Our Mission

Our goal is to create and curate the world’s most valuable catalog of rare non-fungible assets through partnerships with acclaimed artists, creators, and distinguished personalities from every industry. Using state-of-the-art methods and technologies, we aim to offer tools that simplify the process of tokenizing both digital and physical assets while maintaining security.

NFT for PEACE

In support of the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, Smashchain has teamed up with acclaimed & legendary digital artist Case-K Moonshine, the creator of the world famous character 'Full Metal Rabbit' who has created a special tribute collection exclusively released for SmashChain, whereby 100% of every UKRAINE FLAG & KOSMO NFT sold goes to the FOUNDATION for the SUPPORT of the UNITED NATIONS (FSUN). Only 7 unique versions and a limited number of 1000 each will ever be minted for the support of the Ukraine crisis.

Phase One

SMASH vetted artist management

Phase One will involve the onboarding of new talent, partnerships, and creators, the creation, curation, and release of new NFT assets and collections, and the integration of new complementary and enhancing technologies.

Problem and Challenge

The Sustainability Of NFTs

  • Oversupply of of low-value NFTs.
  • Predictions that 90% NFTs will lose their value in the next few years.

Uniting Creators And Communities

  • NFTs are barely scratching the surface in the way they can add value to holders.
  • More innovation is need in terms of how communities of fans and creators interact.

The Changing Value Of NFTs

  • NFTs cannot be used in standard DeFi lending and borrowing.
  • An NFT’s value is hard to determine at any point, making their usage as DeFi collateral problematic.

Expanding The Usage Of NFTs

  • NFTs are still largely associated with digital assets only.
  • An NFT’s value is hard to determine at any point, making their usage as DeFi collateral problematic.

Legal Protection For NFTs

  • As revolutionary as the idea and technology of NFTs are, they have a major weakness, one that no other platform is currently addressing.
  • Although the holder of an NFT is recognized as the legitimate owner of its associated asset within our industry and ecosystem, this may not be the case from a real-world legal standpoint. Should a dispute arise, it is currently unclear how a court of law would assess the validity of an NFT as proof of ownership.

More Innovation

  • Tokenizing physical and digital assets is simply the tip of the iceberg.
  • To ensure the industry’s continued evolution, the technology needs to be used in more imaginative ways.

Six Distinctive Features & Solutions

Exclusivity

Access to never-before-seen tokenized content from A-list musicians, artists, celebrities, athletes and content creators.

×
  • Even if 90% of all existing NFTs completely lose their value, our focus remains on the 10% that will not.
  • We specialize on the most rare and exclusive content and lready possess a catalog of high-value never-before-seen intellectual property and assets, such as Michael Jackson’s unreleased art and music.

Engagement

SmashChain creators will offer unique interactive perks. Many of our NFTs will grant holders the ability to directly influence their favorite creators’ future content.

×
  • NFT’s can also be employed to grant their holders the ability to directly influence their favorite creators’ future content.
  • Holders will have the right to determine a particular element of that artist’s next piece. This could be the use of a specific medium, theme, color, or any other imaginable aspect.

DeFi

SmashChain will develop new DeFi applications for this industry through a unique model that will allow the usage of NFTs as collateral along with other traditional staking options.

×
  • We have create a unique model/system that does allow for the usage of NFTs as collateral for DeFi loans.
  • Rather than relying on a pre-programmed algorithm to determine the value of any given NFT, we leave that decision to you. As borrower you can ask for any reasonable sum as a loan based on the approximate value of the your collateral NFT. As borrower it is your choice whether you wish to accept or not.

Tokenization

SmashChain will be the first in the world to offer a seamless and trustworthy method of tokenizing valuable physical assets for a safer and more efficient transfer of ownership.

×
  • We leverage some of the world’s most advanced valuation, transfer, custody, and security mechanisms through our exclusive partnership with Brinks – the global leader in route-based secure logistics, cash management services (including vault outsourcing, money processing, and intelligent safe services), and international transportation of valuables.
  • We will become the NFT equivalent of Sotheby’s and Christie’s, where anything offered on our marketplace will be of indisputable legitimacy and quality.

AR Integration

Authenticated physical and digital assets will have the option to leverage our AR technologies to enhance their exclusivity and to add a layer of interactivity or immersion.

×
  • Integrating AR elements into the process of tokenization can enhance the relationship between physical assets and their representative tokens while also adding a layer of value and interactivity for owners.
  • For example, if a physical painting is tokenized, a hash will be created based on the painting’s image and properties. This hash will be added to the metadata of the NFT, after which its owner can use our revolutionary built-in AI image recognition technology to point their camera at the physical painting. Upon recognizing the asset, the app will automatically scan through the owner’s NFTs, searching for the corresponding hash. If a match is detected, a unique holographic element will be displayed in augmented reality.

IP Protection

A first in the industry, SmashChain will bridge the gap between digital proof of ownership and legal, government-backed ownership.

×
  • SmashChain will be the first marketplace to tackle this challenge and bridge the ambitions of NFTs with the legal framework of the real world.
  • We are currently in special talks and negotiations to pioneer a system of legal backing for all of the NFTs we mint and sell within our marketplace. As a SmashChain NFT holder, not only will you be the full and legitimate owner of an asset in the eyes of the blockchain industry but also in the eyes of the law.

The Augmented Reality Integration

SmashChain is integrating advanced AR technologies to enhance the process of minting and interacting with NFTs.
Once a physical item has been fully authenticated and tokenized through our meticulous system, we will also embed AR properties.
For example, if a physical painting is tokenized, a hash will be created based on the painting’s image and properties. This hash will be added to the metadata of the NFT.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Smashchain ?

