WE BRING DIGITAL TOOLS TO STREET ARTISTS’ SO THEY CAN BETTER LIVE FROM THEIR CRAFT
WHAT WE DO
We are building the first application that allows people to directly support their favorite street artists and explore the Urban Art World, one picture at a time.
We empower street artists by allowing users to make donations with only a picture of the artwork. MARTA (Matching Algorithm Registry Tokenizing Art) makes all of this possible. Once registered, it allows users to simply take a picture of the art and make a donation to the artist. Artists can also decide to redistribute part or all of this money to non-profit organizations.
LONG STORY SHORT
It all started in 2018. In between two boring jobs, Florent was a street art guide in Lisbon. Passionate about new technologies, he heard of Cryptograffiti & P-BOY who were adding QR codes next to their art to receive Bitcoin donations.
The problem he came accross was that QR codes are not scalable nor 100% secure. You can’t ask thousands of artists to add one next to their artwork, knowing that others could just add their own on top. After receiving encouragement from many artists and doing some deep research in artificial intelligence and computer vision, he realized that more was possible, with less .
Today, the prototype is on its way, and the excitement is at its peak.
