Blockchain + Museums — Story of Clashes or Lasting Love?

A tokenized version of La Joconde

Almost one year after my article giving the state of blockchain and museums, I now wonder if we faced a two-world clash or love?

> How a centralised institution can start talking about decentralisation?

Blockchain is too far ahead from Museums.

Blockchain is definitely not on the museums’ menu right now, but its culture could be.

> Community and collaboration

Museums are about people. Blockchain is by people.

> Meaning, trust and new sources of revenues

Blockchain can affect the key business model of museum ticketing.

Will Blockchain be the next trustworthy source to go and appreciate museums? (riddle&code)

So what do you think? Do we approach the love story or we should better forget about it now?
