“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
See extensive patents and publications.

“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.

I had a chance meeting with Stuart Haber and immediately realized blockchain is the technology that can save artists.”

—Loni Efron,

Archivist, founder Intaglio Blockchain

Trusted Blockchain 101 (In Summary)

BLOCKCHAIN Like accounting, it generates a ledger.
The ledger stores records.
The records are date and time stamped.
This history is public for all to see.
“What is written is written”: The information cannot be changed.

INTAGLIO BLOCKCHAIN
Our consensus mechanism is Proof of Authority where transactions are executed only by verified entities.
A verified entity has passed the required multi-factor authentication.
We issue real-time digital certificates, which can be revoked.
We are neither a coin nor a crypto-anything.


IDENTITY VALIDATION PROCESS

KYC & AML- Anti Money Laundering Validation
Intaglio Blockchain identity validation uses an industry standard service,
the same standard as banking.

Professional Credential Validation
Validate credentials from appropriate credential authorities.
(licenses, education, employment, awards, trust of peers, etc.)

A successfully completed identity validation process allows individuals to record information on the Intaglio Blockchain as defined by their approved role. You will receive a Certificate Signature. This can be revoked.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE INTAGLIO BLOCKCHAIN
Trust.
Verified information.
Public Access.
Standards.
Transparency of Transactions. Provenance.

Blockchain technology can do for digital assets and provenance what no other technology has been able to do.
We provide unchangeable, trustworthy provenance.

TESTIMONIALS

“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 at CDAS, expert in copyright, trademark and digital media law

MORE ABOUT INTAGLIO BLOCKCHAIN

The Intaglio Blockchain’s ledger enables trusted parties to permanently tag and record the accurate description and sources of data and objects. Clients tag their physical objects and receive a block to connect their object to the Intaglio Blockchain.

Large clients can license an Intaglio Blockchain node. This nodes connects to the Intaglio Blockchain Network. The node can hosted on the client’s local server or the cloud. Their private company ledger gives them more precise control of costs, while guaranteeing uptime, scalability for high throughput operations without external control of batch sizes, limits or other performance limitations.  The data from these private chains is then pushed and published on the Intaglio Immutable Blockchain Network.

WORKFLOW FLOWCHART

Below is a visual representation of the very simple process. No new platforms are introduced. One needs a computer with internet access to record information about an object.

THE BIRTH OF INTAGLIO BLOCKCHAIN

“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.

I had a chance meeting with Stuart Haber, a cryptographer and co-inventor of blockchain technology (13 years before Bitcoin). It was like a lightbulb, and I realized blockchain is the technology that can save artists.” —Loni Efron, co-founder Intaglio Blockchain
