Blockchain Art Certificate of Authenticity

Designed with precious artworks in mind, the patented Blockchain Art Certificate of Authenticity is a subtle, yet tamper-evident, adhesive seal, which, once affixed to an artwork, maintains its identity and stays with a work for life. It allows you to easily keep track of your art pieces

Blockchain Art Identity Diagram

A Holistic Identity for a Work of Art

An authenticated object of any kind, including unique artworks and artifacts, has multiple components that are required to validate the claims to an identity. We connect these three components, namely: 1) an object , 2) a secure physical identity, and 3) a secure digital identity.

In the past, all of these components were isolated, creating holes or weaknesses in the ability to prove or rely on provenance claims or authentication documentation. Now, we have united these components so they stay together over the course of an object’s life, which allows for long-term oversight into the life of an individual artwork.


A Single Living Source of Provenance

Securely add, access or amend protected artwork data with the Blockchain Art Application on a mobile phone (or other NFC-enabled device).

Register, verify, and transfer the title of a work using the Application, and synchronistically write these events to a Blockchain. 


Leveraging New Technology

Today, technology touches just about everything in our lives, and the Blockchain Art Certificate of Authenticity has leveraged its benefits to create an unprecedented and unparalleled form of artwork authentication.

The core of our platform embraces the inevitability of technology by utilizing Blockchain and Internet of Things (IoT) to innovate and improve upon outdated systems, while seamlessly plugging into existing authentication practices.


Know Your Object (KYO)

A blockchain-based ledger system enables the creation of an unalterable, aggregated, digital record of provenance-related events about a single artwork over time. Once modifiable, siloed, and manual record keeping is now secured, integrated, accessible, and digitized.

This, coupled with the tamper-evident physical link--the Blockchain Certificate of Authenticity--truly means unprecedented provenance capabilities. 


Augmenting and Improving Existing Authentication Practices

Working artists, official artist representatives, and artist estates work with us to improve how they authenticate their artworks today. Our expertise lies in uniting the multiple facets of authentication processes and records. We help existing authentication practices grow stronger and more effective.

Our platform aids people in preventing future holes in provenance records, validating authenticity claims more efficiently over time, and returning more value to the rightful authors and representatives.
