesani Launches New Project, Zapit 

Amit Jesani and his team recently announced the launch of Zapit, a product review authenticator powered by Blockchain technology. Jesani is the president of skincare product company Tend Skin Store.

Everyone wants legitimate product reviews to help them make the most informed purchases, but Amazon’s fake review problem is only getting worse. Zapit analyzes product reviews and confirms their legitimacy, providing a new level of confidence in the shopping platform for both buyers and sellers.

The Zapit token sale will go live on January 30. Built with blockchain technology, Zapit makes us rethink the way reviews process should be organized. The idea of Zapit started in Q3 2017, and the beta version of the platform will be ready for launch in Q2 of 2018.
