Artory is unique in many ways. A few specific ways we are different from other technology companies that use blockchain are:
- Unlike other blockchain companies, Artory never has to obtain the identity or email address of a collector. The Artory Registry was created for records, meaning that the collector of the artwork can remain completely unknown to us and to the public, ensuring the collector's privacy and security.
- The Artory Registry does not sell art. Artory believes in the importance of the transparency and accessibility of credible data to help grow the art market. We are about connecting collectors with trusted art experts. While other platforms serve as a marketplace for selling art through direct sales, we are partnering to provide a service to both collectors and our Partners.
- Though Artory uses some of the benefits of blockchain, including time-stamping data, making data immutable, and the distributed ledger technology, we never deal with cryptocurrencies. We are not trying to create a new currency backed by artworks; we are securing records to provide immutable proof of ownership.
