Artworks registered by Collectioneurs.nl are documented immutably using blockchain on Artory.
AMSTERDAM / NEW YORK – Collectioneurs.nl and Artory have announced their collaboration to register artworks using Artory’s innovative blockchain platform. By using Artory’s blockchain technology, Collectioneurs.nl guarantees a reliable chain of custody that anchors the value of the artwork. The Artory Registry immutably records information, such as date of purchase, previous owners, exhibitions, provenance, condition reports, valuations, and more. The information about the artworks is public in the Registry, while the identity of the owner remains private. Only Collectioneurs.nl, who will work with their collectors to register their artwork and secure their artwork information, will know their client’s identity.
Artory’s price database contains millions of historical transaction records from auction houses around the world, including Sotheby’s, Christie’s, and Phillips, going back to 1985. Artworks purchased by Collectioneurs.nl clients will have their artwork information signed and validated by Collectioneurs.nl experts, allowing these vetted artworks to stand out in Artory’s database as containing trusted information. Collectioneurs.nl customers will have free and complete access to the records of their artworks and Certificates of Registration. Through this collaboration, customers will also have access to Artory’s partner, Winston Art Group. Winston Art Group is the largest art appraisal firm in the world and specializes in advice and management of collections.
With this collaboration, Collectioneurs.nl offers added services to its customers. Every customer receives a virtual, end-to-end encrypted digital Vault on Artory to store and organize all of their valuable artwork information and documents, as well and their digital Certificate connecting their ownership to the artwork via blockchain. If Collectioneurs.nl customers want to add multiple objects to that safe, this is also possible for a reasonable fee.
