The Minnaar Treasure

A digital vault, a hidden key,
Twenty-four words, a mystery.
Minnaar’s art, a vibrant guide,
To Bitcoin’s bounty, deep inside.

Lines of code, a playful flight,
Birthed a fortune, lost to sight?
One full Bitcoin, bright and bold,
A challenge whispered, yet untold.

The artist’s touch, a world of hues,
Whispers a secret, it imbues.
Each masterpiece, a whispered clue,
To unlock the wealth, for me and you.

No map exists, no compass guides,
Just art’s embrace, where spirit confides.
The blockchain whispers, cold and clear,
One Bitcoin waits, a prize to cheer.

But even Minnaar, the artist wise,
Values the journey, more than the prize.
For in the chase, and puzzles spun,
A deeper treasure might be won.

So delve into code, and brushstrokes bright,
Unravel the riddle, claim your right.
But in this dance of art and words,
A deeper worth, may yet emerge.

Minnaar No. 1060

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 with each artwork.

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.
