CryptoWiener captured cultural icons on the Etherum network

by CryptoWiener (Julia Staudach and Bernhard Nessler) (AT)
Blockchain is not just a game-changer for the financial sector. It started a cultural and social revolution with the invention of the NFT standard. CryptoWiener playfully explains this new technology and its impact on the online world and our daily lives. 200 unique handmade pixel portraits of famous and not so famous Austrian personalities were immortalized in the decentralized digital network that's holding endless possibilities. An expanding world of art and culture made in Vienna.
