The Protocol

In art & collectibles, an item’s identity is central to its value.
To buy or sell, get insurance, or take out a loan, previous owners, history and authenticity are constantly checked and verified.

Codex stores an item’s identity securely on the blockchain as a Codex Record. We make it easier to buy, sell and manage assets of all kinds.

CodexCoin (CODX) is used to modify and verify the data stored on Codex Records, among other uses. There are already auction houses, lenders, appraisers, and fractional ownership companies who have announced plans to use CodexCoin.
