DappReview x MakersPlace


2 years ago

MakersPlace is an online rare digital art gallery that helps artists and collectors to fully utilize blockchain technology in order to create, sell and buy rare digital art. For anyone unfamiliar, rare digital art is digital art with authenticity, rarity and proof of ownership guaranteed by blockchain technology.

Since our inception two years ago, we’ve witnessed the NFT industry explode with people from all walks of life and all over the world engaging in this new economy. While this growth is exciting, it has also ignited a rise in blockchain related scams. The health of this new economy is contingent on maintaining a legitimate and accessible environment, which is why we are thrilled at the chance to partner with DappReview, a platform that is doing just that.

MakersPlace and the Birth of Rare Digital Art Market

MakersPlace is the world’s premier rare digital art gallery and marketplace. We are empowering digital creators from around the world to exhibit and sell their digital artworks.
The introduction of blockchain technology has transformed digital art creation and collection for the better: Now artists can protect and authenticate their work with indelible digital signatures (courtesy of the blockchain.) Collectors can now rest assured that the artwork they’ve purchased is an authenticated original or rare edition which can not be copied. Principles of rarity can finally be applied to the digital art world.

Blockchain has provided a way to establish rarity and prove authenticity in the digital art world, but it’s more than that. Today’s emerging digital art market is destroying boundaries -- Artists and collectors are no longer bound by location barriers. Art can now be consumed in a dynamic and immersive way, rather than remaining limited by physical constraints of stillness. For the first time ever, digital art has joined physical art in becoming a viable asset or investment that can be held and appreciated or sold on a secondary market. Rare digital art is blossoming into not only a new art market but a new culture, and we at MakersPlace are grateful to be at the forefront of it.

MakersPlace Artist Showcase

Today MakersPlace hosts the creations of acclaimed artists from around the world, many of whom are crossing over from traditional physical art spaces. For many, rare digital art provides an outlet for unfiltered creative expression, not to mention a source of financial support. Across styles, mediums, and backgrounds our artists have one thing in common -- the drive to create high quality artworks that make lasting impressions on viewers. Check out some of the work from our popular artists below!
