Art is not the first thing that crosses our mind when we think about blockchain and cryptocurrencies. With ‘currency’ being the hottest topic, other cool stuff is often sidelined when it comes to all things crypto.
Developers have created art spaces for artists to showcase their talent. So, here we are telling all the art hoes out there to be part of this.
After much evaluation, we have compiled some of the reasons why you should be involved in this.
Plagiarism is one of the most common problems when it comes to art. Blockchain combats this problem very easily as it allows the artist or the creator to sign transactions as they are added to blockchain and since no one can fool around the decentralized ledger, everything remains safe.
What you make is yours to keep. As long as you hold the wheel, you’re the one driving unless you pass the wheel to someone else yourself!
*blockchain, take the wheel
The artists can easily remain anonymous. For my introvert art buddies who aren’t confident about their work and sell it from the comfort of their home. They never have to leave the house and interact or even reveal their identity to anybody. Sounds relaxing.
It paves way for commissioned work. When the artist makes something, they can easily prove if it was them or not. Artists can be paid every time their art is used.
This one’s fairly obvious. We are all aware that the blockchain market is global and knows no boundaries. All you need is a computer and a high-speed connection and voila! You’re good to go. Empowered only by internet, artists can participate and sell on a global marketplace.
This is an undeniable advantage for any industry. The art auctions are a dark place where your talent doesn’t matter and it all comes down to money in the end. However, with a decentralized system; tools and guidelines are there to reduce the power of middleman and completely eliminate them. You don’t need anyone to show your talent which increases the autonomy of artists.
The supply of artwork in unlimited. The number linked with every piece can be tracked through a decentralized ledger. Once the supply has been fixed, it cannot be changed.
Digital art was always a risky business because of art theft. I have so many people who face that and people continue to do it shamelessly while these artists are trying to make ends meet at their side. Digital art is often valued for its relevance and ability to spread. Now with this, art can be sold in a digital native manner, memes and art can capture current events and be shared in real time.
Once its out, it cannot be deleted.
The digital art revolution is on its way. With a rare Pepe card, Homer pepe sold for $35,000 and CryptoKitties have been sold at an average price of $65. Artists finally are getting justice because of the blessings of Satoshi Nakamoto.
