Bitcoin thrives on connections thanks to its peer-to-peer design. With the continuous application of blockchain technology, the discussion about digital currency is spreading around the world, and many artists are attracted by bitcoin and blockchain.

Artists tend to go to the edge of the industry and keep coming up with new ideas, which is a common perception. They think differently and have different understandings of the value of bitcoin.

Then there are the financial incentives. While many artists are small traders hit hard by traditional transaction fees, bitcoin offers a way to generate sales revenue by differentiating products.Interviews with artists around the world show that they are currently fascinated by the excitement and mystery of bitcoin, but so far, not much of that interest has been translated into use or action.

Three artists, Lindsey Nobel, Poesy Liang and Karen Zahray, all understand bitcoin in the same way. Geographically, these three artists span the globe, from Los Angeles to Malaysia to New York, Stylistically, their works are quite different.

Yet every artist believes in bitcoin’s future. For Nobel, her art and technology played an important role in keeping her in touch with the world. “I see the world as a whole, not separate; Despite the boundaries, humanity as a whole is moving forward.” Nobel’s work explores the many connections a person experiences in life, both inside and outsid. In her work, she creates a series of paintings of neurons, using dots, lines and water droplets to represent the transmission of signals from the nervous system and the body. These connections are how everything works, she commented. The Internet is as dynamic as the human body, and ideas and money are as nervous as the nervous system that spreads from one place to another. In the field of Bitcoin, she is interested in the convenience of transferring this digital currency from one party to another. “Artists have always been interested in trading,” she says. I think it’s a fascinating way to transfer money. It’s faster and more interesting than banks.

As an international currency, bitcoin brings us closer to the global community. Poesy Liang specializes in a variety of subjects, including jewelry, fashion design and writing, but she also notes the role that human relationships played in her initial discovery of bitcoin. There are many entrepreneurs around me. People are talking about bitcoin, and I am also very concerned. Poesy Liang’s works are not limited to a single medium or style. Her cat paintings are cute and colorful, and her exploration of Chinese calligraphy shows her expertise in traditional methods. “Look at everything I do,” she says. “it all adds up to form a whole. Bitcoin could provide artists with an element of privacy that they lack in other areas of their lives.

Karen Zahray is fascinated by the mysteries of bitcoin. The mystery of bitcoin was my first interest in the topic. I think people might find it mysterious, but it’s relevant to the way we live today. It’s all happening online, and when it’s all connected, it’s hard to keep it private, she said. For an artist, the presence of social media is vital to promoting their name and reaching a wider range of audience. Liang has organized her various interests, from jewelry making to her artwork, into a series of Facebook pages. The tools available on Facebook allow her to reach at least 3,000 individuals around the world and build deeper connections with those followers.

While all three have shown interest in bitcoin, only Nobel considers himself an active user of bitcoin. The discussion of digital currency in the art world may have aroused increasing curiosity, but there is still space for growth and improvement in practical use. Comments from people interviewed show that while bitcoin certainly sparks your imagination, it doesn’t always go into your wallet. Karen Zahray has only recently begun a more in-depth study of bitcoin and has not yet used it herself. She did have a wallet and planned to buy some to keep, because she was interested in seeing how its value would change in the future.

If I had any chance, I would definitely use bitcoin. I’m not active yet, but I’d love to be, Poesy Liang commented. Although she is proud that her works can accept bitcoin and become a trendsetter among artists, she also hopes that the art market will have the opportunity to exchange bitcoin. For Nobel, her main goal in using bitcoin is to improve the overall strength of the bitcoin network. She agrees that the word needs to continue to spread to the arts, and she is doing her part to spread the message. “I want to bring bitcoin to more artists, and I’m trying to get more art collectors involved. Time will tell whether the art world will continue to adopt bitcoin, but if so, it may be an interest to entice artists to use it.”
