Blockchain Technology and the Art Market




New Art Academy is excited to present its next event in Blockchain Technology and Art Market series.

Beatriz Helena Ramos, the CEO of DADA, will share how and why this social network is using blockchain technology to create a peer-to-peer economy that will benefit the entire DADA community, from artists to collectors, to investors. She will discuss how DADA is creating digital scarcity, how this marketplace is run by smart contracts without intermediaries, as well as what are the implications for the art industry of an emerging digital art market worth billions of dollars.

Patrick O’Grady, CTO of Asset Exchange Yosemite and Miranda Guo, Director of Alternative Assets, will share insights on the platform which offers trading shares of artworks (similar to traditional stock exchange), a listing of art through Art Public Offerings (APO), and art valuation. Patrick is going to present live from the NeueHouse.
