Solving the MultiBillion Dollar Provenance Problem

The biggest driver of an item’s monetary value are its identity and chain of ownership. Whether you’re talking about collectibles, artwork, or even classic cars, this is known as provenance.

Most provenance information still lies in paper documents that:

  • Are hard to share
  • Can be easily faked
  • Require constant re-verification

This creates constant, costly, friction for the entire collectibles ecosystem. Codex Protocol is an immutable blockchain platform that creators, auction houses and collectors are using to solve this problem worldwide.

Fears of forgeries are constant, and it’s hard to verify information about the items we buy and sell. This creates totally avoidable expense and friction.

Codex’s best-in-class technology provides a valuable solution to these problems. The Codex approach serves the entire market, owners, creators and institutions, making them an obvious choice for anyone who cares about protecting the integrity and value of their collection.

Codex Creates Identities for Any Asset, Secured by the Blockchain

Codex stores information about an item’s identity and ownership history in a secure digital token called a Codex Record. Codex Records can store any kind of information about an item, and record changes in ownership as the token is transferred from owner to owner.
