Incorruptible Chain of Transaction

Sweepstake Case Study

HeraSoft’s Approach »

The security and verifiability of any sweepstakes game are paramount to its success.

Some of HeraSoft’s capabilities in gamification are demonstrated by our work with VIAFONE TECHNOLOGIES, which uses artificial intelligence and a machine-learning chatbot platform to elevate customer engagement. HeraSoft and VIAFONE partnered to launch the world’s first provably incorruptible mall sweepstakes chat application, sponsored by the State of Qatar.

The application allows users to securely connect and chat with other mall shoppers while participating in fun sweepstakes.

Using HeraSoft’s secure data storage and timestamp products, VIAFONE is able to drive shopper engagement while ensuring a trustworthy and transparent sweepstake. For every receipt entered to create a lottery ticket, and for every winner drawn, a timestamp is created in blockchain. This process creates an immutable audit trail and ensures a fraud-free drawing — guaranteed.


Securely identify, record, store and access data, and authenticate the chain of transactions.
