Blockchain: Good or Bad for Art and Artists?

An artistic project has launched a crowdfunding program to highlight the perceived negative influence of blockchain technology on art.

The project, based in the UK, aims to print an illustrated book titled: Artists Re:Thinking the Blockchain to explore the effects of this new technology on the artistic fields. The funding will also go towards hosting a public discourse program in London. The project underscores some artists’ uneasiness at the thought of this new technology being introduced into the world of art.
