TL;DR:

Every great movement has been reflected in the work of artists.  I'm publishing Cryptoart as a medium for artists to contribute to the cryptocurrency movement.  Cryptoart also functions as a paper wallet by embedding a public and private key to store BTC.

Quick links:

Website:  www.cryptoart.com

Come by my booth at the Texas Bitcoin Conference!

About:

Cryptocurrency is valuable.  Cryptoart safely stores your coins in a physical, expressive, and collectible form by combining them with fine art.  Cryptoart can be loaded, unloaded, and reloaded with currency, collected or traded in person, stored or framed for your enjoyment. We strive to publish rich, unforgettable imagery that comments on the crypto culture and the cryptocurrency movement.  

IAmA:

I've been an art dealer/retailer for 15+ years and always wanted to move to the publishing side.  I'm also a fan of Bitcoin, and this seems like a fun venture to combine both interests.

Cryptoart Details:

Each limited edition print is embedded with a QR code.  This is your public bitcoin address.  You can use it to check your balance or send money to your cryptoart. On the back, is a security sticker that conceals your private key.  Taking a cue from bitcoin, it was important for me to make cryptoart trustless.  If you don't trust the person you bought your Cryptoart from, you can change out the Bitcoin address and private key without damaging the art piece.
  
Cryptoart comes it several sizes, the smallest size is called a crypto certificate.  All editions are expertly created with museum quality archival inks on a 100% cellulose Hahnemühle German paper.   I intend all future editions to follow the same form factor to aid in authentication.
  
The Artists:

Finding artists is by far the biggest challenge.
My first artist is Alexander Fedesov; a Ukrainian artists that has mastered digital hyper realism and will hypnotize you with his illustrative detail.  His work is loaded with symbolism and will keep your eye busy. More artists will follow from various genres.

Looking for Resellers:

If you have a brick-and-morter place and want to retail Cryptoart, please contact me.  Cryptoart comes unloaded, so I'm also looking for trustworthy folks to load it. You should abide by all AML and KYC requirements of your jurisdiction.

This isn't the first time The World has seen Cryptoart.  I setup a booth at the Texas Bitcoin Conference a few weeks ago...

http://cryptoart.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/IMG_3254-300x200.jpg

I wanted to gauge real-time reactions to the concept of fine art paper wallets.  BTW-- Hashfast next to me had a box mining 2 TH!

The verdict isn't out yet, but one of the Cryptowomen in the booth behind me was kind enough to pose for a quick pic...

So there it is-- A Ferrari, a Lamborghini, Cryptoart, Cryptowomen, the Texas Bitcoin Conference, on the Circuit of The Americas race track.  Not a bad start.

Time to start keeping this thread current with our announcements.

New Cryptoart edition released:  The Halving II (Moon or Bomb?)...

We've added a new Cryptoart edition! 
http://cryptoart.com/product/bitcoin-the-halving-ii-moon-or-bomb/


This is the sister edition to the “The Halving” created by artist Christina Hess in celebration of the Bitcoin Halving.  This piece represents the time period from the 2016 halving to the next halving in 2020 and pays tribute to BTC price speculation.  Some suggest the reduction in Bitcoin inflation will create more scarcity and increase the price.  Others suggest a reduction in block rewards will reduce miner participation and make the network less secure.  The discussion seems ably illustrated as war-time propaganda.

The central element of this art piece is a rendition of the tally stick — an ancient device used to record debts between two parties.  A stick was marked to signify the debt, then broken and given to each party.  The larger half was given to the creditor and the short end given to the debtor.  Similar to the private-key to public-key relationship of cryptography, only one pair could be combined to verify the debt.  In this regard, tally sticks represent sound money by not contributing to fractional reserve banking.

Hmmm. Haven't posted here in quite some time. Can't seem to get images to work.  Posting links between the IMG tag just gives a link.
