Zilpa is a token based decentralized asset management database and registry on the blockchain. Built on Ethereum ERC20 protocol, Zilpa's platform (app) simplifies the process of creating a registry of collectibles as well as cataloguing, managing, and storing the assets in the app, which can then be available for listing, either for sale or for loan to the ecosystem partners. All this is possible by means of a smart contract via the blockchain technology; combining a much-needed asset cataloguing platform using blockchain technology. The demand for sharing assets anonymously has been sought after for quite some time within the industry, hence, Zilpa was born. Zilpa provides unique interactive opportunities for all participants of the ecosystem - Collectors, Galleries, Auction houses and their ecosystem partners.
Presently, collectors are not given an option of migrating their asset collection database to another platform, thus creating a major hurdle for collectors. When a database management company goes out of business, collectors have no other option but to start building their collection database from the beginning, leaving the collectors in a frustrated and lost state. Managing a private collection becomes very painful, time-consuming, and an expensive proposition.
Collectors have to go through a specific channel to sell their asset in auctions.. Auction houses have their own set of rules and preferences on which asset they want to include in the auction sales. It is very difficult for collectors to place their assets for sale in the auctions. Not every asset can be placed in the auctions and get sold. Only pieces that are chosen by the auction houses can be sold in auctions. So, collectors have no option but to sell their assets privately, or be able to place the asset in a gallery and hope that it will sell. With Zilpa and the ecosystem partners, this challenge can be resolved.
Collectors have minimal access to the museums in loaning their works. It is getting extremely difficult for collectors to loan their assets to the museums for their upcoming exhibitions. Concurrently, museums are having difficulty in gaining access to the available assets from collectors for their exhibitions; thus, creating a challenge between the collectors and the museums. With Zilpa, the collectors can post their assets for loan and museums can gain access to the available assets from the collectors, which are available in the listing for the loan section of the Zilpa platform (app).
Collectors have minimal solutions for data confidentiality and keeping collectors' identity anonymous. When collectors use other existing management platforms, their information is exposed to companies that are providing the database platform. Majority of the existing database companies have access to the confidential information of their users and are sharing this information with other companies for their marketing purposes. With Zilpa's decentralized blockchain protocol platform, the collectors' information is not revealed to anyone, thus maintaining anonymity. It stays on the users own cloud, own device, and own image library, without being exposed to anyone. Once the collector registers the asset to the blockchain, the data becomes public, however, the collector's identity stays anonymous.
Zilpa is introducing a disruptive business model in the collection database management world, by giving our users an opportunity to own and control their images and content. It replaces traditional models of cataloging by implementing a user-friendly, effective, alternative solution using decentralized blockchain technology. Our focus is in providing asset management platform (app) to service the ecosystem with privacy, trust, decentralization, and autonomy.
Currently, the collectibles industry has an expensive and proprietary approach to manage assets with limited visibility. The facilitators lack the visibility for restoration, shipping, and storage. With Zilpa's autonomous, trusted, global, and secure platform, the ecosystem partners have the visibility and associated benefits within the ecosystem.
Collectors have an option of storing their asset details onto their own cloud, on their own device, without sharing their private information. The confidentiality of the collector and their asset details remains safe and secure on their own device, which can be accessed from anywhere with the use of the Zilpa app. The data is only released when a collector decides to register it on the blockchain. However, the identity of the collector stays confidential.
Zilpa's platform (app) provides an economical solution for managing and listing the assets, for sale or for loan, having it available to other collectors, galleries, museums, and to the ecosystem partners.
All assets that are registered on the blockchain are permanently available for retrieval from either the Zilpa app or the web. The data is immutable, therefore, no one can access or change the data on the blockchain unless the collector shares the asset hash with the other party. The asset data is kept for a lifetime existence on the blockchain.
Collectors are the largest demographic on the Zilpa app platform. They use our app from all over the world to collect, manage, register, and catalog their assets. These users engage with the app’s core features, including the expo mode and the collection mode. They are also the users who most often push the information onto the blockchain, list their assets for sale or make them available for loan to museums.
Galleries are an important group of users for the ecosystem partners. They have access to the listings that are pushed to the blockchain. Each listing may have a gallery or auction house as its ecosystem partner, for its assets to be handled, authenticated, and ultimately sold by the paired partners. Galleries can digitize and blockchain enable their assets and have the hash available to display, along with the items exhibited, so the information is readily available for their buyers.
Auction houses are as vital as the galleries and form an important group in the ecosystem. They can access all assets that are publicly listed in a designated area. Assets can then be sold in the auction house when they are paired or partnered with the seller or collector. Auction houses can digitize and blockchain enable their assets and have the hash available to display, along with the items exhibited, so the information is readily available for their viewers.
Museums are also essential to the ecosystem because they have access to the listed database of assets available for loan. If museums are planning to exhibit certain items during a future exhibition, they will be able to acquire the specific asset available for loan. Similar to galleries, museums can digitize and blockchain enable their assets and have the hash available to display, along with the items exhibited, so the information is readily available for their viewers. Museums, as ecosystem partners, can also benefit from the asset for loan section of the platform and have access to the items that are available for loan by collectors. This can help museums pursue the pieces that are available for loan and make it available to the public through their upcoming exhibitions.
Galleries can publish their asset to the blockchain and receive a hash/Digital ID, which is unique to each asset, and can be displayed alongside their exhibited pieces of collectibles. With this hash, the viewer can gain access to the data directly through the Zilpa app or any Ether scanner on the web. Galleries can gain access and view the listings available for sale and become ecosystem partners for the collectors.
Auction houses can also publish their asset to the blockchain and receive a hash/Digital ID, which is unique to each asset, and can be displayed alongside their showcased pieces of collectibles. With this hash, the viewer can gain access to the data either through the Zilpa app or any Ether scanner on the web. Auction houses can gain access and view the listings available for sale and become ecosystem partners for the collectors.
Museums can also publish their asset to the blockchain and receive a hash/Digital ID, which is unique to each asset, and can be displayed alongside their exhibited pieces of collectibles. With this hash, the viewer can gain access to the data either through the Zilpa app or any Ether scanner on the web. Museums can gain access and view the listings available for loan and become ecosystem partners for the collectors.
Restorers can gain access to assets that are listed for sale or loan. They can connect with collectors, who may need restoration for their assets, in order to restore a piece for an upcoming exhibition or sale.
Shippers can gain access to assets that are listed for sale or loan. They can connect with collectors, who may require shipping, locally or internationally, of their assets for an upcoming exhibition or sale.
Storage companies are also part of the ecosystem. They can gain access to assets that are listed for sale or loan. They can connect with collectors, who may need a storage facility for their assets.
