Sign up for our awesome New York
Tech Events weekly email newsletter.
BuroHQ is excited to present its next event - Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, & Art.
Welcome, state of the blockchain! Blockchain, Decentralized Art & content monetization, Art Public Offerings (APO). Digital Artists & how blockchain is changing the art world?
Crypto world has finally gone crazy. Join us to find out why. What are Crypto Kitties & how they broke Ethereum? Why people pay thousands of dollars for a digital picture of a cat? The only meetup where you can earn cryptocurrency. Collectible digital art is a real, fully functioning blockchain use case that people love. It's time for creators & supporters of rare digital art to get together in New York City to meet & exchange ideas about the future of the medium. From "Crypto Kitties" to the recent explosion into the mainstream consciousness, it is clear that rare digital art is more than just a fringe movement experiment. CryptoKitties is bringing cats to the blockchain. The collectible, breedable, & adorable CryptoKitties aim to make blockchain technology accessible to everyday consumers by putting a furry face on the concept of digital collectibles. With each CryptoKitties unique 256-bit genome empower nearly 4-billion potential genetic combinations! The trading offer shares of artworks (similar to the stock exchange), a listing of art through Art Public Offerings (APO), & art valuation. Perhaps you have heard of John Myatt, the famous forger behind the biggest art fraud of the 20th century. Myatt recreated over 200 art pieces from famous 19th & 20th-century painters. His fakes were so genuine that auction house experts valued them at enormous prices & buyers were tricked. Such deceptions & sophisticated forgeries are not an isolated case, nor are they decreasing. The fine art world could harness Blockchain to solve some of its issues. In fact, 2016 has even been labeled the year of the fake for the complex art forgery scandals it brought. While many consider Blockchain to be a disruptive technology that could have a transformative effect on our global economy. The actual system of transferring fine art suffers from great opacity that makes it difficult to track provenance & the movement of items. Transaction records are still paper-based most of the time, which exposes them to a plethora of risks - they can be easily lost, destroyed, altered or stolen.
