Adobe creates system to validate authorship of NFTs

Adobe’s new tool to help prove authorship of digital works is now available in beta in Photoshop and other Adobe applications, according to announcement made on the 26th of october.

Called “Content Credentials,” the new tool will allow creators of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) to link their Adobe ID with their digital wallet. Thus, a resource will be enabled so that associated marketplaces can present a type of certificate of verification of the work, which can be used as proof of authenticity and originality by the author.

As of the time of announcement, OpenSea, Rarible, KnownOrigin, and SuperRare are allowed to embed Adobe credentials at the time of proof of authoring attributions for created NFTs.


In interview Granted to the Decoder podcast, Adobe Chief Product Executive Scott Belsky explained that the new functionality will be incorporated into the Photoshop menu as an option named “prepare as NFT”.

Belsky added that the authorship data created by the Content Credentials will be hosted on an IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) system. This system consists of a decentralized way of hosting files on a network in which the security of stored data is the responsibility of all members.

As NFTs are increasingly moving the market (US$2.3 billion in the October), the proof of authorship has become a central theme in discussions among all those involved, whether those who create the NFTs or those who collect.

Adobe’s tool will not make the spoofing in the NFT universe go extinct, but it will at least serve as a guarantee that that non-fungible token is authentic and original. But the decision to buy or not an NFT will be in the hands of the buyers.
