My Art at Bitcoin 2022
by Ross Ulbricht (2022)
It has been a few months since we auctioned off my art at Art Basel. The sale has definitely changed things. Options that were beyond our reach before are now possible. We can look more broadly at making the whole system just, rather than focusing just on me. That is as it should be. There is a lot of work to do.
And we are moving forward with the idea of helping kids travel to visit their moms and dads in prison. There are charities who have already been doing this or similar projects, and we are reaching out to them. There is a lot more to it than just buying a plane ticket and hotel room, so hopefully we will find some people with experience and with their hearts in the right place. We are sending out requests for proposals (RFPs) and will learn as we go.
All of this has brought a new spark to my life. I have direction and purpose and I feel like I can make a difference again. The more money we raise, the more good we can do, so I have been busy creating my next art collection. We are auctioning it off at Bitcoin 2022 in April. The people there have stepped up to help us and everything seems to be coming together. I have put my heart, soul and mind into this collection, and I am really looking forward to unveiling it to you.
