How to extract embedded files from my art

Dear collector,

if you read this article, you’ve probably bought one of my artworks containing hidden content. Here is a short tutorial of how to extract the content.

  1. Download the artwork to your favorite location on your computer (right-click-save-as). 
  2. Make a copy and rename it to .zip (instead of .gif).
  3. Depending on your operating system, you can either use WinRAR or command line (terminal) to unzip the file.
  4. Using terminal on Mac OSX you just cd to the directory where you saved the artwork and type:
    > unzip artwork.zip
    (It even works, if you type > unzip artwork.gif on Mac)
  5.  Enjoy the extra content!

Feel free to get in touch, if you need further help.

 

To the Moon!

This is my first experiment of embedding a Bitcoin wallet inside an animated gif using steganography.

The owner will be able to extract the private key of the wallet loaded with 0.02 BTC. The public address of the wallet is: 13P3m4paqsBRSUWogY74QLSFfJMFXwx4yq

The collector can use Terminal to extract the key like so “unzip 2Moon.gif”. Windows users can also use WinRAR to decompress the zip (just rename the gif to zip upfront).

To prevent the funds from being stolen, the buyer will need a password to unzip. This will be sent to the buyers Eth-address as an encrypted message using Mailchain. Alternatively I can send the password over Keybase chat (I’m shortcut there as well).

Please make yourself familiar with the required tools before bidding.