The Smashchain NFT Marketplace and ecosystem are not just another addition to an industry already saturated with low-value assets. Instead, we are the realization of multiple elements lacking within the field. Above all, we stand out for the rarity and quality of our assets. We've developed relationships with talented and famed creators to prove a wide array of exclusive NFT content. In addition, our highly meticulous vetting and curation process will ensure we maintain a standard of quality that is simply a cut above the rest.
However, quality alone is not our only objective. We also intend to revolutionize the way fans interact with the artists they follow, NFT Defi use-cases, the tokenization of physical items, augmented and virtual reality asset enhancements, and unprecedented legal copyright protections

A blockchain is a publicly accessible online ledger (database), that is not owned by any central authority. Once anything is set in this ledger, it cannot be modified or censored by any single authority. Blockchain technology provides the following benefits to creators:

  • Scarcity: When you upload your creation to the blockchain, you can define the number of editions you want to release. The control and distribution of the editions is automated on the blockchain, so you can tightly manage the scarcity of your creations. No more than the defined number of editions, will ever be released.
  • Authenticity: When you upload your creation to the blockchain, it cannot be changed thereafter. Buyers can trust that the artwork they are purchasing is the original and has not been tampered with, because the publicly accessible data on the blockchain is always available to verify it. Even if other people copy it (as many tend to do online with digital content), the value of your artwork will not degrade, as long as the specific editions can be verified on the blockchain.
  • Ownership: Every transfer/purchase of your creations, is recorded on the blockchain. This means that there is a publicly accessible ownership history for your creations. Provenance is automated and accurate. Having a publicly accessible way to verify ownership will create more value for your creations since it'll be easier to identify infringing use of it. It'll also make it easier for you to support any DMCA takedown requests.

Each of these benefits is inherently available to you, just by using the blockchain. Even if Smashchain ceases to exist, your digital creations will forever remain on the blockchain, and forever be transferable/purchasable. Having said that, interacting with the blockchain is still quite complex. What we are offering is a service that makes blockchain technology simple, and provide its benefits to all creators. Like any technology however, blockchain isn't immune to risks. Please reference our Terms of Service if you'd like to learn more.

  • Proof of ownership and authenticity on the blockchain. We offer simple-to-use tools to help you digitally sign and upload your work onto the blockchain, creating verifiable proof that you are the creator and owner of your work.
  • Custom storefront. We provide tools to help you easily create a customized storefront that you can then share with your audience to sell your work.
  • Distribution. We've partnered with the largest online marketplaces to help you syndicate your work and reach a broader audience to sell your work.

Smashchain is currently free to use for all members. However, all transaction fees associated with blockchain interaction are paid by the end user. On successful sales, Smashchain takes a 15% commission on all purchases in Ether and additionally a credit card transaction fee for purchases done through credit card.

How do I get started?

Smashchain is currently invite-only, however we'd love for you to join us. Please fill out our creator application.

Smashchain is a web-based service that you can use on both desktop and mobile. Customers can optionally use third party wallets (e.g. MetaMask, Coinbase Wallet, Trust Wallet) to purchase digital creations using Ether, but otherwise no additional software is needed to use Smashchain.

You can reach us at [email protected] with any questions or issues. You can also reach us at our Telegram or Discord community.

A digital wallet is software that manages your cryptocurrencies and also allows you to interact with blockchain technologies like Ethereum. Smashchain uses your digital wallet to publish and sell your digital creations using the Ethereum blockchain. All creators on Smashchain are provided with a hosted digital wallet that is securely managed by Smashchain using the highest grade security.

What is a blockchain wallet?

Your blockchain wallet is your ID on the Ethereum blockchain and is used to digitally sign all of your creations on Smashchain. If you need to create a personal wallet, we recommend using MetaMask.

Ether or Ξ is the cyptocurrency used to interact with Ethereum. It's also the primary cryptocurrency used by Smashchain to buy and sell your digital creations.

Ethereum is considered a world computer, operated by many computers across the world. This means that interacting with it incurs a transaction fee called gas to compensate the operators of Ethereum. This gas fee is paid in Ether and can vary in price depending on how quickly you wish to publish your creations and the demand on the blockchain. Generally, you should expect this fee to range from 50 ~ 100 dollars. At this time, gas fees associated with creation, setting prices and sending artworks will need to be paid for by the artist or collector.

Smashchain is run on the Ethereum blockchain, which is considered a world computer, operated by many computers across the world. This means that interacting with it incurs a transaction fee called gas to compensate the operators of Ethereum.
Smashchain has historically paid this gas fee when the blockchain is not congested. However, due to recent high demand on the blockchain, we require gas fees to be paid by the artist or collector.
When you perform any site action that relies on the blockchain (e.g creation, setting prices, sending, etc) you will need to pay the blockchain fee by clicking the "Speed Up" icon beside your pending action. Your transaction will complete within a few minutes.

Does Smashchain support multiple addresses?

At this time we don't support multiple addresses. Having multiple addresses can lead to confusion because all creations are signed using the address of the creator. Please contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions and we can assist you.

When using a personal wallet for creating your artwork, it's important for you to save the 12-word seed phrase associated with your wallet and store it in a secure place. If you ever need to recover your wallet, this is the only way to do it.
If you lose your 12-word seed phrase associated with your wallet, all of your artworks will be lost forever. Here's how to reveal your seed phrase using MetaMask.

Non-fungible tokens

Smashchain uniquely generates a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) for every creation published. This token is what provides proof of ownership and authenticity of your creation. We also use an open standard (ERC-721), which means that any creation is immediately available on 3rd party digital marketplaces, giving your work additional visibility. This is the same standard that is used by the majority of blockchain-based digital assets like CryptoKitties and others.

Smashchain is a platform for creators and has no rights over your creations. We are committed to ensuring that any digital creation published through Smashchain is owned by you (the creator). You can find more details in our terms of service.
