NFT STARS Presents the ‘Art of Blockchain’ Collection Including the Legendary Crypto Mona Lisa with Vitalik Buterin’s Autograph
NFT STARS is preparing for the most epic drop of the season. The marketplace is about to auction the “Art of Blockchain” collection, which symbolizes the merge of contemporary art with modern science. The “Art of Blockchain” consists of 5 NFT works of art and their original oil paintings, including the legendary “CryptoMother”, dubbed the ‘Crypto Mona Lisa’, autographed by the creator of Ethereum — Vitalik Buterin. The 5 pieces will be auctioned separately on 30th July.
The Entire Collection is Finally Up for Sale
The “Art of Blockchain” collection consists of 5 pieces of art: “CryptoMother” also referred to as the Crypto Mona Lisa; “Miss Coin”; “CryptoFather”; “Ethereum”; and “Bitcoin”. The collection made its first appearance at a blockchain conference back in 2017 and since then, the physical works of art have been exhibited at various crypto and blockchain conferences around the world. The paintings have attracted a lot of interest from the community and from digital art collectors. In 2018, one NFT collector from the United States was ready to purchase the Crypto Mona Lisa for $6 million but the organizers rejected the offer. The painting was not put up for sale for a long time and finally now, the entire “Art of Blockchain” collection is to be presented for auction on the NFT STARS platform.
The 5 pieces will be auctioned separately. All five auctions are scheduled for 30th July. The bidding process for each auction will last 72 hours. So there’s no time to waste if you want to purchase the entire collection!

The Story Behind the “Art of Blockchain” Collection
The “Art of Blockchain” collection consists of 5 works of art, each honoring an important historical milestone in the development of the crypto community.
“CryptoMother” — The Painting Everyone is Hunting
“CryptoMother” is a legendary work of art that embodies the values of the new era of decentralized finance. Like a real crypto mother, she protects every block in the network and helps guide crypto enthusiasts in their decision-making.
“CryptoMother” has found a lot of fans across the world. For its significance and uniqueness, the painting is also often referred to as the Crypto Mona Lisa. At a blockchain conference once, the founder of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin saw the painting and liked it so much that he autographed it.
Many digital art collectors have tried to get hold of this painting for their collections but the current owner is reported to have rejected several offers as high as $6 million. The Crypto Mona Lisa will go live on the NFT STARS marketplace on 30th July, with a starting price of 400 ETH. The collector with the winning bid will get the “CryptoMother” NFT and the original oil painting (100 × 100 cm). The seller will cover the shipping costs.
“Bitcoin” — The One and Only
The painting “Bitcoin” represents how ground-breaking the introduction of Bitcoin was for the whole financial industry. Bitcoin changed how we think about and conduct transactions once and for all. While some try to fight it and others worship it, the first cryptocurrency remains a beacon for suffering crypto enthusiasts and a guiding star for altcoins.
“Bitcoin” will be presented for auction on 30th July. Similar to “CryptoMother”, the bidding process will last 72 hours and the winning bid will receive the NFT and the original oil on canvas painting (80 × 100 cm). The seller will cover the costs of the shipment and part of the proceeds will go to charity.
“Miss Coin” — The Muse for All Crypto Enthusiasts
“Miss Coin” isn’t as simple as she appears at first glance. She is much like a crypto mermaid in an ocean of digital tokens, raising coins from the deep and carrying her trophies up on her antlers. This seductive nymph inspires devoted admirers to perform heroic feats in her name. She wanders the darkest forests along tangled paths of cold wallets, always one step ahead of the thieves.
“Miss Coin” brings luck to her admirers. She anticipates their ups and downs and advises those in need. But those who abuse her generosity must witness her dark side.
This work of art featuring the seductive crypto mermaid will be auctioned off on 30th July. The bidding will last 72 hours and the lucky new owner of “Miss Coin” will receive the NFT and the original oil painting (100 × 60 cm). The seller will cover the costs of the shipment and part of the proceeds will be donated to charity. Save the date and try your luck with “Miss Coin”!
“Ethereum” — The Symbol of Faith in the Potential of an Individual
The “Ethereum” piece pays tribute to millions of like-minded people who not only invest their money, they also put time and energy into the development of the Ethereum network, playing a massive role in shaping and bringing the world to the next stage of self-organization. It’s a symbol of faith in the potential of an individual, emphasizing how one innovation — Ethereum — sparked the development of many new projects.
NFT STARS will present this artwork on 30th July. The bidding will last for 72 hours and the winner will receive the NFT and the original artwork (70 × 80 cm). As with the rest of the collection, the seller will cover the transportation costs and donate part of the money to the charity.
“CryptoFather” — The Guardian of All Crypto Souls
“CryptoFather” is the knight protecting the matrix. He’s not a revolutionary or an innovator. He’s the guardian of order, making sure everything is in its place and going smoothly. Staying in the shadows, “CryptoFather” guides crypto souls to growth and well-being.
This painting will be auctioned on 30th July. The auction will last for 72 hours and the winning bid will receive the NFT and the original oil painting (100 × 80 cm). The gallery selling the artwork will cover the transportation costs and donate part of the proceeds to charity. Get “CryptoFather”, your guardian on your way to crypto well-being.
