[Press Release Originally Published at PR Web, January 5th]
The emergence of the crypto art ecosystem offers a new market for digital artists, collectors and traders. Now art investing is no longer limited to physical forms. The creation of the NFT enables digital art works to be uniquely identified, offered for sale and treated as an investment. CryptoArtNet provides an entry point to this new art market.
Digital Art Collectibles Are Known As Crypto Art NFTs
Crypto art refers to any form of digital art that has an associated NFT or non-fungible token which functions as a certificate of authenticity. Using the NFT, one can buy and sell digital art on a variety of platforms that merge art gallery and trading floor. This new crypto art market is showing surprising growth in a few short years of existence.
Artists at all levels of development receive new sources of income as well as becoming part of a unique community. Collectors find engaging artwork at price points ranging from a few dollars to six figures. For those seeking to profit from art trades, secondary markets offer an increasingly profitable opportunity. To artists’ surprise, many of these secondary markets also offer royalties to artists on all resales.

How Does One Enter the World of Crypto Art?
Getting started in crypto art can be a bit confusing for artists and traders alike. The platforms and marketplaces rely on emergent blockchain technology and rapid innovation means there is much to learn.
The available options for buying and selling crypto art are quite diverse ranging from high-end platforms like Nifty Gateway and SuperRare to wild and woolly marketplaces like Rarible.
