Brining Art and Blockchain Together

4 May

Have you heard of blockchain? A blockchain is a growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked using cryptography. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data. By design, a blockchain is resistant to modification of the data because if the information is modified there is always a copy of thr chain in the cloud.

Snark Art is helping artists bring to life a new genre of art using blockchain. As an artist, it’s challenging to sell your work. Now this group is working to bring art and blockchain together by letting artists sell each piece of their art as unique block. Each one is secure and verified. If you are an artist, you should check out this service.
