Question on NFTs for physical goods provenance

I keep reading that NFTs are a great way to prevent forgeries for physical goods. One example I’ve seen is a physical item such as luxury watches can come with a QR code, and a purchaser can scan the QR code to see if what they bought online is the genuine article.

My thoughts on this are – if someone is able to re-create something as complex and expensive as a luxury watch, even so making them physically identical to the real deal, wouldn’t they also have the skills to recreate a simple sticker of the original QR code?

***Interesting***… as I type this, I guess I answered my own question. The purchaser scans the QR code and sees that either they, or somebody else, is the NFT owner. And if they are looking at the well-known NFT smart contract, it’s obvious to follow provenance.

Ok, got it now đŸ™‚

… but rather than delete my already-self-answered question, I’m going to leave this here to see other people’s take on this, and maybe educate others who have the same kind of question.

  1. you need to choose NFTs that can somehow be used

    BLVCK give discounts on their merchandise, AngelBlock NFT owners will get drop merchandise as well as drop coins and so on
