Documenting provenance using Codex Records

What is provenance?

  • Original receipts
  • Handwritten notes or inscriptions (plaques, sewn-in tags, notes on backs of paintings)
  • Photographs, often showing item with original owner or with a well-known person (politicians, musicians, artists, actors, etc.).
  • Gift documentation (especially a note from a famous person giving the gift)
  • Certificates of Authenticity
  • A complete list of owners
  • Auction records
  • Recorded in a home inventory: Mentioned in a will or a diary or a visitor’s written account; some kind a bill of sale or sales receipt
Images, emails and certificates of authenticity are all good ways to document an item in your collection.

How does provenance work with the blockchain

Images, historical information and blockchain-based provenance makes for a great Codex Record.
