Anti-Euro Art Spreads in Paris After Protests; Artist Accepts Bitcoin Donations

One of the countries where art plays an important role in the daily lives of millions of individuals, street art is spreading with anti-Euro messages.

The author of these paints, Pascal Boyart (PBOY) has also added a Bitcoin QR code to receive donations for his work.

During the last few months, Paris and other cities in France have been affected by a large number of protests. The movement, that started as a protest against oil’s price increase, became an anti-system and anti-establishment movement.

Now, these individuals are known as Yello Vest protesters and have been marching on the streets of France for several months.

One of these Yello Vest protesters had a jacket with the inscription “Buy Bitcoin” on it. There are several individuals that are against higher taxes, the role that the European Union plays in France and how Macron, the president of the country, is managing the nation.

Those that support Bitcoin have been marching against the banking system in the country, against the Euro and in favour of a Bitcoin revolution. It is worth mentioning that the traditional tobacco stores “tabac” in the country started selling Bitcoin to interested users.

Eric Larchevêque, the CEO of Ledger, a hardware wallet manufacturer located in France, said that the yellow vests do not really know about Bitcoin. Indeed, he said that they do not believe that cryptocurrencies will be solving their problems and for what they are marching against.

In this mural, it is possible to see Eugène Delacroix, a recognized French painter and Impressionist, burning a $100 euro banknote.

Boyart accepts donations and payments in virtual currencies for his art and is an active member of the community. At the same time, his work has been featured in many different news outlets such as The New York Times or the Washington Post, among other recognized companies such as Reuters or Le Monde.

Bitcoin was created ten years ago by Satoshi Nakamoto with the intention of fighting against centralization, financial institutions and monetary policy from central banks around the world.
