AntiqMall’s ultimate goal is to decentralize the antiques market by establishing the world’s first marketplace for antiquating, which revolutionizes how antiques and luxury goods are bought and sold, and by putting control back into the hands of antique dealers, gallery owners, private collectors, interior designers and connoisseurs of fine art. AntiqMall aggregates fine art, furniture, porcelain, sculptures and other treasures from the most respected and trusted dealers in the business. We are exceptionally proud and happy to announce that to reach our goal faster, AntiqMall will be integrating with the Origin Protocol to further our mission of a fair and efficient blockchain-powered antiques marketplace.

Origin Protocol enables both traditional marketplaces and fractional-use or sharing economy marketplaces (like short-term rentals or ride sharing) to function in a completely distributed way using Ethereum and IPFS. We are excited to be building on the Origin platform and collaborating with the talented Origin development team, which is based in San Francisco. Origin is a highly pedigreed company — they are backed by the leading blockchain investment firm Pantera Capital, working with ConsenSys, and the founders have a long track record of success.

Thanks to the partnership with Origin and their highly qualified development team and sharing network effects, AntiqMall will enter the market much faster and make user acquisition and adoption considerably easier.

We are unable to wait for getting to grips with the technological and product challenges in achieving our vision. Our cooperation will allow us to overcome antiques market problems and making it safe, transparent, accessible, and up-to-date. Being a unique decentralized antiques marketplace, AntiqMall claims to be the new age of antiquating. Using blockchain-based technology, the platform makes it possible to conclude deals quickly, simply, cheaply, without intermediaries and absolutely safe, even if the users are oceans apart!

“AntiqMall is a great example of a project that is trying to create a more fair and open marketplace for antiques market. We are very excited that AntiqMall has decided to build on the Origin Platform and we look forward to collaborating with AntiqMall and their team.”

— Josh Fraser, Cofounder, Origin Protocol.

“We strongly believe that every single industry will be completely redefined by blockchain technologies. The world of antiques and fine art has yet to go through that inevitable transformation. Collaboration with Origin protocol is an inspiring opportunity to make far-reaching changes in this sphere”.

— Dmitriy Kuznetsov, Founder, AntiqMall

Big things are coming and we will keep you updated about our collaboration with Origin in the coming months!

Life is short, blockchain and art are eternal
