The Art Exchange combines three categories of instruments to build a comprehensive financial solution for the art world:
A collector brings in an art piece to be either sold fractionally or to borrow money against it. The artwork is tokenized and listed on the platform with the desired specifications. Multiple investors either buy fractions of the artwork or lend money to the collector.
The collector pays off the loan and the accumulated interest to the investors. If the art piece was offered for sale, The Art Exchange team will sell it in the most favorable moment to fetch a higher price. The proceedings are shared with investors in proportion to their share of ownership in the artwork.
The Art Exchange experts cherry-pick the most interesting artwork among those to be offered on the evening sales by one of the auction houses and transfer the price to blockchain.
On the platform, registered users can “bet” against each other, hedge the risks or create complex financial contracts on the outcome of the future sale. After the art piece is sold, the contracts are self-executed and the winning party receives money.
