In a blog post last year, Maecenas’ Co-Founder & CEO, Marcelo Garcia Casil, said: “If Maecenas were an economy, then ART would be its currency.”

If you’ve been following our progress and are considering becoming part of the Maecenas platform, then you’ll likely be wondering where to go to make a cryptocurrency investment in our ART tokens.

We’re working incredibly hard to get Maecenas’ ART tokens onto major exchanges so they’re more widely available. The ART token is currently listed on Gibraltar ExchangeHitBTC, EtherDelta, EtherShiftCryptalDashIndaCoin and we’re also in discussions with other exchanges to get ART issued on them as well. 

If you’d like to keep an eye on the future exchanges that the ART token may appear on and to keep track of the market cap of the ART token, you can do so through our page on the CoinMarketCap website and find out more about Maecenas’ progress through our Telegram group.

We believe the ART token brings benefits for art lovers as much as crypto investors. We’re looking to fix a lot of the perceived problems of the international art market with the Maecenas platform, using blockchain technology to improve issues such as transparency, provenance, artwork valuation and more, bringing artists, investors, buyers, sellers and art lovers together and democratising the art industry.

Those goals simply can’t be achieved without our ART tokens, which will also provide accredited investors with the potential to purchase fractional digital interests in some of the world’s most celebrated artworks.

Considering ART tokens as a cryptocurrency investment

The full potential of what we wish to achieve with the Maecenas platform can be read in our briefing documents. However, people also often ask us where to buy ART tokens and how to participate in the “Maecenas economy” to help further the democratisation of the art market.

The ART token is a necessity for all functions performed by the Maecenas platform, thanks to its smart contracts developed on the Ethereum network.

So, how do you adopt ART tokens as part of your cryptocurrency investment strategy? There are a finite amount of ART tokens available, with some already issued during a public crowd sale from September 7th last year.

At the time our ratio for ART tokens stood at:

  • 30% sold in the crowdsale.
  • 30% kept as reserve liquidity fund.
  • 20% allocated to incentivise partners and client acquisition.
  • 20% retained by Maecenas.

The ART token though shouldn’t just be looked in singularity as a cryptocurrency investment. It’s a key part of what is set to be a wider art community that’s already growing, and part of a wider economy with designs set on bringing the current art market into the future.

The art market has effectively stayed the same for centuries. We feel that the time is right to open it wider, make it more transparent and democratic with the Maecenas platform, fuelled by the ART token.

If you’d like to find out more about Maecenas’ ART tokens, you can find out more through our FAQ, joining our group on Telegram or by downloading our briefing documents.

Blockchain Art Chipping – Still a Work In Progress

Buying and selling artworks online has revolutionised the way the art market works.

The 2018 annual Hiscox report found more than 50% of collectors were held back from buying works of art online due to the fear of buying a fake.
