When we talk about blockchain, we think more about NFTs than antiques. However, it is a very smart bet by the Parisian antiques dealer Steinitz and the auction house Christie’s at an auction in London on September 21, about sixty items of decorative art from the 18thE and XIXE century registered in the blockchain. First in this specialty.

“This will provide the buyer with a secure and encrypted certification in the form of a permanent digital record, grouping important information about the work and irrevocably guaranteeing its authenticity, provenance and condition,” explains Benjamin Steinitz.
