Ascribe is a wonderful example of how to use the blockchain. It is a project that started in 2014 and is now a rapidly expanding startup in Berlin. Ascribe is the outcome of a vision to help to change the art world, to make it not only possible but also easy to manage and collect digital art by leveraging the blockchain technology. Ascribe built functionality for artists and creators to lock in authorship, create authentic limited digital editions, securely share and easily transfer the rights of their work.
Over 5,000 creators have declared 10,000 digital works and 40,000 unique editions. Furthermore, a dozen marketplaces and platforms have signed-on to work with ascribe via their API
