Brooklyn, 21st August 2023 – Authentify Art, a cutting-edge technology company dedicated to transforming the art market with verified data, and Blockapps, a leading blockchain company dedicated to tokenizing real-world assets, are delighted to announce their strategic partnership aimed at bringing unprecedented levels of transparency and visibility to the art industry.
Together, BlockApps and Authentify are building toward a bridge to create a more liquid art market for collectors using art as collateral for loans and a private marketplace of trusted entities to sell their art. The near-term goal of the partnership is to create 100,000+ tokenized collections of art leveraging Authentifies suite of applications and the Mercata marketplace platform for managing art transactions.
In a time where the art world is constantly evolving, this collaboration seeks to address the challenges faced by collectors, galleries, art logistics companies, and enthusiasts alike. One of the critical focuses of this partnership is establishing a comprehensive platform that provides collectors with a secure and transparent environment to showcase their collections. This will empower collectors to connect with a broader audience, including insurers, admirers & potential buyers from around the globe. By leveraging the blockchain capabilities of Blockapps & platform built by Authentify Art, collectors will have a digital dossier of their collections that can be used to access derivative financial products offered by value-added service providers.
Both organizations are committed to fostering a community within the art world. Through educational programs, workshops, and networking events, artists, collectors, and industry professionals will have the opportunity to connect, share knowledge, and collaborate, ultimately driving growth and innovation in the art industry. “We are thrilled to embark on this partnership with Authentify,” said Victor Wong, Founder and Chief Product Officer at BlockApps. “By combining our strengths, we believe we can significantly impact the art world, creating a more transparent and accessible environment for everyone involved.”
Curtis McConnell, CEO of Authentify Art, also expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating, “This partnership aligns perfectly with our mission to bring trust and transparency to the art market. Developing solutions with BlockApps will revolutionize the way art is discovered and experienced. Together, we can drive the positive change that the art community has been asking for over the past several decades. From artists to dealers, auction houses to museums.”
The partnership between Blockapps and Authentify Art promises to be a game-changer in the art world, paving the way for transparency, visibility, and collaboration. The vision is to build a shared economy, indexing the art world as Google indexed the internet: a frictionless environment at the intersection of physical and digital spaces where artwork-related data can be smoothly found, traced, exchanged, analyzed, enriched, and validated/verified.
Stay tuned for further updates on the exciting initiatives that will be launched due to this partnership.
