English craftsman Damien Hirst and printer HENI Leviathan reported on Thursday the arrival of a printout of eight Hirst canvases, which will be accessible for buy with digital currencies Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH).
- “For the first time, both HENI Leviathan and the artist Damien Hirst will be accepting Cryptocurrency for payment of editions, payments can be made by either Bitcoin or ether, as well as by credit or debit card.”
Printouts will go marked down beginning today through March 3. Each print costs $ 3,000 (or 0.058 BTC/1.8 ETH, at current rates) and each duplicate will have endorsed by Hirst.
- “It’s hard for any of us to trust anything in this life but somehow we manage it and we even find love and I love art and I love the crypto world and I am happy and proud to put my belief into Bitcoin and ether and accept them for this drop.”
Hirst and HENI Leviathan aren’t the lone craftsmanship goliaths plunging their toes into digital forms of money. This month, sales management firm monster Christie’s declared it will sell a NFT from computerized craftsman Beeple, a review composition of his “first 5000 days” of creating one piece of workmanship each day. In the declaration, Christie’s additionally said they would be tolerating offers in ETH for the piece.
