The Blockchain!
A new registration option on Artcertificate

New technologies have had surprises in store for us every day for several years now, but I must admit that Blockchain is a big step forward, because it is a decentralized register of information completely secured by cryptography.

I imagine that I speak Chinese for the majority of you and that you do not see the point of using such a process at the level of the certificates of authenticity.

I will explain to you simply:

1) Artcertificate currently stores all its Certificates of Authenticity in a centralized database on a private server. We therefore act as a trusted third party to confirm to buyers that the certificates have been correctly registered in accordance with good certification practices.

At a more professional level, for works having a certain financial and patrimonial value, it is necessary to legally guarantee the timestamp and the veracity of the information. The trusted third party is no longer sufficient, while the Blockchain offers these guarantees and better sustainability.

2) Artcertificate now allows anyone with a certificate of authenticity on their server to be able to register it on the global Blockchain as well. A simple click is enough to add it to the inviolable chain of Blockchain transactions, a bit like a 'pearl' that is added to a 'necklace'.

Important particularity: This chain of transactions is no longer stored on a central server, but shared with the thousands of players who participate in the Blockchain.

The legal benefits are enormous and your certificate of authenticity is beyond dispute. I say no more, but do not hesitate to contact me to talk about it.

I wish you a lot of success.

Are you an art professional?
Are you a confirmed artist?

Artcertificate allows you today to register your certificates of authenticity on the Blockchain of the Ethereum network in order to guarantee you ENHANCED SECURITY and OPTIMUM TRACEABILITY.
Blockchain is a technology for storing and transmitting information, transparent, secure, and operating without a central control body (defined by Blockchain France). It is the technology at the heart of the Decentralized Web and its corollary, decentralized finance.

By extension, a blockchain is a database that contains the history of all the exchanges made between its users since its creation. This database is secure and distributed: it is shared by its various users, without an intermediary, which allows everyone to check the validity of the chain. There are public blockchains, open to everyone, and private blockchains, access and use of which are limited to a certain number of actors.

A public blockchain can therefore be likened to a public, anonymous and tamper-proof accounting ledger. As the mathematician Jean-Paul Delahaye writes, one has to imagine 'a very large notebook, which everyone can read freely and for free, on which everyone can write, but which is impossible to erase and indestructible. '

Locate the blockchain
The first blockchain appeared in 2008 with the digital currency bitcoin, developed by an unknown man using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. It is the underlying architecture.

While blockchain and bitcoin were built together, today many players (companies, governments, etc.) are considering the use of blockchain technology for other purposes than digital currency.

How it works ?
Any public blockchain necessarily works with a programmable currency or token. Bitcoin is an example of a programmable currency.

Transactions between network users are grouped together in blocks. Each block is validated by the nodes of the network called miners, according to techniques which depend on the type of blockchain. In the bitcoin blockchain this technique is called Proof-of-Work, proof of work, and consists of solving algorithmic problems.

Once the block is validated, it is time stamped and added to the blockchain. The transaction is then visible to the receiver as well as the entire network.

This process takes a certain time depending on the blockchain we are talking about (about ten minutes for bitcoin, 15 seconds for Ethereum).

The potential of blockchain
The decentralized nature of the blockchain, coupled with its security and transparency, promises much broader applications than the monetary domain.
