This artboard has 3 features:
There are 1 million pixels on the canvas.
Each pixel costs 1 satoshi to paint.
Pixels can be painted over indefinitely.
Technically, Satoshi's Place is a great way to experience the speed of micro-transactions through the Lightning Network. It’s also a fun and decentralized way to share your message. If you're a developer interested in building scripts, bots and services for Satoshi's Place, there is also API documentation: The entire project is available, open-source, on Github.
In terms of art, it can be compared to a collaborative performance art conducted on the blockchain. Every time you open this board, you’ll find some new and creative paintings from people all over the world. The painting process is a part of the art itself. And you only pay 1 Satoshi to paint 1 pixel, so art is quite affordable here.
How does the creator of this project describe it? Check one of his twitter posts.
What a metaphor.
Perhaps, hundred or thousands of years later, when the future archaeologists dig along with the blockchain, they’ll stare at your painting and try to figure out the mystery pattern you left behind.
