The Bitcoin is supposed to be located somewhere within the mural. The murals exact location has remained a secret, but Boyart has provided some clues to its location in his blog.
“…it’s up to you to find the wall and the solution to the puzzle,” Boyart writes.
Boyart is not alone when it comes to the promotion of cryptocurrency through artwork. The promotion of cryptocurrency through artwork is becoming more and more popular as artists have found unique and secure ways to sell their artwork through crypto and its surrounding applications.
Stay tuned to find out who finds the Bitcoin loot! (At time of writing the wallet is valued at just a near $1,200)
