Outline

This installation gives visual and aural expression to real transactions with Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency with the highest trading volume today. The sound gradually increases as transactions occur, peaking with the generation of a block (transaction record). Viewers can intuitively grasp the workings of the blockchain technology that sustains Bitcoin, as well as ponder the issues it poses for a decentralizing society.
