GBX ceo

Nick Cowan, CEO of the GSX Group, commented:

“It’s a great pleasure to welcome Maecenas and their ART token to the GBX Digital Asset Exchange. We strive to create a world-leading, institutional-grade platform, and the addition of tokens like ART continues to show the power of the GBX.”



About Maecenas’ ART

Maecenas is a decentralised art gallery auction market, aimed to democratise access to fine art. It is a blockchain-driven platform where fractionalized pieces of fine art are bought and sold. Maecenas uses blockchain technology to create tamper-proof digital certificates linked to pieces of art.

After launching its beta platform in June, Maecenas has successfully tokenised a $5.6m painting by Andy Warhol, which was acquired by a number of different investors who participated in the first-ever decentralised Dutch auction for an art run on the Ethereum network.

The ART token is a utility token that is used to settle transactions on the platform. The token acts as a clearing and settlement mechanism that Maecenas uses to issue tokenised pieces of art. Maecenas will soon unveil a new model for their token economics which will significantly improve the token utility.
