BITCOIN SAT: ‘MOST VALUABLE DIGITAL CANVAS’ — ORDINALS ARTIST 

Bitcoin artist known as “Nuro” recently described the opportunity to inscribe his 3D neurogenerative artwork on a highly valuable “epic sat” as a “dream come true.” This particular satoshi, won during an auction, represents the first mined in the new Bitcoin halving block and was secured by Nuro and the Bitcoin art community “Book of Blob” on April 25.

Nuro, in an interview with Cointelegraph, expressed immense pride in using what he considers “the most valuable digital canvas ever” for his artwork. He and his community won this special satoshi, mined by ViaBTC, after a fierce bidding war that concluded with a 33.3 Bitcoin bid worth $2.13 million, placed in the last moments of the auction conducted by CoinEx Global.

The piece titled “Spike #1,” represents the first 3D neurogenerative art inscribed on Bitcoin’s Ordinals protocol, an initiative also spearheaded by Nuro through his project Nurorealm. Nurorealm is focused on using blockchain technology to preserve human consciousness and foster a community committed to artistic and technological freedom.

This particular artwork, enriched with music and a digitally generated voice from the artist Grimes, involved over 12 months of development and the integration of more than 50 different libraries. Collaborating artists “Eloc,” “EPIC CHEF STEAKTOSHI,” and “Bop” also contributed to the creation of the piece.

Reflecting on the significance of the auction, Nuro emphasized the aspiration among artists and enthusiasts within the Ordinals community to own and inscribe on an epic sat. ViaBTC highlighted the auction’s profound importance for the Bitcoin ecosystem, marking another expansion beyond its original peer-to-peer cash transfer functionality.

Special sats, like the one acquired by Book of Blob, are considered collectibles within the Bitcoin community, possessing unique value beyond their monetary worth, as explained by CoinEx Global. Funding for the successful bid primarily came from the Blob team and its supportive community.
