Authentication of an artwork using state-of-theart augmented authentication technology that scans, recognizes and validates a “fingerprint” and stores this in the image’s proof-of-life, its “biometric passport”. When a user (verified according to the KYC standards used by Swiss banks) scans an image, this powerful
software records its structural, material and textural features as well as color spectrum. Using “augmented authentication” technology and layer photography, image data is then converted into an artwork’s unique
fingerprint. This “fingerprint” is stored on the blockchain along with all other relevant information, providing
the artwork with a forgery-proof “biometric passport” that also lists its current condition /restoration
status.
