Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is Monegraph?
Monegraph is a way to verify that certain digital images are unique, and that they are owned by the person who says they own them. Monegraph allows artists and collectors of digital art to create and share valuable work without worrying about it being devalued when the image is copied.
How does it work?
Monegraph is built around blockchains, the same technology that enables a reliable public ledger for transactions in Bitcoin. Instead of being used to verify a currency, Monegraph is designed to help people verify that a digital image is subject to a claim of ownership. Since this claim is stored on the Bitcoin blockchain, it can’t be forged or hacked. And like a Bitcoin, digital artworks registered through Monegraph are uniquely owned and tradable.
What happens if someone copies an image?
Only one copy of a digital image can ever have a valid Monegraph signature. Monegraph images are just ordinary image files, so they can be duplicated, distributed and shared like any other images, but only the original file will pass validation against the Monegraph system.
How do I monegraph a digital artwork?
Monegraph.com will soon re-launch as a platform for registering, verifying, distributing and exchanging digital art. To use the pre-alpha version of Monegraph seen at Seven-on-Seven and TechCrunch Disrupt NYC to register your work in the meantime, go to classic.monegraph.com.
