Our mission is to make fine art investment accessible to everyone.

Interact directly — without intermediaries.

Buying ArtChips with a NFT token is buying a share– or ArtChip– in an artwork we offer.
ArtChips are transparent, fair and inclusive.

With ArtChips there are no lock-in periods if the artwork was sold within a 10 year period. You have the freedom to trade your ArtChip NFT token anytime on liquid asset selling sources and platforms.

Everyone can purchase and sell ArtChips.

ArtChips is about making fine art available to everyone, not just the ultra-wealthy.

By using blockchain technology we remove the need to have a central register to track asset ownership. By decentralizing artworks and functions in the project, we create an open ecosystem in which any other platform or market participant can see services related to tokenized fine art. Blockchain is an open protocol standard, and as such it fosters transparency and free market competition. We believe that by embracing these values, we can further Artessere’s mission to democratise access to the art market.

Non-fungible token (NFT)

  • A way to represent anything unique as an Ethereum-based asset.
  • NFTs are giving more power to content creators than ever before.
  • Powered by smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain.

The unique benefits of NFTs is the ability to track every transaction on the blockchain. Every ArtChips NFT has an owner, creator, history, ArtChips ID number and this information or "provenance" is verifiable on-chain. 
More details available on your personal profile under ArtChips - click on your ArtChips number - popup window - click on certificate or NFT.

Ownership of your holdings is protected by cryptographic keys, ERC 1155 or ERC 721 standard, which are virtually impossible to crack if you do not share your keys with third parties or do not thoroughly save them. If you're an institutional investor you will likely utilize an enterprise custody solution for digital assets. If you are an individual investor, you can use any of the safe blockchain hardware wallets currently available in the market. In the unlikely case that your cryptographic keys are lost or stolen, and provided that you have registered with our platform, it is possible to recover and/or re-issue your asset tokens after correctly ascertaining and verifying your identity and proof of purchase in form of different certificate, such as a certificate of authenticity (not as a substitute initial NFT).

ArtChips is a new method in the art democratization process using fractional ownership. ArtChips categorizes available artwork into 6 different groups.

 

Each category is described on the main page, such as Purple ArtChips, Green ArtChips, White ArtChips, Colored ArtChips, Gold ArtChips and Blue Art Chips. Each category focuses on a certain type of artwork, artist, or material used.

Similarly to how professional auction houses and some galleries operate, Artessere obtains third-party valuation through external parties or museums by experts in the particular artwork’s genre (taking into account the artist, the time period, medium, etc.). This valuation is cross-checked with our internal estimates.

It's possible but unlikely. The most likely scenario would be for the artwork to be stored in a purpose-built art storage facility that provides high-security access. This has the benefits of preserving the artwork in optimal conditions (humidity, temperature, lighting) and significantly lowering the risk of damage or theft, which is reflected in the lower premium that would be charged by the insurance company. It is also possible to store the artworks at museums or certain galleries given that they meet our guidelines and are approved by the insurance provider.

If a piece of artwork is damaged, lost, or stolen, the artwork’s insurance policy payment would be triggered and all investors would receive a pro-rata payout.

Liechtenstein is the first country to introduce a comprehensive regulation for the blockchain industry, for cryptocurrencies, utility tokens, payment tokens, stable coins, and digital securities like security tokens.

 

Liechtenstein’s Token and Trustworthy Technology Service Provider Act (TVTG), or Blockchain Act, came into force on January 1, 2020. It establishes the framework for the supervision of ten new categories of transaction systems, including blockchain-based offerings. The law also implements the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) recommendations, which provide for supervision under the Due Diligence Act (DDA) for such services.

 

The Liechtenstein Blockchain Laws, the Token and Trusted Technology Service Provider Act, defines that all blockchain companies and companies handling cryptocurrencies have to register and have to be approved by the Financial Market Authority (FMA) Liechtenstein.

New law not only creates legal certainty for providers and customers, but also improves customer protection and clarifies open questions in the application of the relevant laws. This applies especially in the areas of due diligence to combat money laundering, ensuring compliance with international standards and comprehensive and effective anti-money laundering (AML) measures.

 

More Information about the Blockchain Laws TVTG is available at the website of the Financial Market Authority Liechtenstein.

Article 12(1) at TVTG states that any natural person, legal person or a business with headquarters (registered office) or place of residence in Liechtenstein who wishes to act as TT Service Providers must apply to be entered into the TT Service Provider Register.

 

This also applies to Token Issuers who issue tokens in their own name or the name of a client in a nonprofessional capacity if tokens for CHF 5 million or more will be issued within a period of 12 months (Article 12(2) TVTG).

 

The new Liechtenstein Blockchain law regulates civil law issues concerning investor protection and asset protection. The legal framework also introduces adequate supervision of the various virtual asset service providers and crypto companies. The supervision of blockchain companies is conducted by the Financial Market Authority(FMA) in Liechtenstein. Liechtenstein is known for its AAA rating by Standard and Poor’s and its strict measures to combat Money-Laundry (AML) and Know-Your-Customer (KYC) requirements. This applies especially in the areas of due diligence to combat money laundering, ensuring compliance with international standards and comprehensive and effective anti-money laundering (AML) measures.

 

Any blockchain business, companies conducting token sales or using security tokens for fundraising can take advantage of Liechtenstein’s comprehensive blockchain legal framework. The Blockchain Laws not only improve investor protection and transparency but also gives rules and clarity for any token sale or crypto business.

 

According to TVTG any company or individual whose registered office or place of residence is in Liechtenstein and who wishes to act as a professional TT Service Provider, must be entered in the TT Service Provider Register of the FMA.
