Pat Lichty:

Digital art is finally getting accepted in the, what I’d say, the high art ecosphere, between museums and galleries and collectors and that sort of thing and you know, there’s been different names for this stuff like, you know, cyberart – that’s kind of where we started into this, then new media, then post internet art, then now we’re kind of getting into digital art, which is, you know, there’s a lot of stuff with the guarantee of it, you know, and this has been the big thing with digital art, you know, how can we guarantee this as something that you can collect or sell and that has to do with verifying it on the blockchain.
