The art and collectibles market is filled with faked, flawed, or forged pieces that rely on an antiquated provenance system. We knew there could be only one solution—a new provenance structure that’s simple, secure, and immutable. One that protects the collectors as much as the creators, and is backed by the heart of the professional collectibles community.

We call it the Codex Protocol

Codex’s best-in-class technology provides a valuable solution.
Their 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.
