ArtByte (formerly AppleByte) is a person to person digital currency. With artbytes, art lovers can now support their favorite artists directly.

When a fan sees an artist’s work they appreciate, instead of just liking or faving them, fans can give them ArtBytes (which can then be converted to cash, used at restaurants, concerts, movies, theaters, etc). By J. Michael Cabaniss, Peter Bushnell, Oliver Simon and Mikko Ohtamaa.
