Certificate of Authenticity

Certificates of Authenticity must have:

  • A verified issuer

  • An identified creator who has authorized the issuer

In situations where the artist is certifying their own work, the issuer and creator are the same.

Who is it for?

  • Creators certifying their own works

  • Galleries and organizations certifying on behalf of creators with their authorization

Registered record +

A Registered Record + must have:

  • A verified issuer

Who is it for?

This describes situations where a business is issuing certificates under a business name or where the artist or creator is deceased and cannot authorize the issuer.

Registered Record

  • A record created by an unverified issuer

  • Not endorsed by the creator

Who is it for?

  • A collector creating a record of a work they own

Registered Records do not confer any authenticity or ownership, they act as a starting point for collecting data on the blockchain.
