Paris-based artist Pascal Boyart, who goes by the name “PBoy,” is also a crypto enthusiast and has been adding QR codes with his Bitcoin address for sometime. “He is also the first to have hidden digital currency in his frescoes,” his personal site claims. A perusal of his address’ page on Blockchain.com shows he was only modestly successful, taking in just a couple of hundred dollars worth of bitcoins since November 2017.
