Crypto Puzzles by Zden


1BiTCoiN WHiTe PaPeR
I created this generative artwork by processing the content of Bitcoin White Paper by Satoshi Nakamoto.
It's at the same time a crypto puzzle that is not visible at first glance.

Artwork is also notarized on the Bitcoin blockchain by a transaction of 777 Satoshis from the puzzle's address. The SHA-256 fingerprint from this image creates the private key of the notarization wallet.

The first buyer of this NFT will receive a high-quality, hand-signed, physical print of size 28 x 28 inches (71.12 x 71.12 centimeters).
