Bitcoin-Themed Art Piece Sells for $130,000 at Christie’s New York

A bitcoin-themed piece of artwork has bought for greater than $130,000 at Christie’s public sale home in New York. 

According to the public sale home, an unknown purchaser bought “Block 21,” a chunk of bitcoin-themed artwork in a sequence depicting the whole lot of Satoshi Nakamoto’s unique code. 

The undertaking, created by artist Ben Gentilli, is one among forty unique pieces spanning the globe which depicts the 12.three million digits of bitcoin’s unique code hand inscribed on large, hollow-centered disks. Block 21 alone comprises 322,048 digits of hexadecimal code, a few of that are inscribed in gold. 




Gentilli referred to as the collective sequence “Portraits of a Mind,” and stated each bit serves as a digital fingerprint in homage to bitcoin’s nameless founder Satoshi Nakamoto. The complete undertaking is alleged to span greater than 50 meters in size, with the round panels scattered in areas around the globe. 

Cryptocurrency supporters applauded the sale of Block 21 as a historic second, marking the primary real-world, non-fungible token (NFT) piece of artwork to be bought on the legendary public sale home.

Bidding for Block 21 started at $22,000 earlier than finally reaching $131,250 on the time of sale.
