Cool Bitcoin Current images

A few nice bitcoin current images I found:

BTC☆LTC — Coin of the Realm, seen in Si Valley… well, until steganography cripples the current build

Digital files can be uploaded to the bitcoin blockchain, to be propagated with every transaction, and critically, in the current implantation, they can not be removed by anyone. As an early proof of principle, a picture was permanently inserted in 2011.

Now imagine that illegal content is inserted by someone (presumably from a geography where it is not illegal by international jurisdiction). From that point on, every participant will be trafficking in that illegal content, knowingly once the word gets out. So, the question becomes: what kind of content would motivate enforcement of the law, and/or public rejection of the system? DMCA and munition (encryption code) export violations are not quite motivating enough. Perhaps child porn or denigrating cartoons of Allah would do the trick in certain cultures. Anyone using bitcoin would be trafficking in these steganographically encoded images.

What am I missing? (And clearly, some people would not care about any of this; my question is whether this easy act would cripple mainstream adoption)

Meanwhile, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Bitcoin!
Today is six years from the first block.

A post-interactive installation and reactive sculp- ture thematizing artistic production as well as alternative economics. Bitcoincloud excludes itself from the art market by generating Bitcoins in direct relation to the attention it receives from its audience.

Artistic Technology Research explores current practices in (new) media art. The project investigates, amongst other things, the question of how aesthetic parameters in new media art react to the fragmentation of media: How does the classic concept of aesthetics transform in the age of hyperlocality? Are aesthetics in works of critical media art changing towards an attention aesthetic or a fragmented aesthetic? In this context the transformation of the concept of aesthetics is explored and the necessity of aesthetic parameters in media art as research-based art is brought into question.
