The Artcertificate Blockchain
Artcertificate offers artists and professionals to create and register certificates of authenticity which will then be integrated into the Blockchain on the Ethereum network. A specific option allows you to transfer any certificate on the Blockchain with a simple 'click'.
What is: Artcertificate Blockchain?
It is a fully managed blockchain registration service that facilitates the creation and management of a scalable blockchain network and distributed ledger technologies applied to COA Certificates of Authenticity. All COAs can be registered on the blockchain with a single click and obtain a certificate of authenticity on the Artcertificate Blockchain (COABC).
A blockchain allows Artcertificate to perform COA Certificate of Authenticity registrations where different members of the network can perform register authenticity checks without having to resort to a reliable central authority (Control outside Artcertificate). Each party, known as a member, has a peer node in the network.
Artcertificate Blockchain supports a reputable blockchain framework.
Ethereum is ideally suited for highly distributed blockchain networks, where data transparency of all members is an important factor and allows all network participants to independently verify a user's activity among all members. Ethereum also makes it possible to join a public Ethereum blockchain network.
The ledger is decentralized and is managed by an Ethereum blockchain distributed among members. The control of registrations is independent of Artcertificate. The registration of COAs is carried out at the specific request of the applicant.
