Ethereum-Based Virtual Museum Tokenizes Censored Bitcoin Artwork

Bitcoin artist "Bnoiit.c" has created an Ethereum-based virtual museum "Cryptovoxels" that ensures censored artworks are immutably preserved for an online audience. In its collection as of Aug. 25 has been a Bitcoin mural by French street artist Pascal "PBOY" Boyart, which was painted over by French authorities earlier this year.
Cryptovoxels' site tells the story of the subversive mural - a modern-day reworking of Eugène Delacroix's classic revolutionary painting "La Liberté guidant le peuple". The mural - created in honor of the 10th anniversary of Bitcoin's Genesis Block - had recast the rebels who rose up against King Charles X in 1830 as contemporary "Gilets Jaunes" protestors. Conceived as a street art treasure hunt, it contained a puzzle with a 0.284 BTC bounty, which could be solved entirely only by finding - and being physically in front of - the mural.
The mural has now been tokenized as a digital collectible - split into 100 ETH-based non-fungible tokens, which can be bought and sold via peer-to-peer digital collectibles marketplace OpenSea. Users wishing to display their fragment of the mural need to buy ETH-based "Land parcels" on Cryptovoxels - just as with artwork, these land parcels can also be bought and traded via OpenSea.
