Artfi Genesis Offering Pass (GOP) is the ultimate key to democratize the multi-trillion art market through the Artfi Marketplace. For years, this industry has locked out billions of enthusiasts due to lack of tangible information for succeeding as an investor or as an emerging artist. The high financial cost of acquiring a blue-chip artwork is also another problem that the art company wants to disrupt.

The Artfi Genesis Offering Pass (GOP) will allow the next generation of art investors and collectors to access exclusive artworks on the Artfi marketplace without hindrances such as cost or lack of information. This pass aims to democratize access to blue-chip art by opening up the sector to anyone with a dream of investing or collecting prominent art pieces.

Artfi will distribute upto $10 million worth of free $ARTFI tokens through a strategic airdrop which they will allocate to every holder of the Artfi Genesis Offering Pass and the Genesis Airdrop Pass (GAP). Holding the airdrop pass will qualify you for 1X the amount, while the offering pass will qualify you for 5X. Moreover, the airdrop will also multiply the number of free tokens by the amount of GOPs each holder has minted.

Background of Artfi’s Genesis Offering Pass

Once an aspiring collector attempts to collect beautiful art, they will run into several barriers that prevent them from satisfying their avid taste for pieces, and supporting artists in the way they would have wanted.

The first and most obvious barrier is the high cost of acquiring prominent paintings, sculptures or drawings. If lucky enough, perhaps they won’t encounter a world renowned art that fetches almost a million dollars but will come across a breathtaking piece from an averagely established artist, but that one too will cost several thousands.

Another long-standing barrier you will encounter is the presence of fakes. A study from the Fine Art Expert Institute indicates more than half of the market’s art is misattributed or forged. One of the biggest mistakes to make as an avid art collector or auctioneer is picking up a fake art piece. It is not only an injustice to yourself but also to the original artist who will get nothing from the consignment. As an auctioneer, this mistake could end up ruining your career in a matter of minutes.

There is also another challenge, one of access in a highly privatized industry. The global art industry is to the tune of trillions of dollars yet has become one of the toughest sectors to break in as an investor, emerging artist or novice collector.

It is as if the ultra-wealthy private companies that control the sector guard it with iron gates. Some of the restricting factors include high cost of entry, and little to no knowledge on public domains about navigating the industry.

Against the backdrop of this highly exclusive market, Artfi has emerged with a bold goal of democratizing art. By blending the blockchain and fractional ownership, art investors can gain access to global art patronage for as little as $10 through the Artfi Genesis Offering Pass.
