The world has changed immeasurably over the past 300 years, save for the artworld which has stagnated. Stuffy and stuck in the past, it’s a multibillion dollar industry operating to eighteenth century standards. The way in which art is valued, authenticated, appraised, auctioned, acquired and appreciated is virtually the same today as it was three centuries ago. It’s an industry which is cloistered, elitist and riven with inefficiencies that disadvantage buyers and sellers alike. ArtPro is creating the go-to marketplace for private dealers and contemporary artists, with a strong focus on emerging talent.
There are quite a few players in the blockchain industry who are working on implementing systems using distributed ledger technology in areas of authentication and provenance, sales and auctions, insurance and art logistics. @ArtProPlatform is one of them.
