Startbahn Cert. has the following six main advantages.
- The blockchain certificate can supplement the existing paper certificates. By reading an IC tag attached to the work with a smartphone or other devices, the owner of the work can view a blockchain certificate of the work easily.
- The blockchain prevents tampering with the provenance and unauthorized duplication of certificates.
- We will be able to record the history of artworks, which has been difficult in the past. Artists can track the current status of their artworks. Furthermore, we can record information that may add value for their artworks in the future.
- The blockchain certificate can strengthen the authenticity of the artworks. By linking an artwork with an IC tag which has an unique ID, we can connect data on the blockchain with the real artwork.
- Artists themselves and businesses that manage artists can set the contract terms of the artwork on the blockchain certificate. Setting the contract terms can protect the artists’ rights and encourage support for artists through the setting of royalties from secondary sales.
- We ensure the protection of the users’ privacy by managing public information and private information such as the personal information of the work's owner separately.
