First of all, I would like to welcome you with open arms to Collectors Proof. What is Collectors Proof? Good questions. Collectors Proof is a system that is used to categorize everything. Yes, everything. If you want to list a pie, a tree, your right sock, your car, a blade of grass, you can do it. Notice how I said "system" and not website. Collectors Proof online is a way to add and view items. Sure, you can do a ton more like send message, leave comments, transfer items, and more, but there is also an offline component. See, we've developed a patented identification algorithm which allows everyone in the world to have over one million items. You read that correctly. One million items for each of the over six billion people in the world. Pretty cool, right? Each item has its own dedicated detail page where you, the owner of the item, can add and update information on that item whenever you want and it keeps a timestamped, versionable, viewable history for all to see. Also, since this data lives offline as well as online, you can get tags which you can put on your items that will display a QR code as well as the ID so anyone and everyone may quickly reference that item's detail page on the site. What does this mean to you? You may have a complete, historical record of all changes to an item. Now here's where it get really awesome. Say you want to get rid of an item. No problem, you can generate a claim code an item, give it to the person who is going to take the item, and they can claim the item. Now the item is in their control and as long as they don't set it as private, you can keep watching what happens to your item. Call it security, call it piece of mind, call it fun, call it whatever you want; Collectors Proof will hold all data for you. Sure, this is long winded and most of it can be seen on the "About Collectors Proof" page, but you took the time to read it which is very important to us. For future posts, we will mostly talk about what's new with the site, things you should be aware of, as well as things happening in the world of collectors worldwide. We will post news excerpts and blog snippets from reputable collectors, traders, sports superstars, and more. You may also subscribe to our feed so you can be the first to know about our latest thoughts and happenings and tidbits. For those more technical minded, we also have a developer blog which can be located at the bottom of every page which will discuss our more technical features, bug fixes, system updates, and other geeky stuff. Once again, thank you for staying until the end of this. We hope that you use our system for a long time and if you have any questions, concerns, and so on, please don't hesitate to contact us. There is a link at the bottom of every page.

I'm liking this so far... just getting started with the process but as a long time collector and tech geek I have attempted many ways to track/log/share my life long tokens of adventures and this is looking to be the best so far. Really cool work CP ... I need to check out the DevBlog more.
