By having a transparent and openly accessible blockchain ledger that each piece of art is tied to, collectors and auction houses can make data-driven decisions and track the developing careers of artists as they create new work. In addition to transaction history, buyers can access information about the artist such as past exhibitions, critic reviews, and planned future works.
NFTs are already revolutionizing the digital art market, but Open Art Source is specifically bridging this capability with the existing world of physical fine art that hasn't been introduced yet, en masse.Getting Involved
Open Art Source is creating a global, transparent, secure, and fair marketplace for artists. By applying this emerging technology to a sector with outdated operations, they are revolutionizing the way that artists, collectors, and general consumers of art can participate in the world of fine art.
OAS plans to launch their beta platform this fall. If you're an artist, collector, or dealer interested in participating in the bridging of fine art with Web 3.0, sign up for their early access program here
. Additionally, OAS has launched their own NFT collection, Arties
, to help fund the technical development of the platform. As an NFT holder, you can gain special privileges and accesses to the platform, from discounted commission fees to features in curated art shows.
While OAS is just one of the many startups building on Stacks to secure NFTs onto the Bitcoin blockchain, they uniquely solve the real-world issues that come with the existing fine art market as well. Accessibility to fine art and verifiable ownership is just the beginning for this budding blockchain application. As new teams continue to build Bitcoin-secured NFT platforms on Stacks, we'll see NFTs play an increasingly important role in the realms of digital ownership and the decentralized creator economy.
