Everything you need to know about pARTicipart

1AI

All our art is secured by both human experts and artificial intelligence (AI). In this process, an ultra high-resolution photo of a small part of a single brushstroke or another ultra small detail of the entire picture is taken and unalterably stored on the blockchain. In any following transaction, artificial intelligence compares this stored high-resolution detail to a second picture taken on site. Only if all details are the same, does the A.I. approves the transaction. This way, the identity and originality of all our masterpieces are not only checked by the usual human expertise and documentation, but are also authenticated by AI .

2AR

From the moment you secure your pARTicle reservation, you will get access to a digital augmented reality (AR) “print” of your masterpiece. This allows you to place a high-quality digital picture of the masterpiece onto any photo on your mobile phone.  So, you can sit in your room/car/office/plane and put your Picasso on the wall. Look and enjoy, or share it with friends.

4Blockchain

The blockchain is a decentralized data storage system, that is extremely secure and very easy to operate. Your own art ownership will be stored on millions of computers, all over the world. The access to this data is secured by a private “key”, that only you will have. This key will be given to you immediately after your pARTicle reservation.

5NFC Chip

All our masterpieces are secured with a high tech NCF chip that directly links the art to the blockchain. The museum secures the art in the real world, pARTicipart in addition, creates a digital twin, that is also secured on the blockchain. Starting with the smART investor level and up, this double security is topped by a third chip. Double secured, triple chipped, and super easy to use: all you need is our smART phone app.

6Expert Certificate

All our masterpieces come with full documentation and certification. In addition, we have our own experts verify the authenticity of each masterpiece. Finally, all human expertise is double secured with a sophisticated artificial intelligence program. Instead of an authentication process by human or machine, pARTicipart secures all art by human PLUS machine.

7Masterpiece

All our masterpieces are ultra-high level works of art crafted by high value masters or art only. Those so-called blue-chip pieces traditionally are a very secure investment, often outperforming stock markets and other forms of investments. Top level art more or less never loses value – and only keeps gaining.

8Sister Print

An investment at the “valued pARTner” level and up secures you a limited-edition sister print of your masterpiece.  Like the original in the museum, this sister print is secured with a unique NFC chip and a digital twin on the blockchain. The print is authenticated by TRUST YOUR GOODS a high level Austrian blockchain and authentication specialist.

9TrUST YOUR GOODS

10Trusted payment

All higher payments are secured with a short authentication process requiring a brief and easy video call and a picture ID. This guarantees speed, safety and legality of all transactions. All you need is a computer with camera, yourself and a valid picture ID.

11Secured Ownership

Your pARTicile ownership is secured in 3 unique ways, that create both a physical and digital safety bubble around your investment. All original masterpieces are securely stored in special art safe environment not only for storage but also during shipping. Most art is ultimately on display in a top museum in Liechtenstein and can be visited for free by particle owners. In addition to this, all masterpieces are additionally secured with a high-tech NFC chip that links the real masterpiece to its digital twin on the blockchain. This means each masterpiece is secured twice: once in the real world and once digitally.

The third key defines our TRIPLE SAFTEY concept:  each pARTicle gets a unique token on the blockchain, that can easily be accessed via NFC chip for smART investors level and up. Easy staRTers can access the blockchain without NFC. ONLY IF ALL THREE KEYS FIT the masterpiece can change ownership.

12Security

After purchase all physical art is professionally stored, secured and often on display in a museum in Liechtenstein. The digital twin is secured on the blockchain. The link between physical and digital identity cannot be broken and ensures the highest level of security available on eARTh  today.
