Whitepaper

An unprecedented standard of transparency, authenticity, and security for the art world.

Hundreds of million dollars are lost to art fraud each year. With our powerful image-capturing software, we render artworks forgery-proof. This new authentication standard logs an artwork’s unique fingerprint, its history and provenance on the blockchain – balancing the industry’s need for greater transparency with state-of-the-art security.

UNPRECEDENTED AUTHENTICITY

Powerful image-authentication software

Our (existing!) software is able to scan and match an artwork’s unique digital fingerprint by capturing its finest textural details. Once this fingerprint is stored on the blockchain, the artwork is essentially unforgeable: this powerful software detects even the most sophisticated fake.

UNPRECEDENTED TRANSPARENCY

A blockchain-powered cataloguing and transaction platform

At the heart of our blockchain-based platform are the artworks’ forgery-proof profiles including their digital fingerprints, history, and provenance. For any transaction, smart contracts and the decentralized nature of the blockchain guarantee the highest security standards. This finally offers the unprecedented transparency the art world has lacked.

UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL

Value for the entire arts ecosystem

The best solutions are those that benefit all. Our authentication protocol works for art portfolios large or small, for individual owners or big institutions. For insurers and logistic firms, it makes instant condition reports quick and easy and offers novel track & trace functionality. And not least, it opens the way for artists to earn from resales of their works.
