A new milestone in the crypto space has been achieved as Idoneus has acquired an original artwork made by world-famous artist Pablo Picasso using their native digital currency, the IDON token, as method of payment. “This milestone is made even more special since IDON Tokens have not yet entered public exchange when the purchase was made,” said Tim O’Leary, Vice President, Portfolio Development for Idoneus.
“It is my great pleasure to announce that Idoneus has purchased a piece of original artwork by Pablo Picasso, using IDON Tokens as method of payment,” added Tim O’Leary. The piece in question, Danse du ventre devant homme impassible, was completed by Pablo Picasso in 1971, during Picasso’s final works. This stage of his life was a mixture of styles, his means of expression in constant flux until the end of his life.
Idoenus’ Vice President went on saying that: “This is an incredible feat for any established cryptocurrency company to acquire fine art by one of the world’s most prominent artists with their own native token. This milestone is made even more special since IDON Tokens have not yet entered public exchange. The seller has such a strong belief in the vision and value of Idoneus in building the new economy for luxury assets, that the seller found more value in owning IDON vs owning a piece of art by an iconic artist. These are exciting times for Idoneus as we entered public exchange on June 1, 2020 on P2PB2B Crypto Exchange.”
Idoneus, which is building the New Economy for Luxury Assets, was created by leading industry professionals representing over a century of experience. Their principals have directly facilitated asset exchange and acquisition transactions on five continents. As the company stated, they are not creating a new business model with Idoneus; they are transitioning an entire global industry which has been established decades ago to the blockchain, as technology advancements now allow asset transactions of all kinds (fiat, tokens and physical assets) to be facilitated much more swiftly, transparently and securely. That is their vision behind the goal towards leading the luxury asset trading space with the strategic addition of a digital currency being added to the proven model of barter, which creates significant opportunity for early adopters of the IDON Token to benefit as the ecosystem grows.
The transaction was facilitated by members of the Idoneus Portfolio Development Team and Marlissa Gardner. Marlissa is a renowned entrepreneur in the world of fine art and is the Founder and CEO of Emillions Art, LLC (showroom) in Naples, Florida, U.S.A. She worked with and on the behalf of one of her private clients who desired to sell the artwork for IDON Tokens.
“I was introduced to the Idoneus business model through a mutual acquaintance. I recognized right away the wide-ranging applications to assist various groups within the world of fine art. Idoneus has reinvented the market for luxury assets and art is a fundamental part of the economic foundation. Buyers, sellers, collectors and high value investors are sure to benefit from this exciting new platform. All clients will have the ability to sell their artwork for an asset which, unlike their significant artwork, is divisible to the holder or their heirs, has growing utility through its expanding economy, and can be used as a safe and secure method of payment for luxury assets, goods and services. This was a simple, seamless and streamlined transaction that was handled in an extremely professional manner by the Idoneus Executive Team. Both my client and I were very satisfied with the entire process. I look forward to helping many more holders of fine art and the artists themselves complete transactions for IDON.” Says Marlissa.
As a testament to the transaction being completed in a manner which benefited the owner of the Picasso artwork and her understanding that many more individuals within the artworld can benefit from the Idoneus model, Marlissa has agreed to join the Idoneus team as Senior Advisor, Fine Art. Marlissa brings a level of depth and knowledge of fine art that without a question will help in expanding the entire Idoneus Economy, thereby adding value to every holder of IDON in the process.
