Artist Poesy Liang And LuxTag Launch Crypto Shop for Blockchain Registered Art
Artist Poesy Liang and anti-counterfeit solution provider LuxTag rejoined forces to launch a specialized online crypto shop on Sunday 11th of November 11:11am (Kuala Lumpur). The crypto shop has the purpose of releasing 120 limited-edition prints of “Fly Me To The Moon Harry Putter” by the artist. The website named Crypto to the Moon can be found at this address https://poesy.shop.
The launched online shop is unique as it exclusively receives payments in 2 cryptocurrencies Bitcoin and XEM, and all physical art pieces on offer are tagged and registered by LuxTag on the NEM Blockchain. This technology works as an immutable database, and allows customers to track the origins and provenance of the artworks, as well as contributing to their unique history. Blockchain is in fact a revolutionary technology, transforming many sectors, one of the most important being the art industry. The art market places high value on recording of history and provenance of art pieces, which blockchain technology can do.
The partnership between LuxTag and Poesy started in the summer of 2018 with the first project being called “Provenance Tracking”. With it, Poesy integrated LuxTag’s technology into the her art pieces. LuxTag provides a comprehensive tagging solution to track the provenance of art pieces, whilst offering smart contracts and multi-signature features. This crypto shop is the second project of this partnership, following “Provenance Tracking”.
The collaboration though, is not limited to these two projects. LuxTag and Poesy joined forces to build on solutions with the blockchain technology to augment the art sector. The art world has always been deeply affected by counterfeits and thefts, and LuxTag’s innovative solution could help curtail these issues by ensuring high transparency and the traceability of items.
