This is an original work and the inspiration behind my recent @BTCvsFED billboard campaign which brought Bitcoin awareness to working class neighborhoods in each of the 12 Federal Reserve Bank cities.

The front of United Nodes of Bitcoin was created in 2015 and proved a popular educational tool while on exhibit at my 2016 solo show The Revolution Will Not Be Centralized. Attendees gravitated toward the reimagined dollar iconography which bridged discussions about our broken financial system and this burgeoning movement.

After completing the back side of United Nodes, I wanted to once again use the artwork as a Bitcoin teaching tool, but go bigger. While formulating a plan, COVID struck resulting in quantitative easing on an unprecedented scale. This focused my efforts and @BTCvsFED was born. The billboards would direct people to a thread detailing how endless money printing affects them personally via inflation and a growing wealth gap.

To fund the billboards, I sold an edition of 21 prints featuring both sides of the United Nodes artwork. This auction is for the original back side of The United Nodes of Bitcoin. It is signed and features numerous references to Bitcoin terminology and culture - some more apparent than others. My augmented reality
collaboration w/ Josie Bellini functions on the piece as well. The winner will also receive surprises that are in the works...both digital and physical.

Thank you for your support!

How It Works


1. Deposit 2% 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


-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

The artist has generously offered to pay for shipping. The buyer is responsible for any import taxes.
