The Protocol

In art & collectibles, an item’s identity is central to its value.
To buy or sell, get insurance, or take out a loan, previous owners, history and authenticity are constantly checked and verified.

Codex stores an item’s identity securely on the blockchain. We make it easier to buy, sell and manage assets of all kinds.
