Artworks are protected using Tagsmart Certify - DNA tagging technology. Artists are then able to submit protected art, directly to online retailers. Retailers are able to select trusted inventory and offer it to their collectors. Collectors purchase works with confidence.
“I see a great value in the partnership with Tagsmart, we want to sell trusted art online via our marketplace. It is important for us to have complete and accurate records relating to the works whilst being able to reduce administrative effort. Tagsmart allows us to do so in a very efficient and secure way.”
Tagsmart is delighted to announce the development of the world’s first platform to trade trusted art online provisionally entitled: the ‘Hub’.
The Hub will be the first platform to enable the trade of trusted art online through the UK’s first B2B artwork aggregation service. Artists will be able to submit trusted art, pre-tagged and with a Certificate of Authenticity, directly to online retailers.
The Hub will launch in September 2018 with the support of leading and emerging artists registered on the Tagsmart platform who will offer their works for sale. Further announcement of retailer partners will be made in the coming weeks.
