Bitcoin Treasure

Minnaar No. 00004

In 2021, I created a computer script that randomly generated a bitcoin address from 24 words without revealing the combination or the private key. As a result, no one – not even myself – knows the combination.

I then invited Minnaar collectors to donate bitcoin to the address to see how big it could get. It has now surpassed 1 full bitcoin.

I include all 24 words on the back of each artwork.

All you have to do is guess the right combination to reveal the private key and you can take the bitcoin.

If the treasure is discovered in my lifetime, I will create a new one by randomizing the same 24 words to create a new private key, crowd-fund it with more bitcoin, and the hunt will start anew.
