Dear Friends and artists, Unfortunately the BAE was unable to launch on the 10th of December due to some last-minute polish needed on the exchange, what can I say we are perfectionists. We will be launching shortly if we haven’t already.
We have some incredible artists signed up for launch both weird and wonderful from all kinds of backgrounds and disciplines.
We have some truly ground-breaking use cases for this new media for producing and selling art, Ernesto Romano will be selling his brain scan on the platform which can be 3d printed at home you can really own an artist’s mind. Ernesto’s brain is just the first of many artworks that couldn’t have existed without the creation of the BAE.
The exchange is still very much in the BETA phase while our ERC-721 smart contract is in its final state, a lot of our features are not yet enabled at the front-end throughout 2019 we will be rolling these features out including; Print functions, collection tokenizing, smart tv integration and user uploads.
User uploads are coming very soon we wanted to make sure the site is working perfectly before we allowed anyone to upload this should be launched at the end of January.
2018 was a long year and the team here is so happy with what we have created a smart contract and platform by artist for artists with all the use cases that benefit artists-built in. something we haven’t spoken about much is licencing we can confirm that the BAE is tackling this problem in its own unique way (more information on this soon).
Finally, a message on freedom of expression
Freedom to express your artist intent should be a human right anyone with the help of the BAE can spread their message to the world, we are non-partisan and believe in freedom of speech and expression in all its forums if it’s not illegal we wont censor it and it has a place on our platform. Further once an artwork is on the BAE its also on the IPFS and the Ethereum blockchain so deleting it would be impossible.
