CryptoSolitaire is Now Ownly!

Stolen digital art is a common problem nowadays for artists. Creative thieves or a term we coined as ‘creathieves’ seem to take advantage of the lack of safe space online for artists. Ownly, formerly , aims to provide a solution to the problem.

Why We’re Pivoting

“We choose to pivot from the combination of games and art in CryptoSolitaire into focusing only on art in Ownly. We believe we can deal with the issue of counterfeit digital art by turning any artwork into cryptoart.” — Ownly Co-Founder

“We will be using the process called tokenization in blockchain technology. Each digital artwork will be turned into a . It will have a unique hash that will serve as its digital signature. In blockchain technology, no signature is ever the same. When you tokenize an artwork, you’re assured that it will be one of a kind.”

“The best thing is when you turn an artwork into an NFT, interested buyers and collectors can be sure that it’s authentic. Since the blockchain technology is a decentralized system which means it’s a public ledger, it is impossible to change the artwork’s signature or cheat.”

This is what Ownly is all about. Ownly means you own the only digital copy. It will be an online gallery full of single-edition cryptoart from our featured local artists.

We want to collaborate with promising artists and bring their valuable artworks to blockchain technology. We believe that they have so much to offer and we are delighted to share their masterpieces with the world.

The Future with Ownly

Ownly will be a home for these artworks. It will be a high-tech revival of our founder’s first project — the which serves as a shelter for our homegrown creatives in the region.
