WHAT IS SIGN Art?

SIGN Art is a web gallery of Blockchain-Certified Digital Art.

ARTISTS have the option to tokenize their CREATIONS by permanently linking each to a unique Non-Fungible Token or NFT, and sell as a single or in limited editions.

COLLECTORS can use the platform to display their COLLECTIONS of NFTs, transfer or gift to any Waves account, and *sell in the secondary market.

The SIGN Art dApp is built on top of the Waves Protocol which executes instant transactions, with fixed low-cost fees. NFTs are minted on chain at no cost, with every buy request.
