"210 000" is the second artwork from the
"Halving blocks" series dedicated
to the block where the first Bitcoin halving
in history happened.
The composition is again a hexagon, representing a two-dimensional view of a three-dimensional cube with all 457 transactions at its core. A merkle tree is visible in three of the corners, with different information about block 210,000 engraved
above each one.
At the top is engraved the hash of the block,
in the left corner the merkle root and on the
right, the number of the block, the bitcoins
mined in the block, the number of transactions contained in the block, the date the block was
mined as well as the date the artwork was finished along with the name of the artist.
Engraved into the crown of the trees are the digital "leaves," which represent the computer language through which any computer system of ones and
zeros functions. It is through these base units
that the digital photosynthesis takes place
that supports the complex life of any
technology that serves us in our
Two ouroboros snakes are placed under the
roots of the merkle trees. Biting their tail,
they symbolize the endless process happening
in the Bitcoin network, mining block after
block every ~10 min.
There is an NFT counterparty token which is
held by the owner of the physical artwork.
Dimensions of the artwork: 70/80/3 cm
