Description

Interest and speculation in Blockchain technology have never been greater. Blockchain promoters promise a world in which Blockchain will be bigger than the Internet. The opportunities for wealth creation, they insist, are limitless. Undaunted by the hype, private equity investors and high net worth individuals are looking for ways to invest in “the technology of the century”.

Forward-thinking art investors, artists, collectors and galleries are already exploiting money-making opportunities in Blockchain. They are using the technology to build alternative platforms from which to create, share and purchase art. Pilot blockchain projects by some of the largest logistics and insurance companies in the world are also reshaping the way they move and protect art.

But how to judge which Blockchain opportunities in Art are real, viable and legitimate? What should investors consider – and what should they be wary of – when considering investments in the upstart technology?

The industry research report How to Make and Protect Investments in Art through Blockchain Technology answers those questions and more.
