Did you know all the artwork on our exchange is limited to one of one and so totally unique art?
Well it is why do we do this? In every industry there are different levels of scarcity and price. The Blockchain Art Exchange is the high-end gallery of the NFT space, all our artwork is the digital equivalent of a unique painting. For art created on Photoshop and video the Blockchain is the only way it can be provably unique.
So why did we decide to go this route? Scarcity we wanted the art sold on the BAE to be as scarce as possible. We felt that if the artist wants this feature there are plenty of places to go already.
Our goal instead is to make these one of one works as valued as possible. The way we chose to tackle this issue is to link all the tokens to a high-resolution file which can be accessed by the owner of an artwork. This will allow the display on all future screen types depending on the grade of artwork submitted. The grades you will see on our works correspond to these file values an A* scan would need to have the quality of the google giga pixel camera.

Trust is key
Another important aspect for this art to be valuable is trust. Our team has worked in art for an extensive amount of time and all our artists are directly submitted copyright is always respected to the highest level. This is of course vital for this industry our fellow company’s exploring this industry have taken different tacks. The BAE has found its place as the high value art gallery of the digital space quantity over quality. That is not to say there is anything wrong with quantity and having editions its just not our plan, who really knows what works no one yet.
Having single editions goes back experience in watching art auctions, how the single edition work always is the most valued. Also, digital files have been available in infinite editions for a long time with the power of Blockchain there can be only one!
A final thought on this idea; can photography ever be the original? You’re always buying a print for analogue cameras the negative is the photo, but people buy prints. For digital from RAW file or the post Photoshop file is the original but you buy degrading prints. The only unique David Bailey photos are sold on our platform the same as any photographer on our exchange.
