Digital Certificate ArtID

Digital Certificate ArtID

The Digital Certificate(DC) of an artwork is a "zip" folder containing all the documentation related to it, such as high definition images, author authentication, documents relating to the possible archiving, evidence of the exhibitions in which the artwork was exhibited, indications of relevant publications, extracts of publications containing information on the artwork. The DC may contain information on the author, on historical periods, information on current and previous properties, the place where the artwork is physically kept, prices, deeds of sale, sales declarations and appraisals. The "zip" folder is signed on blockchain. The contents of the CD can not be modified neither in its contents nor for the information relative to the date of creation and updating.

The DC facilitates the necessary due diligence in the purchase phase of an artwork, the artworks equipped with it are easily inventoried and a collection of certified artworks is always updated. The DC represents the optimal tool where information needs to be given in import / export / customs clearance operations and in succession dues. It greatly enhances the artwork, facilitates the process of information exchange and gives access to great visibility thanks to the possibility of publishing it on the Marketplace and on other platforms.

The DC is the prerequisite for a new generation of artworks that will differ from the previous ones for the possibility of accessing all the documentation through an incorruptible, shared and public archive. Thus creating the conditions for a new and more open, transparent and liquid art market.
