The Art of Blockchain Buy. Sell. Trust. The process of valuing, authenticating and acquiring art is due a 21st-century reboot. ArtPro is the go-to marketplace for private dealers and contemporary artists. It connects artists and buyers while dispensing with excessive fees and intermediaries.
ArtPro makes it easy for anyone to buy and sell art over the web. A user-friendly platform harnesses the many benefits of blockchain technology, enabling ArtPro to restore the trust that has long been missing from the art industry. Instead of relying on third party authenticators, ArtPro favours a consensus mechanism that delivers a secure, decentralized system.
ArtPro is creating the go-to marketplace for private dealers and contemporary artists,
with a strong focus on emerging talent. The ArtPro platform will open the art world to
the masses, making it possible for anyone to discover and purchase fine art online
without the excessive fees, intermediaries, and steep learning curve that have
traditionally made art available to only to the privileged and the well-connected.
Certificates of provenance, stored on the blockchain, attest to the authenticity of each
artwork on the ArtPro platform, but that is only the beginning.
ArtPro does not profess to unilaterally solve all of the problems afflicting the art industry. The ArtPro platform, however, will play a significant role in helping the art world to advance into the digital age, and in democratizing fine art for a global audience. ArtPro will operate as a platform that connects participants and stakeholders within the ArtPro ecosystem. The most visible manifestation of this will be the ArtPro website and dApp, which form an information-rich portal for accessing a complete suite of resources for art aficionados. Education and access to contemporary art are provided through a range of multimedia resources including articles, tutorials and videos. Aspiring investors will be guided through the fundamentals of appraising and acquiring fine art, from first steps to advanced strategies. Most importantly, buyers and sellers are connected, enabling art to be traded instantly using the APT token via the MetaMask browser or
in-app wallet. Developers are free to create dApps built upon the ArtPro protocol, and a reward fund will incentivize the development of meritorious projects. Features such as provenance reports and the ArtPro marketplace can be integrated into third party platforms via API, bringing artists and their work to a wider audience.
