The Blockchain art exchange is simply put a place where artists can make unique ‘digital prints’ from any artwork, be it; video art, paintings, digital photography, jewellery designs, graphic designs, 3d renderings or scans, fashion designs or VR experiences if its artistic we want it.  On the site we call our product crypto collectables but the best way to think of them is unique digital prints.

Blockchain technology has the power to make digital files, which includes images and videos, unique, trackable and tradable. This opens up a new form of art trading and exchange and creates a new way for artists to sell their work.

We use Ethereum blockchain as it is the first smart contract blockchain, having been proved longevity and already has many Apps running on it.

It’s a fancy technical name for the artworks/tokens on our site and how they relate to the blockchain. I won’t bore you with the details but if you’re interested in learning more head to their site http://erc721.org/

The same reason people buy physical art, it’s a unique collectable and they appreciate the artwork. An example of these people is found in crypto kitties where blockchain cats sell for over 100k pretty often.

During our beta/early access phase you will only be able to view artworks at a smaller capacity, videos will not be able to be played during this phase also.

But once the Beta /early access phase is over, we plan to create an B.A.E app compatible with all smart TVs, computers and smart phones, so you can view all mediums of artwork purchased and sold on the B.A.E platform.

The grading shown on each artwork reflect important objective information about the quality of the file. Depending on the type of file uploaded the grades reflect different qualities Why do we do this? We believe that an investment should last forever and be future proof these grading’s work to ensure that the buyer is fully aware of what they are buying.

It’s worth noting we are very harsh on our grading jpegs will score a D in file format and PPI of 300 is also a D which most artists would say is standard. We only give the best of the best an A grade. For works created on Photoshop, photography and scans the grading is different there is a much higher standard for DPI on scans than Photoshop.

Yes, wwe are listed on and compatible with other Ethereum non-fungible exchanges, you will also be able to trade artwork peer to peer with anyone with an Ethereum ERC-721 compatible wallet.

This past week the Blockchain art exchange launched its video art collection starting with the artist Debra Fear. This is the first time a blockchain art project has launched videos and as such our method needs some explanation. Here are a few questions that come up with our Video art.

Why is it on youtube

The simple answer to this is it is not. We upload a preview to Youtube when someone buys a token they gain access to the tokens main URL which contains a link to the full file.

Why editions

For all other art on the Blockchain art exchange it must be unique any images must follow this rule. Videos are different to other kinds of digital works for the simple reason that there is no real way of creating physical editions. For images you can print them for scans of artwork there is a original, when working with videos this is the only real way artists can get editions.

But we still don’t want to produce hundreds of them, so we only allow a maximum of 10 editions of any given video.

How do I get access to my large file?

at the moment our front end is still being worked on so there is no UI for getting the large file. This can be done by sending commands to our smart contract but an easier way for the time being is to get in touch after buying a video and we will facilitate the transfer. Or you can wait for the re launch of our exchange which will be in the coming months.
