The Art of Money

Through my Minnaar Money Art Collection I challenge the very concepts of art, money and value as I take my various artworks and turn them into money – Minnaar money (Minnaars for short). Minnaars can be spent like money and exchanged 1 to 1 for any of my other works available now or in the future. 1 Minnaar is always worth 1 Minnaar. They are “created to be traded” and each work contains a clue that can lead to a Hidden Treasure. The more you trade, the more clues you can pick up.

There are currently less than 1,000 Minnaars in circulation with new works created weekly. Minnaars come in two versions: a physical work and an associated NFT. They are initially sold as a set but each is considered an independent work of art and can be collected and traded independently.

The Story of Minnaar Money

For most of her life my grandmother hid dollars around her home as emergency savings. As she neared retirement I can only imagine the financial strain, confusion and disappointment she must have felt when she realized that her savings had lost over 90% of their purchasing power during this same time period.

Through the study of economics we learn that the essential characteristics of a good “store of value” are scarcity, fungibility, durability and utility.

As an artist I add “fun” to this list of characteristics as I create this type of value through my Minnaar Money Art Collection. Why not own a piece of art that you can enjoy while still having the ability to exchange it or sell it at any time? I invite you to join me in this fun and creative journey by collecting and trading Minnaars.

Collector Friendly

Minnaars are posted and indexed on this site as they are released. Our Minnaar Collectors Telegram Group provides a convenient venue for discussing, collecting and trading.

Dollar Decay

Due its nature, a dollar tomorrow is worth less than a dollar today and each day it takes at least one more dollar to buy a Minnaar work. Not to worry, you can purchase Minnaar Money Redemption Tokens to lock-in today’s price and you can redeem them any at time in the future as I release new works. Take a look at the following chart to watch the decaying purchasing power of the dollar in relation to Minnaars:

The Minnaar Treasure

The private key to the bitcoin address below was created with 24 words. Each Minnaar contains one of these words. Collect all 24 words, arrange them in the right combination and you can take the bitcoin residing at the address.

When the treasure is captured, the same words will be used to generate a new private key and the hunt will start all over again.

This treasure is 100% community funded by Collectors, Traders and Treasure Hunters like yourself who regularly add to the balance by sending bitcoin to it.  Click on the address to view the current balance and then join in on the hunt:
