Item description

My latest work commemorates the 10th anniversary of cryptographer Hal Finney's involvement in Bitcoin.

Repurposed credit cards sit atop a used bank safety deposit box. Within the box is a custom, Wi-Fi enabled Casa Node.  Adhered to only function when paired w/ the art, the node allows you to begin “Running bitcoin.”  Embedded within the work is Hal’s signed credit card given to me by his wife Fran.

50% of the auction proceeds will go to the ALS Association Golden West Chapter who supported Hal during his battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

A heartfelt thank you to the Casa Inc. team for collaborating, to Fran, and of course to Hal for his important contributions in a space that means so much to so many of us.
