About the company
The company’s founder was a contemporary artist who wanted to use technology to resolve the lack of infrastructure in the field of art. Since times are changing and the way the society approaches everything is evolving, the people behind this company wanted to find a way to keep art alive and support artists through innovative tech. The company is committed to introducing blockchain technologies and creating an innovative platform to buy and sell art, while protecting the earning capabilities of passionate artists.
The company, located in the heart of Tokyo, is very proud of their unique platform’s main feature: traceability. Art is very important in our society. The ability to create and appreciate art is what makes us human.

To make everything a reality, he obtained patents in Japan and the U.S. and started the company while he was in graduate school studying informatics. With the help of blockchain technology and the utilization of the company’s platform, whenever an artist’s art gets resold, he/she will always get a portion of profit out of it.
The company's future plan is to expand their platform with blockchain network overseas.
