The main new feature of CryptoArt on the blockchain is, that it is scarce, unique and as a collectible valuable.

Jason Bailey describes it very well on his ArtNome Blog:

“A big problem with producing and selling digital art is how easily it can be duplicated and pirated. Once something is copied and replicated for free, the value drops and the prospect of a market disappears. For things to be of value they need to have scarcity. Blockchain helps solve this for digital artists by introducing the idea of “digital scarcity”:  issuing a limited number of copies and tying them back to unique blocks proving ownership.” Please read the full post “The Blockchain Art Market Is Here” here
