  • What is a Blockchain and how can it help Artist/creators?

    A Blockchain is a publicly accessible online ledger (database), that is not owned by any central authority. Once anything is set in this ledger, it cannot be modified or censored by any single authority. Blockchain technology provides the following benefits to creators:

    • Scarcity: When you upload your creation to the Blockchain, you can define the number of editions you want to release. The control and distribution of the editions is automated on the Blockchain, so you can tightly manage the scarcity of your creations. No more than the defined number of editions, will ever be released.

    • Authenticity: When you upload your creation to the Blockchain, it cannot be changed thereafter. Buyers can trust that the artwork they are purchasing is the original and has not been tampered with, because the publicly accessible data on the Blockchain is always available to verify it. Even if other people copy it (as many tend to do online with digital content), the value of your artwork will not degrade, as long as the specific editions can be verified on the Blockchain.

    • Ownership: Every transfer/purchase of your creations, is recorded on the Blockchain. This means that there is a publicly accessible ownership history for your creations. Provenance is automated and accurate. Having a publicly accessible way to verify ownership will create more value for your creations since it'll be easier to identify infringing use of it. It'll also make it easier for you to support any DMCA takedown requests.

    Each of these benefits is inherently available to you, just by using the Blockchain. Even if ByteART ceases to exist, your NFT artwotk will forever remain on the Blockchain. 

    Like any technology however, Blockchain isn't immune to risks. Please reference our Terms of Service if you'd like to learn more.

  • Non-fungible token (NFT)
    ByteART uniquely generates a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) for every Artwork published. This token is what provides proof of ownership and authenticity of your artwork.

    We also use an Ethereum open standard (ERC-721), which means that any artwork is immediately available on 3rd party database and and marketplaces, giving your artwork additional visibility. This is the same standard that is used by the majority of blockchain-based digital assets like CryptoKitties and others.
  • What is a digital wallet?

    A digital wallet is software that manages your cryptocurrencies and also allows you to interact with Blockchain technologies like Bitcoin, Ethereum. ByteART uses your digital wallet to made paymen via Bitcoin Blockchain.and publish your NFT using the Ethereum Blockchain.
