Following the Art Basel Conversation ‘Blockchain and the Art World’, this panel addresses the general misconceptions of the various purposes of the digital system. What are the social and political implications of decentralized financial networks, is blockchain a reliable source for fundraising, and how are artists using it in their artistic practice? In this talk, specialists in the field will look at the specificities of blockchain and the problems it may, or may not, be able to solve.
