HOW IT WORKS

metadata-stagesv2.png

NEW ART

  1. A tamper-proof unique identifier is attached to the piece and scanned at an Art Lock kiosk located at a studio or art gallery 

  2. Biometrics of the artist, the location of the kiosk, and the time are all recorded on the immutable ledger, along with any other pertinent information  

  3. The resulting digital token is immutably stored in the buyer’s digital wallet 

  4. If the buyer decides to sell, a portion of the profits go to the artist and art gallery

EXISTING ART

  1. The piece and its provenance are assessed by an authenticator 

  2. If it is found to be genuine, a tamper-proof unique identifier is attached to the piece and scanned at an Art Lock floating or stationary kiosks located at a gallery or auction house

  3. Biometrics of the authenticator, the location of the kiosk, and the time are all recorded on the immutable ledger, along with the provenance and any other pertinent information

  4. The resulting digital token is immutably stored in the buyer’s digital wallet

  5. If the buyer decides to sell, a portion of the profits go to the authenticator, auction house, and any other appropriate parties

Adopting this process in the art world has the potential to completely wipe out counterfeit art since it is impossible to replicate the digital token permanently Connected or chained using patented Art Lock technology. 

 

Apart from stopping bad actors from stealing the work of artists, our system also creates an additional revenue stream for artists, art galleries, and auction houses now that they receive a cut of the profits every time the art changes hands. This will help support artists just starting out to ensure they receive a living wage. Art Lock is dedicated to making the art world a better place where artists are compensated appropriately for their work allowing them to grow. 

 

Where art enthusiasts can feel confident that any new piece they add to their collection is truly authentic.
