Why tokenize a Stradivarius?



& Seamless Value Transfer

The conversion of real world assets (RWAs) into digital tokens, can enhance liquidity significantly and provide a pathway for owners to utilize RWAs in the financial realm.



& Improved Record Keeping

High-value assets are often tied to a trustable ledger and provable record of ownership. Blockchain-technology can represent a reliable solution to the problem.


New Possibilities

For Collectibles On-Chain

Blockchain technology can merge the physical art world with the digital world, opening up new possibilities — from trading to lending, from asset management to fractional ownership of RWAs.

The Master

Antonio Stradivari

Antonio Stradivari is almost universally regarded as the greatest violin maker in history, and the value of his instruments reflects that exalted status.

He was born in circa 1644 and his 71 year career is a vivid account of early mastery, ingenious innovation, and indelible craftsmanship. The pinnacle of his career is known as the Golden Period and lasted roughly from 1700 to 1720.
