The cryptocurrency market is outclassing the art market by orders of magnitude, allowing us to turn our vision into a reality.

Giving art back to the public

  • Just like the banking system, the art maket has become a never-loose casino for a small elite of billionaires and influent art cartels who are setting prices and trends for their own profit.

 

  • Pieces of our cultural heritage bought through auction houses are held hostage in tax-free storage areas (known as Freeports) by their temporary owners between each sale : in 2013, Geneva Freeport held about 1.2 million works of art, making it the world's largest and most restricted museum.

 

  • Using our ACO (Art Coin Offering) model, art owners will be able to crowdsell pieces of their collection to anyone with internet access and a few Louvois Franc (LVF).
    By breaking down artworks digital certificates into thousands of cryptocurrency-like digital assets, we will allow the crowd to outcompete the few and help the sellers get the most money for their artworks.

 

  • Artworks will become the property of anyone who holds shares in it.
    Using a poweful blockchain voting technology, holders will be able to exercise their voting rights to participate in the life of the artwork (e.g., rental proposals, change of art management company) and will benefit equally from the profits generated.

Empowering the artists of tomorrow

  • Living of your art in 2018 is challenging, becoming a successful artist is virtually impossible unless you already have the money and right connections in the art market.

 

  • Powerful galleries are making billions deciding whichever random artist will become the next big thing in art, pocketing unhealthy commissions up to 60% while talented and meriting artists around the world are struggling.

 

  • Using our ACO (Art Coin Offering) model, promising artists will be able to raise funds from a worldwide range of patrons and investors to boost their careers and fund their art projects by creating their own cryptocurrencies.

 

  • Anyone with a computer and a few Louvois Franc (LVF) will be able to bet on the next big artist based on merit and talent : whenever an artist becomes successful, his cryptocurrency creates dividends and increases in value.

 

Trade art-backed cryptocurrencies

  • DLVEX will give you access to limitless opportunities in the global decentralized art market of tomorrow.

 

  • Just like any mainstream cryptocurrency exchange, you will be able to bet on the markets, identify and leverage new trends in the art world.

 

  • Using our platform and cryptocurrency, the Louvois Franc (LVF) you will be able to hold and trade tokenized shares in major artworks and promising artists cryptocurrencies for as low as $0.001 with minimal fees of 0.25% per trade.

 

Participate in art crowdsales

  • Bob wants to invest $1000 into art, he loves Francis Bacon but has nowhere near the means to buy that kind of artwork.

 

  • Luckily for him "Two Studies for Self Portrait" one of his favorite painting from the artist, is currently being sold to the public on DLVEX under the token name FB-TSP77.
  •  

  • When Bob participates 25$ worth of Louvois Franc (LVF) in his favorite's painting ACO he recieves 1 share in of the painting, in the form of a tradable cryptocurrency-like digital asset, making him co-owner of of the artwork. The more people participate in the artwork's ACO, the more valuable the it becomes.
  •  

  • Using our platform's cryptocurrency the "Louvois Franc" (LVF), investors and art-lovers can participate in art crowdsales (ACOs) and acquire tokenized fractions of an artwork before it becomes tradable on DLVEX and grows in value.

Crowdsell your art

  • Instead of selling their art to small-scale clientele of billionaires through auction houses (that can take commissions up to 30%) art owners will be able to crowdsell pieces of their collection to anyone on earth with a computer and a few Louvois Franc (LVF) allowing the crowd to outcompete the few and helping the seller get the most money for his artwork.

 

  • Sellers can define their ACO goal, duration and reserve price : once the artwork has been submitted through our system,¬†local third-party partners will assess and estimate its authenticity, provenance and value.

 

  • We will then evaluate the chances of success of the ACO project and help the seller define the details and conditions of the smart-contract that will regulate the new life of the artwork as well as the voting interactions between its new owners .

 

Artists, create your own cryptocurrencies

  • Artists will have the possibility to raise funds from a worldwide range of investors and patrons to fund and boost their careers by crowdselling smart-contract shares on their future sales in the form of a tradable cryptocurrency.

 

  • Artists will be able to define their ACO goal, duration as well as their reserve price and how they expect to spend the amout raised to boost their career.E.g., Vingogh wants to raise $350,000 to buy media placement and rent an prestigious exhibition space in Manhattan in exchange for a 25% commission on his future sales made through DeLouvois.com the Art and Luxury Marketplace over the next 4 years.

 

  • Once the ACO project has been approved by our team and community, we will help artists define the conditions of the smart-contract that will regulate the commission on sales to be redistributed to the holders of the smart-contract shares as well as the voting interactions between them and their project

Participate in the life of famous artworks

  • Once the ACO (crowdsale) period is over, the artwork is transformed into shares (tokens) and becomes tradable on DLVEX.
    Anyone with an internet connection and a few Louvois Franc (LVF) will be able to buy and sell fractions of artworks whose price will fluctuate based on simple supply and demand.

 

  • Using a powerful blockchain-voting technology, token-holders will be able to exercise their voting rights to participate in the life of the artwork under set terms and conditions as defined by the smart-contract before the ACO.

    Buyout offers and rental proposals for the artwork will also be submitted to the token holders.
