Portraits of a Mind

A global art project to decentralise Bitcoin's codebase into 40 fragments, the work is currently globally decentralised to 15 cities on 4 continents, from San Francisco to Tokyo, including a number of institutional collections to be announced later this year. The exhibition and launch of the project at Christie's New York has been widely credited as one of the major events behind the subsequent rapid growth in the NFT space. It was the first NFT to be sold by a major auction house.
