It may take a trillion years, but with a Game Boy you can generate Bitcoin. StackSmashing converted a Game Boy into a Bitcoin miner. It’s not very fast, because the current technology for generating Bitcoin works 125 billion times faster than this Game Boy…

Stacksmashing uses a real, classic, unmodified Game Boy to create a true Bitcoin mining machine. The handheld console has a blazingly fast 4.19 megahertz processor and 8 kilobytes of video memory. Compare that to a modern console, for example the Xbox Series X with a 3.8 gigahertz CPU and 16 GB of video memory. Practically no difference!

He still needs a few accessories to make the whole thing work. He writes his own code for the Game Boy, uses a Raspberry Pi to connect the console to a PC and a special USB flash drive in the game slot. After all, the Game Boy does not support the Internet and blockchain and the Internet are fundamentally linked. And yes, in the end Stacksmashing manages to get the impressive project off the ground!

Fine Art Details

Giclée fine art print

All works are hand-singed and numbered then made into a limited edition giclée art print.
A giclée is a high-quality art print that meets high requirements. Giclée printing is one of the best methods for digitally reproducing art prints. This process uses acid-free paper and a high-quality digital printer 12-colour pigment ink. Please note that the colours of artworks may differ from those on the screen. I try to capture the colours exactly, but every monitor is calibrated differently.

Although the art work looks beautiful and will last for years due to the selected materials, it is also quite fragile. Keep this in mind when opening the print tube and installing a frame.

Max Supply

Max supply means that each art print is printed in a limited, numbered edition and will never be reproduced again. This phenomenon has its origins in the old printing techniques that still used printing plates, which – to guarantee the highest quality – could only be used a few times.

Nowadays, limited editions are used to keep art prints special and exclusive, to ensure that the work does not hang in every home. Modern printing techniques, such as giclée, ensure that these limited editions are affordable, durable and guaranteed to be of the highest quality.

Certificate of authenticity

All works have a certificate of authenticity and are carefully and personally checked, numbered, signed by Mr Rogue. The certificate assures you of the limited edition, provenance, authenticity of Mr Rogue art work. The certificate is created by verisart and will be digitally delivered to the email address provided with the order.
