The Value Manifesto is the first crypto-multiple in the history of art. Each crypto-multiple of a limited edition of 250 units is represented by an Ethereum based blockchain token. The Value Manifesto leaves any symbolism behind and concretizes its self-purpose on its own trading value.
The reduction of the present artistic concept to its market value is a provocative statement in the ages of a hypercommercialized, multi-billion dollar art market. In the case of the Value Manifesto, the prices are not created and manipulated by galleries, auction houses, and collector circles, but by the real and unfiltered market request.
The value of the editions are determined by the Value Manifesto’s blockchain based, high-security web platform on which bids are accepted for the acquisition of a single edition. The value (defined in Swiss francs) can be seen in real time on the bidding platform and the Value Manifesto IoT decryptor displays, manufactured by Dalibor Farny.
The Value Manifesto serves as an interdisciplinary art project in the pioneering age of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies. It is financed by a buyer’s premium of 21% of each and every transaction volume.
