Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) enthusiasts can now decorate their living spaces with limited edition Bitcoin-themed artwork by Texas-based Cryptoart Publishers. Cryptoart’s online store will now accept payments in BCD, a popular digital currency designed for speed and accessibility.
Cryptoart’s catalog features exclusive designs by several select artists, inspired by both broader crypto themes and specific coins like Bitcoin, Dogecoin and Litecoin. Charlie Lee, the creator of the latter, is a known collector of Cryptoart and has praised it as a “beautiful intersection of art and cryptocurrency.” A piece of Cryptoart also hangs in the home of Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, following its use in a Canadian senate hearing on cryptocurrency.
“I can’t think of a better way to commemorate this historic time in the history of currency than with limited edition crypto-inspired art,” said Carl Shicun, Bitcoin Diamond’s community manager. “We’re glad that BCD can now be used to purchase these one-of-a-kind pieces.”
Cryptocurrency payments provide higher efficiency for both merchants and customers. With Bitcoin Diamond, transactions can be verified in a matter of seconds at a fraction of the fees charged by credit card processors. BCD also protects merchants from costly chargebacks and increases accessibility for digital currency-holding shoppers.
Over the past several years, cryptocurrency has emerged as the next evolution of money, thanks to its convenience, cost-effectiveness, and decentralization. Designed as a means of the transaction as peer-to-peer electronic cash, it matches the functionality of traditional fiat currency and goes beyond inefficiency, accessibility, and security. Bitcoin launched in 2009 as the first cryptocurrency, and hundreds of others have since followed.
Cryptoart allows the crypto community to express their affinity for digital currency through exclusive artistic prints. Each limited edition piece is printed with archival inks on museum quality paper and hand-assembled and packaged with a certificate of authenticity. Owners can even use the painting as a cryptocurrency wallet, with a wallet QR code featured in the corner of each piece and private key securely hidden on the back.
Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) is a Bitcoin fork created to solve slow transaction confirmations and high threshold requirements. Through BCD Pay, business owners can offer their products to a global market without needing to absorb expensive fees from international payments or worry about costly chargebacks from indecisive or fraudulent customers.
In 2018, BCD debuted BCD Bazaar, an international marketplace that gives customers access to a wide range of products from across the world by accepting payments in Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) or Bitcoin (BTC).
