“This artwork was created when Bitcoin first hit 40k USD, capturing a moment in time that was significant to both the online and offline worlds. It was an event that proved there was a place for cryptocurrency and further brought Bitcoin into the mainstream,” explains the artist, Szabotage. “I’m interested in this movement and growth of the metaverse and want to explore this ‘boom’ in this artwork by utilising the image of Bitcoin, showing just how widely known it has become.”
The artwork is part of a larger collection titled ‘Crypto Crackers’ where Szabotage further explores cryptocurrencies’ influences, particularly that of Bitcoin.
