In an effort to help creators protect digital art and similar work, this German startup is helping people manage their creations. Ascribe enables users to register, archive, transfer and track their valued work using cryptographic certificates to prove authenticity. This is supposed to prevent duplication or other unauthorized use or people's artwork.

Ascribe helps protect digital art with secure attribution and easy transfers, so you can share content without having to worry. In the future, the company also hopes to offer analytics on where your work is being used, allowing you to more stategically monetize your creations.

Ascribe uses a blockchain-powered IP to do this. To use, simply upload a file and register yourself as an artist. Their unique timestamped certificates will follow it all over the Internet.
