myFINBEC: Where art and Bitcoin collide

Swisswinery Cave In Bec has been holding its art & wine event, myFINBEC, for a few years now, and Bitcoin users are able toget in on this cool project.


Here is how myFINBEC works: Artists fromacross Europe come to Switzerland to collaborate and create eight differentmurals on a stack of 672 wooden wine cases. The winery will later use theartwork on its bottles.


When the murals are finished, the whole thingwill be disassembled, each box will be filled with six wine bottles, and offthey’ll go.

Thisyear, the project’s third, is noteworthy for us because it is the first yearcustomers will be able to purchase the artwork/ wine with Bitcoin.


Going abroad

Thewinery then plans to head across Europe this summer to different art galleriesin all the big cities. There, customers will be able to buy a painted case ofwine, or even a single bottle. And Bitcoin will be accepted during the Europeantour.


“All too often the work of painters is beyondthe reach of most people, and myFINBEC makes it more affordable to have thechance to have a piece of original art in your home suitable for framing,” theproject’s site reads. “It's all about sharing.”
