How we create value

We select and acquire the art

Our expert team selects artists that have the most momentum and purchases the best paintings at attractive prices to offer on our platform.

We create digital shares of the art

Based on blockchain technology, we create shares representing the painting. Your investment is 100% backed by the physical asset.

We hold the art for up to 5 years

During this time we constantly evaluate the market until we sell the painting and you receive your share of the profit.

Digital Investment Portfolio

With our digital platform you can view, buy and sell shares in one place. For each artwork in our marketplace we provide transparent background and market data.
You can now invest in fine art on any device, anytime, anywhere.

Reduced Risk with Tangible Assets

The art market has very little correlation to other assets and is predicted to double in the next 10 years. In times of inflation and uncertainty around currencies and cryptos, we believe that fine art plays a key role in diversifying your portfolio.

When you buy shares on our platform, you can be sure that your investment is 100% backed by the physical artwork.
