This artwork was created by Matt Habel to commemorate the event in bitcoin history which came to be known as "The Slaying of the Bearwhale." On October 6, 2014, an unnamed investor, the so-called “bitcoin bearwhale”, dumped approximately 30,000 bitcoins onto the open market. Over the course of six hours, the price of BTC stalled at $300 until all of the coins were sold off and the bearwhale was vanquished.
This Special Edition backlit film print was made for the six year anniversary of said event.
This is an authentic print of his original digital artwork. It comes mounted in a black aluminum LED light box frame with a dimmer control.
Materials: Laser-exposed and chemically developed on duratrans backlit film. Aluminum Frame. LED backlighting.
Dimensions: 16 x 20 inches
Weight: 9 lbs

HOW IT WORKS
1. Deposit 5% of your bid as collateral and just top it off for additional bids
-->Bid deposits capped at 2M sats in case you want to ape in while staying within your Lightning comfort zone ;)
2. The winning bidder has 24 hours to pay their bid. If they don't, they lose their collateral and the next highest bidder has a chance to pay their high bid
3. Once the item is paid for, deposits are refunded to the remaining participants
HOT ZONE RULES
-Bids placed in the final 15 minutes of the auction reset the countdown to 15 minutes
-Auction can't end with a pending bid
-Onchain bid deposits no longer accepted
A shipping deposit of $200 is added to the winning bidder's final balance. Once the item ships, the difference is returned to them along with the shipping receipt.
Buyer is responsible for import taxes.
