Maecenas will democratise access to fine art by creating a decentralised art gallery — a truly open platform where anyone can own a piece of a Picasso. We are building a global art blockchain market where assets are traded quickly and fairly on a liquid exchange.
Investing in a Monet has always been beyond the reach of most people; purchasing a Rembrandt the privilege of only a few... until now. The opaque world of auction houses and banks, which allows them to charge exorbitant fees, has cut off fine art investment from efficient modern markets.
But it does not have to be that way.
With help from visionaries like you, we can democratise access to fine art by creating a decentralised art gallery — a truly open platform where anyone can own a piece of a Picasso. We are building a global art blockchain market where assets are traded quickly and fairly on a liquid exchange. Creating portfolios and trading shares in masterpieces will be available to everyone. We will convert million-dollar artworks into smaller digitised financial units that can be bought and sold easily — literally at a fraction of the cost.
For the first time, technology will allow investors, collectors and owners to exchange shares in paintings and sculptures instantly, akin to the way stocks of a company are traded today. Plus, top emerging artists will have a showcase for their work, free from the interference of middlemen.
For years, we have been building a secure and robust technology foundation for Maecenas, the world’s first blockchain-based fine art trading platform. This has been possible because we have assembled an exceptional team of experts and have built crucial relationships with galleries, collectors and authenticators. Now, with your support, we will be able to launch the platform, nurture this new investment network and turn a centuries-old industry mainstream.
Thanks to its resilience in downturns and to its capital appreciation, fine art has long been an attractive multi-billion asset class.
Now it will be open to all.
