The process of using NFTs for artwork includes authenticating and scanning an item, creating an NFT, appraising its value, and establishing historical provenance.
Provenance refers to the history of ownership and custody of an artwork. It documents the movement of a piece from its creation to the present day, including the names of previous owners, auction records, exhibition histories, and any other relevant information. In the art trade, provenance is essential as it helps establish an artwork's authenticity and value.
The acquisition of a majority stake in Maharlika aligns with Metaverse, Inc.'s mission to promote the development and innovation of blockchain technology in various industries, including asset management.
