Certificates of Authenticity
Iterati's Certificates of Authenticity are digital descriptors which accompany every physical label and contain metadata about the label and the underlying physical artwork it is attached to.
The following fields are a subset of the data stored by each Iterati Certificate of Authenticity
- Label ID - An 8 digit integer value unique to each Iterati label
- Label Image - Hex-encoded binary field which stores the optical fingerprint configuration for this label (unique colors and positions of the microbeads)
- Token ID - Token ID of the NFT corresponding to the physical artwork being scanned
- Contract Address - Blockchain address of the NFT collection containing this Token ID
- Artist Address - Address of the artist or collection owner
- Signature - A cryptographically signed attestation from the artist which verifies that this certificate of authenticity was enrolled by the original NFT artist and not anyone else
Iterati's modular authenticity stack aims to eliminate single points of failure and ensure that the artworks enrolled though the platform survive and can be verified long into the future.
The Ceramic Network is a composable Web3 data network that encourages reusable data models and enables anyone to upload, manage and consume structured data from IPFS.
At the moment, Iterati is handling the overhead of pinning and indexing each COA file, however we hope that developer groups will take on the task of pinning the files which are relevant to them in the future, as an additional layer of redundancy and decentralization.
