addendum regarding the Artprice Coin cryptocurrency on the NFT market



DNS, deposit december 2017 (with all corresponding names) illustrates Artprice by Artmarket’s early awareness of this paradigm shift towards NFTs and cryptocurrencies‘. would like to point out that to date, there is not yet a specific cryptocurrency for the group, but that its working groups, after intense reflection, have projected different scenarios where French lawmakers and / or Europeans and / or Americans would begin to build viable legislative frameworks for a crypto-culture that already has a relatively long history and is currently practiced by over a billion people worldwide.

The development and implementation of these frameworks (i.e. legal adjustment to an existing reality) is a process that has been seen repeatedly throughout history, especially in the fields of economics and science during the 20th century.’s overall strategy has long included the creation of a specific cryptocurrency for the art market, as evidenced by the DNS filing date (.net .org, etc. and its corresponding names).

Artprice has been studying for many years the historical and economic realities of the art market, both at its core and at its periphery, and wishes to remind the emerging cryptocurrency community of the real starting point of crypto culture: the mythical Crypto anarchist manifesto of Timothy C. May at the CypherPunk reunion in 1992.

Groupe Serveur, Internet pioneer in Europe since 1987 and reference shareholder of Artprice by Artmarket, has always been sensitive to the CypherPunk community, itself a regular user of PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) since 1991.

For thierry Ehrmann, founder of the Server Group: ‘Computer scientist Philippe Zimmermann is a visionary who very quickly understood the imperative to protect personal data. ‘

The culture of the Server Group is deeply rooted in cryptology and is very close to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. that of Simon Singh delivered The codebook (1999) as a perfect illustration of the history of cryptology experienced by Groupe Serveur.

With favorable legislation in Europe and or United States, the issuance of this cryptocurrency by its American subsidiary Artprice Inc. (SoundView Press since 1992) will pursue a primary objective: to give artists back the central place they should occupy within the art market.

For Thierry Ehrmann: “In historical terms, the closest thing to the impact of TVNs on the art world was the paradigm shift we now call the ‘Renaissance’. Not since then – when that of Johannes Gutenberg the printing press allowed artists to print editions of their work – Has there been such a massive transfer of power into the hands of artists.

The Renaissance enabled artists to generate income and control their production independently in their workshops and factories. Today, with cryptocurrencies being essential to the exponentially growing NFT market, we are experiencing a similar paradigm shift.

thierry Ehrmann, CEO of and founder of Artprice, is a sculptor and visual artist, registered for over 36 years with copyright societies, and creator of the famous Abode of Chaos, a vast CyberPunk metaverse and dystopian of 6,300 works on a m² of land Lyon, France.

Aware of the conditions and responsibilities of today’s artists, thierry Ehrmann communicates daily with other creators from various artistic disciplines and for three decades has organized lively debates with the artist in residence at the Demeure du Chaos. wants to free artists from the cogs of a ruthless system that slows down their emergence. Formerly dependent on orders from ecclesiastical hierarchies, then royal families and aristocrats, artists are now very often faced with insurmountable economic obstacles preventing them from making themselves known and from being fairly remunerated for their work.

An authorized creation of the Artprice Coin cryptocurrency by will ultimately restore the balance between artists and other players in the art market – a balance that is often played against the artist – via a more equitable distribution of wealth between the evenings.

Artists will then be able to see their income and notoriety grow without harming their reputation or their relationships with key players in the art market.

In 2022, entire communities, be they street, land or performance artists – often economically isolated from the art market due to the special nature of their works – will finally have the possibility of interacting directly with their audience thanks to Artprice Coin by exchanges.
