Even though I did my dream job here at Bitcoin Magazine Since September 2017 I’ve only published one other article. I hope to write more after the conference, but for now I will be using this platform to shamelessly clarify the fact that I am auctioning a painting with Scarce.City on April 20, 2021.
Scarce City is an amazing new project that paved the way for bitcoin art auctions. We teamed up with them for the conference and I can’t wait to show everyone what we have planned. It is truly an honor to have this painting up for auction on a platform that has such an amazing vision for both art and bitcoin.
The following is the description from the auction site:
This is an original painting that was created between March 21, 2020 and April 16, 2021. It was painted as a personal project when I was the Art Director of BTC Inc. (Bitcoin Magazine, Bitcoin 2021 conference). It was hanging in the Nashville headquarters where I was working on it. It will only be auctioned for Bitcoin on April 20, 2021.
It consists mainly of acrylic paint, charcoal and ash with a small piece of shredded paper on hand-stretched canvas.
I planned on leaving it untitled until that little piece of paper fell out of a bag on my table to reveal a simple uppercase message: FOR EVERYONE.
I am proud and happy to have my position here at Bitcoin Magazine. A solid understanding of Bitcoin is a necessity for everyone, and our mission is to further develop this knowledge around the world with the goal of hyperbitcoinization. The need to uphold an individual’s right to privacy (self-sovereignty) is of paramount importance during this revolution and in the long run. The Guy Fawkes mask will always represent this right to self-sovereignty for me.
As we embark on a journey together to end Fiat once and for all, we must not make privacy a privilege, but a natural right for everyone.
I am honored to be auctioning this piece on Scarce City, a pioneer in bitcoin art auctions.
