Investing in fine art has long been a staple of long-term wealth accumulation for the rich and powerful. A steadily appreciating asset class, cut off from the everyday markets, art collecting was never within reach of the everyday investor. The playing field has been changing in recent years, with the rise of new fractionalized investing instruments. With just a small sum, basic knowledge and a modicum of skill, an investor can now become a proud owner of some of the world’s most notable and desirable world-class art.
What is MotelNFT?:
MotelNFT seeks to take fractionalized investing to the next level by introducing fractional NFT ownership of real-world art pieces. MotelNFT brings fine art investing to all investors, democratizing this once elite asset class. By purchasing a Fractionalized NFT (F-NFT) through MotelNFT, you become an owner and art investor. With your F-NFT, you are entitled to display the digital image, which will look identical to the original art, as a proud owner. Own just one F-NFT or seek to hold the entire lot, at which point the physical art would become yours. Beyond the joy of ownership, each F-NFT entitles the owner to a vote in determining the reserve price if the art is ever sent to auction.
How does it work?:
Before investors can access each work of art as an F-NFT, the art must be “converted” into an NFT, a non-fungible digital asset, which is staked (held in trust) in a “vault”. From that vault, the F-NFTs are created, equally dividing the ownership of the vault contents. These F-NFTs are then sold to investors without the common middlemen of the artworld, the art dealer and the broker. No commissions to pay or interference from third parties. You are investing directly in the art with your F-NFT purchase.
As each work becomes available, you, the investor, will have the opportunity to purchase an F-NFT through either Opensea.io or directly on the MotelNFT.art website. A free crypto wallet, such as MetaMask will be required, installed on either your mobile device or your browser. Your F-NFT serves as your proof of ownership as well as your access pass to the MotelNFT community at large. “Rub elbows” with other savvy art investors and discuss the melding of art and technology on Discord, Twitter and other social media platforms. You will now be an art collector, with some of the best art in the world in your portfolio.
Fine art ownership for the masses:
From smallest investor to the avid art collector, whether it is Andy Warhol, Banksy, Jean-Michel Basquiat or any of the artists that MotelNFT brings into the F-NFT market, you will have the chance to invest in timeless works and be a part of not only a once out-of-reach investment class but also the Web3 movement to democratize asset investing for everyone. Buy, trade, hold or sell, MotelNFT brings some of the world’s most sought after and exclusive world-class art to you, one piece at a time.
