ArtSquare.io’s first digital art listing is happening now. You can buy Digital Art Shares for Andy Warhol’s Kiku, the first artwork to be fractionalised in full in history, starting from € 1. We have devised the easiest and safest way possible to turn you into an Art Owner. Buying DAS of Kiku is as easy as paying for an Uber. Once you have created your Wallet on ArtSquare.io, just add funds by using your credit card—you can read more information on how our built-in Wallet works here. In the Listing section of the platform you can type in the amount of shares you want to buy and your order will be processed instantly. You are now an Art Owner.
ArtSquare.io empowers you with total control over your shares. Once you place a purchase order, money are withdrawn from your Wallet and DAS are added to your Portfolio. The Portfolio is the section of your account where you can keep an eye on your transactions: you can check the value of Digital Art Shares for each artwork —DAS are identified by a unique and intuitive ID code—, assess their growth, and check the status of your orders. In the Portfolio, you also have access to a Transaction Report where all your operations are gathered together. We will soon release an additional report feature that will allow you to plot your data and statistics into an easily legible graph.
We want our Art Investors to be able to give others the thrill of owning portions of an artwork for the first time. When you buy DAS during our Listing, you also have the chance to purchase them as gifts for another Art Investor —you only need to enter their email address. To be able to enjoy their gift, the receiver needs to claim your DAS within 15 days by Signing Up to ArtSquare.io as a new user or retrieve them through their Portfolio. When you decide to donate DAS to someone, Digital Art Shares will be transferred from your Portfolio to the receiver’s. ArtSquare.io believes that ownership of art should be a shared reality accessible to everybody. By donating DAS, you are making someone else part of the innovating and enriching experience of investing in world-class artworks digitally, easily, and flexibly.
Our Art FinTech platform is not only the first to sell a fractionalised artwork in full. It is also the first to turn art into a stress-free source of profits for a whole new category of players who rarely get to enter the art market. We are making history, and are proud to embark on this journey towards a more democratic art market with our exclusive community of Art Investors.
