The Crypto Hall of Fame has switched from the Ethereum to the Bitcoin network, using RSK technology to create smart contracts and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). The first portrait of a digital pioneer which has been minted as a Bitcoin-based NFT is the one of Diego Gutiérrez Zaldívar, who happens to be the founder of RSK.
The previous 11 portraits of Crypto pioneers such as Satoshi Nakamoto, David Chaum, Nick Szabo or Vitalik Buterin have been minted as ERC 721 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain and will stay like that. For the remaining 10 portraits, the Crypto Hall of Fame will use RSK smart contracts based on Bitcoin.
The selection committee has decided to induct Diego Gutiérrez Zaldívar into the Crypto Hall of Fame. He is the co-founder of RSK, Bitcoin Argentina and the Iberoamerican Blockchain Alliance. The induction ceremony took place during Bitcoin 2021 in Miami. Here is an interview with Diego with pictures of the ceremony.

On May 30th, 2021, Tulum (Mexico) will be the centre of the crypto art world. Together with our partner Papaya Playa Project we will host the Crypto Art Fair Tulum with presentations and workshops about Crypto Art and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
We will organise a new exhibition in our online 3D gallery and in various cities around the world – and we want YOU to be a part of it.
The topic is: Crypto Culture. What do we mean by this? All those memes and funny expressions that you only understand if you have been around in the crypto space for a while – things like HODL, Honey Badger, Satoshi, Lambo, To the Moon, you name it.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a book, see the cover below.
