    Authenticity refers to the quality of being original and genuine. In the context of digital assets and blockchain, authenticity refers to the ability to verify that a particular digital asset is what it purports to be. For example, in a transfer of ownership of a digital asset like Bitcoin, both parties must agree on its current value and authenticity. A digital certificate is considered authentic if the Certificate Authority (CA) verifies it and the certificate has not been tampered with.
