  • What is blockchain? What is a distributed ledger?

    Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is a database which isn’t stored in one single location, hence the ‘distributed’ in the name. Whilst Blockchain Technology is a form of DLT, they are not necessarily identical, there are some differences in the way they record. Blockchain is a form of DLT which builds blocks of information in a timely manner, these blocks are held in a distributed fashion, located on a number of connected servers in different locations. Essentially this technology in its most basic form is a database system; it is a modern, secure, unalterable (immutable) virtually unhackable way to store data and record transactions hence the global interest in Blockchain.

    Blockchain began over 10 years ago with Bitcoin, it is now used by businesses in all kinds of industries and it is operating at speeds allowing encrypted transactions to take merely seconds.

    ArtChain Global is built on a custom blockchain system to record transactions, verify artwork authenticity, artwork ownership and provenance. Physical artwork is represented digitally by a token system, which records all the data about the artwork and is the ‘digital title’ for that physical piece. Owning the digital title is the equivalent to owning the title to your own home. Banks, insurance companies and potential buyers can check to ensure that you do indeed own this piece of artwork which is transferred to the next owner in the event of a sale on the ArtChain Global platform.

  • How can I ensure authenticity of an artwork?

    When an artwork’s image is uploaded to the platform as part of the registration process, ArtChain Global’s unique artificial intelligence software – which is built in partnership with Swinburne University - analyzes each artwork down to each individual pixel. What this means is that each brush stroke is identified in minute detail. When a painting is bought through the platform and delivered to you, you can simply take a photo of the painting and upload that photo to the platform. ArtChain Global’s platform will then analyze the photo of the artwork with the artificial intelligence software and match it to the original photo taken of the artwork. If they are the same, you can be assured that you’ve received the actual artwork. Should there be a difference between the two, the platform will flag this.

  • How do I estimate additional costs of the art I’m interested in, such as shipping and framing of artwork or painting?

    Check the shipping information on the artwork details page. It will give an indication of where the artwork is located/shipped from. Contact ArtChain Global if you need help with shipping.
