A MAYFAIR gallery is to host a new exhibition where the art is exclusively available to buyers using cryptocurrencies.
The House of Fine Art (HOFA)’s new exhibition will run for eight weeks in their Maddox Street gallery, close to Hanover Square, before moving to Hollywood.
HOFA has teamed up with digital platform Uphold to handle payments in eight crypto currencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dash (DASH), Bitcoin Gold (BTG), XRP (XRP).
Pieces of work by artists including Zhuang Hong Yi, Richard Orlinski and Hunt Slonem will feature in the 2 month long exhibition.
A HOFA spokesperson told Forbes magazine: “We had already experienced great demand for transactions to be made with bitcoin and wanted to expand on this. We talked to Uphold and knew straight away that this was an opportunity too good to pass by. At the moment, digital currencies are becoming commonplace among a wide array of savvy consumers, providing a seamless, and cost-effective method to exchange value globally.”
HOFA is at 58 Maddox Street.
