Maecenas:艺术品市场迎来区块链投资时代

Maecenas是一家艺术投资平台,旨在利用区块链技术把资本市场高效、流通的特点带入艺术品市场。平台提供实时市场反馈,也提供初级市场及次级市场,让投资者能够部分拥有可实时交易的艺术品。

具体来说,Maecenas的任务就是匹配艺术品收藏者与投资者,创造公平公开的市场,降低交易费用,让雾里看花的传统市场透明公开。任何投资者都可获得艺术珍品的部分股权。

Maecenas的创建者使用区块链技术公开交易,让价值超过100万美元的艺术品可像流通金融产品一样实时交易。这样一来,昂贵且流通性差的艺术品就被转化为单价更低、更便于交易的单位金融产品,这一点与可通过公开交易频繁买卖的公司股票极为相似。投资经理能够更加准确地定位,通过投资不同的艺术品分散风险,而非把资金集中于少量难以出售的艺术品上。

投资者每笔交易仅需支付交易额2%的费用,而对收藏者来说,相较于拍卖行收费高达30%,在平台上仅需支付已登记艺术品价值总额的6%。公司的创立者认为艺术品市场300多年来并没有太大的改变,但越来越多人把艺术品作为备选投资,现在早已到了重塑这一市场的时刻。

Maecenas使大众可接触艺术品市场,让投资者获得各种昂贵艺术品的股份,且任意时候都可根据自己的心意调整投资组合。同时,艺术品拥有者、收藏者及美术馆获得融资花费更少,他们仅需把拥有珍藏的49%登记在册,无需失去艺术品的所有权即可获得资金。

目前,Maecenas正在Seedrs上进行众筹活动,筹集初始创立的额外资金,最低目标金额为40万英镑,提供12.4%的股权。现在公司已经获得瑞士风投公司 Polytech Investors 20万英镑投资。 Maecenas也吸引了许多想在平台上登记艺术品的画廊和收藏家的兴趣。

Maecenas目标客户为有意把艺术品加入投资组合中、经验丰富的投资者。根据近期研究表明,主要包括以下几类:88%的家庭理财办公室、75%的高资产净值及超高资产净值的个人、64%的银行。投资者要想部分拥有一件登记在平台的艺术品,最少要投资5000美元;而要开一个投资账户,首次存款需达50000美元。

Maecenas is an art investment platform aiming to bring the efficiency and liquidity of capital markets to the art market using a blockchain. The platform will provide live market feeds and a primary and secondary market in which investors will have fractional ownership of works art, which can be traded in real time.

Maecenas will match art owners with investors, creating a fair and open market, reducing costs and bringing transparency to a traditionally opaque world, said a release. It will allow any investor to have a fractional share of a masterpiece.

Its creators are using Blockchain technology to create an open exchange where works of art valued at more than $1m can be traded in real time as liquid financial units. Expensive and illiquid artworks can be now be converted into smaller and more liquid tradable financial units, very much like shares of a company, which could then be traded frequently through an open exchange. Portfolio managers could then price their positions more accurately, and could diversify their risk by investing in a range of different art assets as opposed to having their funds concentrated in a handful of pieces which can be hard to sell.

Co-founder and CEO Marcelo Garcia Casil said: "We want to create a fair and open marketplace where investors and art owners can meet without intermediaries. We are using technology to revolutionise the art finance market, reducing costs, introducing transparency and creating liquidity. We are creating a new way to invest in fine art. Our ambition is to make the art industry a better place for everyone.

"It is time for art to be become a first-class citizen within capital markets, and to have rich market data feeds, order books, indices and even derivative markets. A blockchain-enabled marketplace can make it happen".

Investors will be charged a fee of just 2% per transaction while owners pay 6% of the listed amount for their piece of art – this compares with auction house fees of up to 30%. Its founders believe the fine art market has been largely unchanged for more than 300 years and is ripe for disruption, with increasing interest in art as an alternative investment.

It will democratise access to the art market, allowing investors to own shares in a wide range of high-value pieces of art, creating a diverse portfolio which they can adjust whenever they want. Meanwhile, art owners, collectors and galleries will have much cheaper access to capital, allowing them to raise finance without losing ownership of their asset as they can only list up to 49% of its value.

Maecenas is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs to raise additional finance for its launch, with a minimum target of £400,000, and is offering 12.4% of equity. It has already received £200,000 from a Swiss venture capital business, Polytech Investors. It has also attracted considerable interest from galleries and collectors who want to list pieces of art on the platform.

It is targeting sophisticated investors who want to have art in their portfolio – a category that includes 88% of family offices, 75% of high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals and 64% of banks, according to recent research. Investors must put in a minimum investment of $5,000 to part-own a piece of art listed on the platform and pay an initial deposit of $50,000 to open an investor account.
