I’m not that familiar with how digital currencies work so I’ll try my best to explain Artbyte. I wanted to blog about this because I thought it would be a good way for artists in virtual worlds to earn some money.
Artbyte is a digital currency which has supported over 25,000 artists around the world since 2014. They have been supporting all types of artists: painters, musicians, sculptors, actors, dancers, writers, film makers, photographers, and now they even have a section for artists working in virtual worlds. You can create an account on their forum and share your work there and then I believe people can send you currency tips in Artbyte. Recently someone sent me a tip of 100 Artbyte.
Any artist with a Twitter or Reddit account can receive Artbyte tips, like I did.
ArtByte is a digital currency, like Bitcoin. There are multiple exchanges around the world that trade digital currencies. ArtByte is listed on four of them. In Europe, ArtByte can be traded directly for euros. In the rest of the world, ArtByte is traded for Bitcoin, which can be traded for dollars or the currency of dozens of countries. You can check Artbyte’s trading exchanges on coin poker.
If you have more information about Artbyte to share, please do so in the comments as I would love to learn more about it. Hope you guys find it interesting and useful.
I’m going to try and share some of my work on the Artbyte forum and see what happens. I’ve also shared a filtered image of this photo on my instagram:
Also, just a reminder to enter my L$5000 Rezday Giveaway. I’ll be announcing the winner on May 15th.
