Intaglio Blockchain’s first blockchain offering: Blockchain as service for verified artists, dealers, collectors, museums, institutions and auction houses.
Customers can record authenticated art with its provenance on the Intaglio Blockchain Art network.
BIRTH OF INTAGLIO
“The essential problem of how to establish the provenance of digital objects was the original motivation for me and my partner, Scott Stornetta, when we invented and then deployed the world's first blockchain in the early 90’s. I'm pleased to join the Intaglio team in building a robust platform for unforgeable provenance now.” — Stuart Haber, cryptographer, Intaglio Blockchain Chief Scientist, co-inventor of what's now known as the "blockchain" technique for ensuring the integrity of digital data, which he and his team first commercially deployed more than 13 years before Bitcoin.
“I saw the problems with authenticity, trust and trusted provenance. How are my artists being protected against fakes and forgeries? The artworks I am speaking of can reach sale prices of six digits. I have been grappling with these issues since digital became accessible. The artists are putting their best work out there, which unfortunately makes duplicating easier. —Loni Efron, archivist, editor, software designer, co-founder Intaglio Blockchain
IDENTITY VALIDATION PROCESS AT INTAGLIO BLOCKCHAIN
Only validated entities can put transactions on our blockchain network. We perform KYC (Know Your Customer) & AML (Anti Money Laundering) validations for all potential parties submitting transactions, the same standards as banking. Additionally, customers have professional credential validations such as licenses, education, employment, awards and trust of peers.
A successfully completed identity validation allows individuals to record information as defined by their approved role. Users receive an individual certificate, unique to Intaglio. This certificate can be revoke immediately preventing writing additional records.
No identity validation process is required to view the public network of Intaglio Blockchains.
Intaglio is collaborating with the Getty Research Institute to enrich transactions with links to historic, cultural, artistic and academic information. We have programmed our platform to comply with major vocabularies including AAT and ULAN.

Stuart Haber, one of the co-inventors of blockchain, tells the story of the technology, how it works and applications for decentralizing the integrity of digital record
“Intaglio has boldly put itself on the front line as blockchain surges into the art world. It does not just apply modern technology to age old problems, it invents new technology to solve them with trust and sustainability.” — Nicholas Dawes, VP Special Collections, Heritage Auctions
"Anything that increases collector confidence in this medium as Intaglio Blockchain obviously does can only be a good move." — Peter Fetterman, Director, Peter Fetterman Gallery
“Intaglio presents one of the best uses of block-chain that I have come across. Creating a tool for the art market to increase trust between collectors, artists and art sellers, is a perfect example of technology working for an industry and solving a real authentication issue.” —Nancy Wolff, Partner, CDAS, an expert in copyright, trademark & digital media law
