Artory is proud to partner with The Crypto and Digital Art Fair (CADAF) for the third year in a row to register and secure the artworks shown at the fair. The first ever digital art fair, CADAF has been focused on supporting digital initiatives in the art market since 2018. Through this partnership, Artory was the first platform to register crypto and digital artworks and secure the artwork information on blockchain at CADAF’s 2019 fairs in Miami and New York.

Artory is a unique solution for both artists and collectors in the crypto and digital art space. Artory offers security of investment and pride of ownership in the digital art space. Proof of scarcity protects the investment, while also allowing artists to prove their digital artworks are limited editions and increase sale potential.

With Artory’s Registration and digital Certificates all of the information from digital artworks and NFTs sold at CADAF Online 2021 are stored immutably with a signature from the fair.

“CADAF is excited to partner with Artory once again,” says Elena Zavelev, Founder of CADAF, “The Artory Registry benefits collectors, artists, and sellers of digital art. By immutably recording an artwork’s code, ownership history, provenance, and more, Artory is an essential tool for protecting digital art and increasing confidence in the digital art space.”

Through RegistrationArtory memorializes a digital artwork’s unique code onto the blockchain: giving owners confidence in the authenticity and individuality of their piece. Artory’s digital Certificates allow collectors to be confident that their information is stored and protected: securely accessible only to them.

“The digital art space is growing every day, but many collectors are still hesitant to enter the space. The Artory Registry gives collectors confidence that their digital art is securely stored, unique, and authentic,” says Artory Founder & CEO, Nanne Dekking.

Within the digital art space, Artory is an essential tool for NFTs. While an NFT captures ownership and transaction history, Artory enables NFT collectors to secure the most valuable information about their artwork: provenance, exhibition history, artist statements, and more.

Moreover, cryptographic signing for artists on Artory allows artists to verify the information about their artworks in a space that cannot be manipulated or changed by outside parties.

Registered artworks shown at CADAF will be added to the public Registry as endorsed by the fair, making these records stand out among millions of unverified artworks in the Artory Registry.

Artory will also have a booth at the art fair to show a selection of digital artworks, including NFTs, registered through the Artory Registry. The online art fair will take place from June 17th to June 23rd. The fair will feature artworks by popular artists such as Andy Picci, Ines Alpha, Filippo Soccini, Nina Kuo, Lorin Roser, Kevin Abosch, Cryptopunks, and many more.
