最近，Olivier Sarrouy创建了一个名为“Ready-Made token”的艺术项目，通过The Distributed Gallery将一个以太坊令牌投入拍卖，并署名一个叫“Richard Price”的化名......尽管Richard Price是一位著名的艺术家而不是一个化名。Olivier声称，这是为了证明如果想让现实世界中的某个物件更具价值，那就让艺术界大名鼎鼎的人署个名。
Maecenas是一个以区块链为依托的艺术品拍卖平台。任何人都可以使用该平台，但对于私人测试版，只有100名授信投资者可以参与。本网站收集所有的“了解客户”（KYC）信息，因为所有艺术品都是相当值钱的作品，价值100万美元以上。您可以以5,000美元及以上的比特币，以太币或Marcenas ART令牌等价购买艺术份额。使用ART令牌，用户可以免除2％的买家手续费用来体验或建设虚拟货币的网络效应。 Maecenas平台上的智能合约可将流通的加密货币转换为ART令牌。
我们已经说了艺术，那么现在来说说互联网文化。谈到艺术和区块链，那么就不得不提及Rare Pepes。Rare Pepes因在2015年在eBay上发布了一件藏品后而震惊全网。现在，它们是数字资产交易卡，其所有权通过Rare Pepe Directory记录于比特币区块链，或通过Pepe dApp记录于以太坊区块链。其拥有Pepe Cash币和Rare Pepe钱包，以及Book of Orbs——一个可在手机上使用的移动Counterparty钱包，人们花了数千美元购买Pepe。 一个Homer Pepe卡片价值350,000 Pepecash或39,000美元。
The blockchain is changing the art world for the better via digital scarcity, allowing more people to invest in fine art, and creating a more ethical way of paying artists.
It is really easy to copy and pirate artists’ work which diminishes the value of their originals. Similar to having only 21 million Bitcoins, digital art is limited and may only have 100 copies to be sold. Logging art ownership on the blockchain can help reduce fraud and allows for artists to receive payment for their art in a way that is quicker than traditional platforms, all while cutting out intermediaries. This allows for a more significant percentage to go towards artist compensation. Platforms like Maecenas allows people that are not wealthy or accredited investors to invest in fine art, which has proven to be one of the greatest ways to grow your money.
Recently, Olivier Sarrouy created an art project called “Ready- Made token” putting a single Ethereum token up for auction via The Distributed Gallery and signed it under the pseudonym “Richard Price” …even though Richard Prince is a well-known artist and not a random pseudonym. Olivier claims this was to make a point about how a regular object from the real world has more value because someone well known in the art world signed it.
Maecenas is a platform that has Blockchain based auctions of fine art. Anyone can use the platform, but for the private beta, only 100 accredited investors could participate. This site collects all of your Know Your Customer (KYC) information because all of the art pieces are blue-chip works with one million USD and above. You can buy shares of fine art for $5,000 and upwards of Bitcoin, Ethereum or Marcenas ART token equivalent. Using the ART token users get the 2% buyer fee waived to try and build up the coin’s network effect. Smart Contracts on the Maecenas platform will convert the cryptocurrency being used into ART tokens.
So we’ve touched on fine art and now …internet memes. We can’t talk about art and the blockchain without mentioning Rare Pepes. Rare Pepes became an internet sensation in 2015 after a collection was posted on eBay. Now they are digital asset trading cards with their ownership logged the Bitcoin blockchain, via the Rare Pepe Directory, or Ethereum blockchain via Pepe dApp. There is a Pepe Cash coin, and a Rare Pepe wallet, Book of Orbs- a mobile Counterparty wallet to use on your phone, and people have spent thousands of dollars on Pepe. One Homer Pepe sold for 350,000 Pepecash or $39,000 USD.
Remember Kodak film in old-school cameras? Well, Kodak tried to make a comeback by integrating blockchain technology to the physical art world. They came up with KodakCoin which is described as a “photo-centric cryptocurrency” designed to help photographers and agencies with image rights management.” This was to be coupled with a Bitcoin-mining computer called the Kodak KashMiner. Users would pay $3,400 to rent the machine for two years. Additionally, half of the coins mined would go back to Spotlite, the company licensing Kodak’s name, and the user would keep the other half.
