Where is the artwork's visual?
On the blockchain
Where is it stored?
The artwork's visual is fully written on the Ethereum blockchain.
Does it guarantee the availability of the artwork's visual?
As long as Ethereum exists, you can be sure that all the data and the history of the data are available.
What if Art Blocks website is offline?
You keep your Artwork
Here are the elements you can retrieve
- artwork's visual
- creator's address
- project's attributes
Good points 👍
- Art Blocks chose to put the artwork's visual, the creator's address and the project's attributes in token, on the blockchain. That ensures you own the data at any time.
- If Art Blocks dies & Ethereum survives, you will be able to retrieve this data.
Bad points 👎
- It would be appreciated if Art Blocks would create documentation (article or video) that explains how users can retrieve the Artwork outside the platform.
