Legend has it that the Bhavacakra, also known as the Wheel of Life, was created by the Buddha himself. It depicts the journey of the human soul through the trappings of the Samsara (cyclic existence of life) until they are able to ascend.

The Bhavacakra is painted on the outside walls of nearly every Tibetan Buddhist temple in Tibet and India, to instruct a non-monastic audience about the Buddhist teachings.

In our interpretation we have applied the teachings of Satoshi and shown how humans are trapped in the fiat samsara and how we may escape, evolve and ascend as a species through the adoption of a bitcoin standard.

The Bhavacakra comes from the Buddhist religion but since Bitcoin is all inclusive and this piece intends to incorporate all its qualities on several different levels, we have included symbols from other religions, cultures and times in history, both classical and modern.

How It Works

HOW IT WORKS

1. Deposit 2% of your bid as collateral and just top it off for additional bids

-->Bid deposits capped at 500K 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

SHIPPING ESTIMATES

(insurance not included)

  • US: $800

A shipping deposit of $1,000 is added to the winning bidder's final balance. Once the item ships, the difference is returned to them along with the shipping receipt.
