  • Quote: “Each token of the artwork is ERC721 and are collectible like a CryptoKitty or Cryptopunk. They add up to being something, but each one is its own piece of art. It plays in your crypto wallet or on the Snark.Art website. You can visualize the whole video within each 20 by 20 pixel square.

  • Quote: “Fanny Lakoubay, the chief marketing officer of Snark.art, a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based startup, already has been to many blockchain conferences, and she came away impressed by Cleveland's kickoff for a plan to build the region as a center for blockchain technology, especially the presence at the conference of students and nontechnical people.

    "What I really appreciated about the conference was the fact that people from various industries and schools were invited and interested in learning more about blockchain," Lakoubay said in an email after she had left the conference for an art show in Miami.

  • Publication: The Observer

  • Author: Clayton Schuster

  • Date: October 11, 2018

Most of these companies are one or two years old,” said Lakoubay. “They’re all trying to fight for a piece of the same pie. It very well may be winner takes all. They’re starting to focus on different kinds of art and luxury items, but there can’t be this many forever. It’s really the wild, wild West.” But even in such nascent stages, the possibilities for what blockchain could do for that other neigh-ungovernable frontier—art authentication—have a lot of artists and dealers calling this the new sheriff in town.”
