Here are some impressions from our crypto art workshop at Espacio Cultural Bitcoin on November 15th, 2022.
Our exhibition “Crypto Art and Crypto Culture” has been inaugurated yesterday with a well visited event in Buenos Aires
Erik Voorhees has been selected as the newest member of the Crypto Hall of Fame, the equivalent of the Rock’n’Roll of Fame for the Crypto World. His portrait painted by Max Cryptohead will be disclosed today at the Latin American Bitcoin Conference in El Salvador.
The Crypto Hall of Fame has switched from the Ethereum to the Bitcoin network, using Rootstock 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 Rootstock.
The selection committee has decided to induct Diego Gutiérrez Zaldívar into the Crypto Hall of Fame. He is the co-founder of Rootstock which brings smart contracts to Bitcoin, as well as the NGO Bitcoin Argentina and the Iberoamerican Blockchain Alliance. The induction ceremony took place during Bitcoin 2021 in Miami.

For this episode of our crypto art show Café Moonmartre we have interviewed the Canadian crypto art collector and entrepreneur Steve Wand. He runs his own gallery BitBuzz in the virtual world Decentraland, as well as the Digitible Building which hosts events and exhibitions.
His new venture Not Fungible offers exclusive artworks from well-known crypto artists. It is also an incubator which helps new artists succeed in the crypto space.
