“Crypto Art’’ Initiative; Art Exhibit In Paris Honors Cryptocurrencies 10th Birthday


Artists from all around the world are celebrating Bitcoin whitepaper 10th year anniversary by hosting an art exhibition in France.

The  Bitcoin Art (r)evolution exhibit  ( started on September 28th and will go on until 8th October in pairs.

Pascal Boyart,  the event organizer and French artist, is enthusiastic to push forward the “Crypto Art’’ initiative through merging the world of art and crypto together by assembling crypto-friendly artists from around the world to converge in Paris.

“[Translated] France, through Paris, is well positioned to become the capital of this new artistic movement between art and crypto. Crypto Art redefines the way an artist can engage his audience,” explained Pascal Boyart and Brian O’Hagan, Coinhouse Marketing Manager. “The start of cryptocurrencies is not just a monetary revolution, it’s also a cultural revolution.”

Artists present at the Paris exhibition were: Andy Bauch, Coin Artist, Josephine Bellini, Nanu Berks, Mark Bern, Yosh, Pascal Boyart, Saint Phalle Yom, Choq, Youl, Ilies Issiakhem.

The exhibition Intends to show the potential of cryptocurrencies by symbolism and practice. Cryptocurrencies will be an integral part of the process of an artistic creation and will allow the acquisition of works in Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies (Litecoin, Monero, Ethereum).

Some bitcoin will be hidden in artworks, this is a highlight for event-goers who will be treasure hunters to discover bitcoins that are hidden in plain sight throughout artworks.

Certificates of authenticity registered in the Bitcoin blockchain will also be issued to buyers, with certificates also being registered on Bitcoin’s blockchain to exhibit how blockchain’s immutable feature can help combat forgery and counterfeit artwork, an issue that has cost the art industry millions of dollars to date.

Lorenzo Sconci, owner of Dubai-based Sconci Art Gallery, and CEO of crypto startup ArtWallet, a blockchain-based ecosystem that registres the derivation data of masterpieces on blockchain, said:

“Without a doubt bitcoin and blockchain has been the biggest revolution over the past 10 years. As revolutions have shaped artistic expression throughout time, there is no doubt that crypto will accomplish the same.

This exhibition is a wonderful initiative – if not for art and its various forms, we would not possess the knowledge we have now of past history. This initiative will be fundamental in the “Crypto Art” movement as it will trace the beginning of how artists lived, interpreted, and synthesized the upcoming blockchain revolution.”

The art industry will without doubt profit from the unification of cryptocurrencies.

In the coming years, we could see the art industry transfer towards greater levels of decentralization as mediators between artists and their audiences wanting to purchase artworks would slowly fade away from the picture, and “Crypto Art” movement is just the beginning.
