Originally painted in 1980, the artwork is set to be auctioned off by Dadiani Fine Art in London's Mayfair district, in partnership with blockchain platform Maecenas Fine Art. The auction will take place on June the 20. Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) will be accepted.
At the moment, the piece is valued at $5.6 million dollars - which is 730 Bitcoins at current prices. Also, the auction house has asked all participants to comply with local regulations to prevent money laundering.

But there are also people, such as Duncan MacDonald-Korth, one of the co-authors of the DACS "Art Market 2.0" report, who remain convinced that the technological integrity of blockchain will eventually transform the art market.
Blockchain creates a permanent, traceable record of each and every transaction, whether it's for art or Bitcoin.
