The Artory Registry is live!
Artory’s blockchain-based Registry tracks provenance for art and collectibles, leveraging the industry’s first object-oriented database.
The Artory Registry brings a new level of confidence to the market
Today’s collectors are more skeptical and risk averse than in the past. With over 60% afraid of buying fakes, and over half wanting better provenance information to support a purchase, collectors want to buy with absolute confidence.
From these insights, the Artory Registry was created to digitally memorialize the stories, histories, provenance, sales, and archival materials of artworks and collectibles, bringing greater confidence to those who buy and sell art.
The Artory Registry is also a platform for dealers and auction houses to work with collectors in a secure, anonymous environment. Working with industry partners, the Registry will establish standardization of record and proof of ownership for the industry.
