Klip Drops features 28 distinguished Korean artists every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from September 22 to November 14. On Saturdays and Sundays, the works of the four most popular artists from Vol.1 will be presented in a ‘Highlight Session’ including Mr. Misang, Jeon Byeong-sam, Woo Kuk-won, and Bang & Lee.
Jason Han, CEO of GroundX, said, “For Vol.2, we have selected 28 innovative and digital-friendly artists,” and that “users will be able to build a rapport with these artists that are establishing themselves in a wide variety of genres which include fine art, sculpture and photography.” He added, “The new Highlight Session will be an opportunity for the artists to express their philosophy and for the users to grow their collection of digital art.”
SSG.COM announced its new luxury item authentication service “SSG Guarantee’’ starting September 26, which uses GroundX’s blockchain technology. The digital certificates serves as proof of authenticity for luxury products. It is a solution to prevent counterfeits of luxury products with enhanced security harnessing the technology of NFTs, which will be issued in smartphones. A unique serial number for each item will be included on the certificate, which cannot be copied or counterfeited. A digital certificate will contain product details, purchase history, warranty period, and security-related information.
These certificates by SSG.COM are issued by Klip Partners, the digital card-minting tool developed by GroundX. Unlike conventional paper or plastic types, the digital certificates are stored safely and conveniently in the virtual asset wallet Klip, which is conveniently integrated within KakaoTalk. SSG.COM aspires to create a trustworthy online luxury shopping atmosphere and to become a pioneer in employing digital certificates in the field.
