This will enable them to provide their audiences and fans with unique content. Thus, creating a direct bridge between artists and the people that follow their work.
In addition, creators have a stable way of monetizing their art directly on the DeviantArt platform. The company has been making attempts to use blockchain technology and Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs) to help artists around the world to protect their work and, at the same time, give millions access to unique content.
With the help of Wix, one of the world’s top website builders, and Bitcoin service provider BitPay, DeviantArt took further steps to expand its offers. The platform also launched an online art protection service to provide content creators, designers, and artists with the tools needed to display their art to the world.
Their newest subscription service is an exclusive feature to Core Members that will allow content creators and artists to have a steady income and a platform to expand their audience. In addition, DeviantArt welcomes all types of creators, from writers, painters, and photographers.
They will be able to create subscription tiers and offer fans access to exclusive content and the capacity to take them behind the scenes into their creative process. Thus, the subscription service provides users with access to an intimate experience with the artist or creator.
