Maecenas: The Decentralised Art Gallery

Presented by

Explore how Maecenas leverages Ethereum to track provenance, run art auctions and uses a currency-agnostic token to settle and clear multi-currency trades while hedging FX exposure.


Maecenas is the first open blockchain platform that democratises access to fine art. Maecenas leverages Ethereum to tokenise masterpieces and turn them into art shares that can be traded like company stocks. The platform relies on smart contracts to bring transparency into a traditionally opaque industry.
