Untapped art can be such a difficult blog to write. I mean, the way the internet works, it’s almost as if nothing is ‘untapped’.
So, I decided to combine two things we love here at Her Blaze; art and cryptocurrency. What exactly is art combined with cryptocurrency?
Is that even a thing? I am here to tell you that crypto art is real and we love it!
I found a really interesting website called Crypto Art out of Austin, Texas.
According to their website, “Cryptoart is Bitcoin in the physical form of art. It is a literal combination of art, technology, and money. Each piece is a hand-assembled limited edition giclee print with the unique ability to store digital currency.”
As I was looking at their site, I was thinking to myself, ‘what’s the point?’ I mean, cryptocurrency is digital. I shouldn’t need a place to store it.
I quickly learned that couldn’t be further from the truth.
According to Crypto Art, “The Bitcoin protocol is extremely secure, but if your computer (or phone) gets hacked, your bitcoin can be stolen. For this reason, it’s safest to store unused bitcoin offline. This process is called ‘cold storage’. Cryptoart merges bitcoin cold storage with art, thus giving you a safe way to secure and visually enjoy bitcoin. The result is a new form of art– one that not only derives value from aesthetics and scarcity, but from the value it literally holds.”
Check out the art below. It is just one example of what is available on their site.
Her Blaze was gifted their first official NFT from the one and only Javier Romero! We are so excited to be NFT Collectors of Art!
Javier is a crypto artist that has been able to thrive on OpenSea. OpenSea is a digital marketplace that allows artists to share and sell their art via crypto!
This market is a open book where you can see exactly what has been sold and how much it was sold for. You can also keep track of collectors and donators!
There are so many artists on this site and we can’t wait to get to know them and invest in their art!
If you’d like to learn more, donate or purchase art – DON’T HESITATE TO REACH OUT! We are here to share and spread as much love for Art as we can!
As the Bitcoin price continues to grow, this is such an exciting time for those of us at Her Blaze! This digital asset is something we will continue to utilize in a way that can help us showcase and support all the amazing artists who come our way.
Cryptocurrency, like renewable energy and solar power, is something we are passionate about. And the fact that we can combine it with art is the perfect match-up.
Being a part of the crypto culture and community is the newest, most promising venture for the Her Blaze community. We know you’re just as excited as we are.
So, if you come across some crypto art that we need to see, please send it our way!
Cryptocurrency is changing the economy. It is changing the way we invest.
Change can be scary.
But as President Obama said, “change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
