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.

The Problem

  • ART AS THE STORE FOR WEALTH
    Art has long been valued for more than its beauty. From Old Masters to contemporary pieces, art has been used as a store for wealth for people wanting to invest in assets that are largely immune to the movement of the financial markets. The chain of title, however, is as valuable as the work itself with complete provenance correlating with higher returns.
  • THE GREATEST THREAT
    As much as 30% of all art sales are believed to involve forged pieces. The Deloitte Art & Finance Report 2017 lists ‘authenticity, lack of provenance, forgery, and attribution’ as ‘the greatest threat to the reputation of the art market’.
  • BARRIERS TO GROWTH
    The online art market is yet to reach maturity and efforts to promote its growth have been futile because buyers’ concerns haven’t been addressed. The lack of transparency surrounding both condition and pricing, a shortfall of available information to educate buyers about the art and the reliability of the authenticity of a piece have been preventing the conversion between browser and buyer.
By combining traditional authentication methods with digital techniques, ArtPro solves the provenance problem.
– Oliver Hams, Co-founder & CEO

The Solution & Platform

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.

How It Works

  • Connects participants and stakeholders
  • Allows art to be browsed and filtered by type, price, artist and style
  • Acts as an information-rich portal for art lovers
  • Provides strategies for appraising and acquiring art
  • Enables transactions using the native APT token
For those who say the online art market has had its day – it hasn’t even had its morning yet, it’s still waking up
– Robert Read, Head of Art & Private Clients at HISCOX (Art Market Report 2017)

Features

  • CATALOGUE OF AVAILABLE WORKS

  • PROVENANCE
    Digital certificates stored on the blockchain provide complete provenance for every piece of art on the ArtPro platform
  • USER RATING SYSTEM
    The ArtPro Marketplace uses a rating system to encourage transparency, set buyer and seller standards and drive confidence

Roadmap

What They Say

Laura García
La Sala Art
ArtPro Platform has to the potential to provide our artists with global exposure to buyers and collectors we perhaps didn’t have reach too. The fact that the APT token is locked into a smart contract gives us the confidence to ship our artists work worldwide.
Alfredo Romero
Artist
My work is my passion and the ArtPro Platform gives me complete confidence that when my work is added to the blockchain, it is protected from forgeries. My art holds history and knowing that there will be an unbreakable chain of title in years to come gives my legacy security.
Benjamin Phillips
Artist
As an artist, protecting my work is of paramount importance to me. The use of blockchain technology that will protect my work in years to come is a pleasing thought. Couple that with the ability to purchase work in Crypto Currency and the added security of the transaction via smart contract, I’m in!

Ashleigh Ulysses
Co-Founder & COO
Ashleigh’s passion for business operations and development lies in her desire to understand the motivations of everything, from the company ethos to the psychology of the target audience. Working with long established companies and aiding start-ups proved that many companies have the resources at hand but lacked the knowledge and direction to implement measurable changes. Ashleigh believes in an ‘inside-out’, organic approach to development. Her most proud business achievement lay in reforming a family-oriented building contractor with cash flow issues and dwindling contracts. Identifying their core strengths as well as issues requiring immediate attention allowed her to implement changes that re-launched it as a market leader. Winning national contracts for retailers such as Boots PLC and Superdrug and growing the team and turnover in the process.
Being a late adopter of ‘crypto-fever’ has not hampered Ashleigh’s development in the field; her traditional approach to business paired with her fascination for blockchain-based solutions in the modern world is helping to shape the future of ArtPro.
