Posted October 02, 2018 08:47:47 Digital certificates, or digital paintings, are already being sold in Australia, with digital certificates now becoming part of the Australian Digital Certificate scheme.
Digital certificates, also known as digital realty certificates, are digital certificates issued by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to individuals and businesses to authenticate their identities, create online records, and store digital images.
The scheme, which allows individuals and small businesses to purchase digital certificates for use on their personal computers and smartphones, has attracted much interest from the public, with many businesses including pharmacies and banks saying they would like to see the scheme introduced.
But digital certificates aren’t as easy to get as a certificate of title.
The Australian Bureau can only issue digital certificates to individuals, businesses and the public for up to $20,000, but it can issue digital real estate certificates, which are $100,000.
As the scheme has been introduced, some online retailers have started offering certificates for sale, including a digital paint business in Queensland, which has been offering certificates to its customers since October.
Digital paint is a paint made with digital ink, or pigment, and is used for creating abstract designs.
Digital painting certificates have been issued to a number of businesses, including the local paint shop of Queensland, The Paint Shop, which was granted digital paint certificates for $15,000 in January, 2017.
The owner of the paint shop, who wanted to remain anonymous, said the company was offering digital certificates because the paint would have to be digitally signed and then registered with the local government, a process which could take up to four weeks.
“There’s a lot of pressure on local governments to issue digital paint for this reason,” he said.
“But they don’t have to do it for everything.
If it’s just painting, they can do it.”
In the last year or so, a lot more companies have started issuing digital certificates.
“They just have to sign up to the scheme.
They’re not issued.”
Mr Prentice said the paint business was now selling digital certificates, and he hoped the scheme would become popular in the coming months.
“We’ve got lots of interest,” he he said of the new scheme.
“It’s going to be a big opportunity for us.”
A spokeswoman for the Queensland Government said digital certificates were a “legal and regulatory requirement for the use of digital assets in Queensland”.
“Digital assets, such as digital certificates and digital real property, are issued by government agencies to individuals or businesses and must be registered by the local authorities,” the spokeswoman said.
