MILL VALLEY, Calif., March 24, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — ArteQuesta, a fine art investment company, today announced the acceptance of Bitcoin as a method of payment for the purchase of artworks. Without excluding the typical form of monetary exchange, ArteQuesta is the first and only organization in the art investment world to accept Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is a popular peer-to-peer online payment that enables users to transact directly without the reliance on banks, and has become the first decentralized digital currency. Bitcoin hosts every transaction, tracking the provenance and the “true” market value of artwork from buyer to buyer, based on actual numbers and not based on appraised values. In addition, this payment option now gives millions of people access to easily invest in art, at any level, without any political and social implications or unnecessary fees.

Rayah Levy, Art Market Expert of ArteQuesta, commented “We are excited to offer this new form of payment, reassuring our clients that they have the opportunity to invest in art, not in a controlled and manipulated fashion, but in a clear, traceable way via the blockchain Bitcoin presents.”
