Parisian “Gilet Jaunes” Bitcoin Mural

At the end of 2018, I was approached by artist ‘PBoy‘ about creating a Bitcoin puzzle inside a mural painting in Paris.  As I was already a fan of his work, I was pleased to provide the seed funding of $1000 as the reward for anyone who was able to decipher the clues and access the BTC stored at the address disclosed publicly.

I should make it clear – I had no input beyond providing the initial prize funds.  All credit for this wonderful and unique piece of art that engaged a broad audience goes to PBoy and his collaborators.

Work started on 2nd January 2019:


In the early hours of the 7th January, the finished piece was revealed to the world:


It didn’t take long for word to spread about this amazing piece of artwork, with its hidden treasure within!

The painting achieved media coverage not just in France, but worldwide … from Germany to Mexico:

The mural also got some mainstream French TV coverage:


Needless to say I am very pleased with the attention both the painting and Bitcoin has received as a result of PBoy’s hard work and priceless creativity.

For those curious about the solution:

We may surprise everyone with another puzzle in the coming months … stay tuned!
