"Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become"
- Arthur Schopenhauer

The present work is an electrifying rendition of XCOPY's iconic ghoulish animated figures and proclaims the often enunciated prophecy of the Crypto Art movement; the death of fiat currency.

XCOPY is an anonymous London based digital artist who begun producing animated artworks on Tumblr around 2010. XCOPY was the second ever artist to mint on the SuperRare platform, and in March 2021 his work Death Dip broke the SuperRare sales record when it sold for 1000 ETH (now circa $2.5 million).
