ARTISTS
DESERVE
MORE

...than just passion projects.

They deserve to create on their own terms, unadulterated by the influence of a paycheck.

Until today, artists' digital works carry no defensible value, as anyone can replicate and redistribute their files.

The R.A.R.E. Network changes everything.  We introduce permanence, scarcity, and proof-of-ownership to the digital art world.

Artists Deserve R.A.R.E.

How the R.A.R.E. Network Works

Selling R.A.R.E. content is a new way for artists to monetize. If artists make more money, the world will make more art.

This is our mission.
STEP 1
The Artist Creates Their Digital art File
STEP 2
The artist uploads
their file to a R.A.R.E. Auctioneer

Then decides how many numbered copies should exist

Titles the piece and uploads any description or attributes at their choosing

The file is uploaded to the IPFS, ownership tokens are minted, and the artist can begin to sell

STEP 3
Collectors bid on the art, or buy it outright

Collectors use Ethereum or RARE Token to buy art at a fixed price or in auction

Ethereum smart contracts handle all auctions and fixed-price purchases, which allow trustless transfers of RARE assets

Collectors store RARE assets in their Ethereum wallets and can trade at any time

STEP 4
Curators maintain The RARE Registry and private galleries

The R.A.R.E Registry pays the community to weed out frauds and spam

Galleries let private curators show off their taste and style. Artists can pay gallerists for promotion.

The ability to sell limited edition art worldwide and develop relationships with collectors through R.A.R.E's platform is a game-changer for artists of all kinds.

"I can't believe this hasn't been done before...it just makes so much sense – especially for graphic designers"
Bryan Woodland

I'm excited about R.A.R.E because it seems like an elastic way to present art...it seems like the limits are wide and could be really exciting. You guys are building something cool to play around for artists – that's for sure.

I believe that RARE network is the first to fully address this new market of the future, and if it does well, many artists and companies will use it.

“I’m really excited to see what developments R.A.R.E. Art Labs brings to the crypto-art and crypto-music scene.”
DJ J Scrilla

For me, RARE is a great chance to be at the head of the race in the new market of digital-scarcity. I’m excited to see how this helps the digital art market evolve through the future.

The future economy could be so incredibly vibrant if artists have new ways to show, sell, and trade across the world

Everything is digital, you talk about having a cold and your phone starts popping up with ads for Theraflu. If artist can monetize their digital assets rather then have them used across the internet wit wild abandon, I'm all for it.

I feel like you guys are looking out for the artist. I think that  just being able to have a platform where you can protect your art, but also monetize off it at the same time, is a thing that artists need. We need more platforms like this. We need more avenues. And we also need to be educated more on ways to protect our creations.

"Working with R.A.R.E. is compelling to me for the opportunities it presents for exposure and distribution as well as being part of a community. The most direct benefit is, of course, access to the vast and open marketplace not subject to the artificial limitations imposed by the art world establishment and the ability for the work to be authenticated, editioned, and sold via a transparent and fair contract. Secondly, being part of a new breed of artists, cross-pollinated with technologists, presents abundant opportunities for collaboration and co-creation.

As an artist who primarily creates digitally, it’s often a huge time suck taking the next step and turning digital work into physical prints that can be marketed. R.A.R.E. gives me the potential to keep my work digital, dodge production costs, and spend time on what matters most: creating quality work to share with those who want to own something one of a kind.

I think this (R.A.R.E.) could really help a lot of our artists.

“It’s shifting culture, like when Jay-Z says you have to go to Tidal to get his album and you’re like “well, damn, I guess I’m getting Tidal.” I think it has the potential to create an energy that helps people shift the culture, where you’re using art, which we use every day to shift culture, but changing the value on it. Now, it’ll be worth this much or that much, which is way more than we see in a regular dollar.”
Michael Millions

RARE is an opportunity to put artists on the map & to collect them all. It’s kinda like Pokémon but better
Marshall Roach

(R.A.R.E.) certainly sounds interesting and I'm very open to learning more
Mike Broth
Richmond-based artist, muralist and writer
Looking at social media, I’m really not a huge fan, but 95% of the money I make is coming from people that see my stuff on there. A lot of this sh*t is on the internet and, international, so having a place where that could be specifically art-related makes sense.

When the innovation of
crypto-currency meets the vehicles used to create your own empire, R.A.R.E gives complete freedom as a creator

R.A.R.E. Press

If attending the first ever live Rare Pepe auction taught me anything, it’s that if people are willing to spend digital assets worth nearly $40,000 on these things, then the traditional art world is going to have to ask itself Parker’s tough questions whether it wants to or not.
The company (R.A.R.E.) plans to tokenize digital artworks, thereby giving them a home on the blockchain, and to advise artists on how — and for how much — to sell their work.
If you can create a market for kittens, you can do it for digital art
The attendees of Rare AF believed they were witnessing history. They were certain that blockchain technology would reshape the future of digital art for years to come.
RARE, COLLECTIBLE DIGITAL ART IS HERE TO STAY
