Crypto Art Work

Our first Crypto Art Gallery took place on April 9th 2017, we brought together crypto artists from around the world and displayed some of the most famous crypto artwork out on the market place at the time.

The idea of Crypto Art Gallery was simple, it was formed to bring together the amazing bitcoin/crypto based artwork from around the world for everyone to view.

For 2019 Crypto Art Gallery will take place as part of CoinFestUK, this will bring more exposure to the art artists and enlighten the attendees to the amazing crypto artwork which has been created.
