Codex announces Simple Login feature — no blockchain wallet needed
Technology works best when it is accessible to all. That’s why we are excite
d to announce a new feature for the Codex Viewer to make it easy for anyone to manage provenance on Codex, even if you know nothing about blockchain.
What is Simple Login?
Our new Simple Login feature means that you can sign up easily with your Facebook, Google or Microsoft account. When you create an account via simple login, you will be given a small grant of CODX tokens to create your first records for free. Accessing blockchain products can be difficult or users when trying to navigate clunky, blockchain wallets — that’s why we’ve created a way to engage with Codex that is as simple as logging in to any traditional website.
If you are already using Codex Viewer with your MetaMask account today, things won’t change for you — you’ll still be able to continue to manage your collection using MetaMask and pay for transactions using ETH.
Send Records with Email
Additionally, you no longer need a blockchain wallet address to transfer or receive records. Now you can simply enter an email address. You can send your Record to a buyer via email, so you no longer have to worry about whether the recipient has the ability to access a blockchain platform. If they know how to open their email, they will know how to receive and claim a Codex Record.
So if you have been following the project but haven’t created any records yet, now is the time. To create a Record now, check out the Codex Viewer here https://codex-viewer.com/#/
Codex is the leading decentralized asset registry for the $2 trillion arts & collectibles (“A&C”) ecosystem, which includes art, fine wine, collectible cars, antiques, decorative arts, coins, watches, jewelry, and more. Powered by the CodexCoin native token, the Codex Protocol is open source, allowing third-party players in the A&C ecosystem to build applications and utilize the title system. Codex’s landmark application, Biddable, is a title-escrow system built on the Codex Protocol, which solves long-standing challenges in auctions: non-performing bidders, lack of privacy, and bidder access. The Codex Protocol and CodexCoin will be adopted as the only cryptocurrency by The Codex Consortium, a group of major stakeholders in the A&C space who facilitate over $6 Billion in sales to millions of bidders across tens of thousands of auctions from 5,000 auction houses in over 50 countries.
