The price is set based on the rarity of the piece and the fact that it is a one-of-a-kind piece. For this reason, in the event that the seller’s liability is claimed by you after delivery of the artwork, the legal evaluation of the conformity of the “kind and quality” to the contract shall be made in accordance with these values.

Due to the presence of SRR certification on the artwork, in the event that various disputes arise as a result of the client’s inability to properly handle the SRR, it may affect our company’s business credibility, as well as the artist’s reputation and artistic credibility.

All artworks purchased on this website come with an IC-tagged NFT blockchain certificate called a Startrail Registry Record (SRR). The SRR uses the Startrail blockchain infrastructure that guarantees the reliability and authenticity of a work of art and helps maintain its value. Startrail is managed principally by Startbahn, Inc.

The certificate contains information on the work of art, including its size, digital image, year of production and other information, and is registered in Startrail. It is also managed and administered by the Startrail PORT NFT management service provided by Startbahn.

A card or seal IC tag is attached to each artwork.

You must consent to the issuance of the above-mentioned SRR with each work of art and that after KARAFUNEYA, who administers Kogei Art KYOTO, has registered the customer’s email address in Startrail PORT, an email message will be sent to the customer’s email address from Startrail PORT informing the customer of the transfer of the NFT and asking the customer to accept transfer. You must use the registered email address and create an account with Startrail PORT.

If you do not create an account, transfer of the NFT will not be completed.

Please be aware that you must provide your email address to Startbahn.

Also be aware that the SRR may contain contract terms on the work of art related to royalties to be paid for secondary sales of the work of art. You must consent to the contract terms related to transfer of ownership in the SRR.
