In a new series of works, the artist Andy Bauch encrypted the private key to the cryptocurrency wallet, and anyone can receive digital money if he cracks a cipher. In 2016, the artist bought bitcoins, litecoins, and other cryptocurrencies and placed them in several digital wallets. Each wallet is protected with a private key consisting of letters and numbers. The artist developed this key with an algorithm for obtaining a pattern and depicted it with the help of the Lego design tool. The pictures have their price stickers. During the exhibition, Bauch will conduct a live broadcast demonstrating how the value of the content of each wallet in dollars is changing. Even if the painting was bought, any viewer who has cracked the code has the right for extracting money from the wallet.
