French Artist Pascal Boyart Conceals $1,000 in Bitcoin in Artwork




A graffiti artist from France named Pascal Boyart has concealed $1000 in Bitcoin.

He confirmed his latest endeavor in a blog post.

Boyart embedded a Bitcoin (BTC) wallet QR code in his work last year to earn passive income. He said he chose to go for the “treasure hunt” approach to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Bitcoin genesis block.

The Bitcoin is held somewhere in the wall mural “La liberté guidant le peuple 2019,” that is based on Eugene Delacroix’s famous painting as a symbol of the French Revolution.

The location of the mural remains a secret, and anyone can put together the clues to locate it.

“…it’s up to you to find the wall and the solution to the puzzle,” Boyart said.

The wallet address of the prize is public, with entrepreneur Alistair Milne boosting Bitcoin users to donate to the project to raise the size of the treasure.

Boyart is just one of many figures in the art world who have used their platform to promote cryptocurrency.

The occasion of the genesis block anniversary meanwhile has driven many other gestures, one of which was Trace Mayer’s Proof of Keys event.

Unveiled in December, Mayer asked the entire Bitcoin community to withdraw funds from third party wallets to take back control of their private keys.
