Make your own Bitcoin Miner!

Bitcoin of Things (BoT) is a workshop for everyone who wants to address issues related to media art, digital culture, critical economy, electronics and the Internet of Things (IoT).

The workshop will take place at Filodrammatica (Korzo 28/1, Rijeka), on Friday, 20th September, starting at 5 pm, and will last for around 2 hours. It will be led by César Escudero Andaluz and Martín Nadal, Linz-based Spanish artists whose Critical Triggers exhibition will open a day earlier at Filodrammatica Gallery.

No prior experience is needed, and the participation is free of charge. The workshop is limited for eight participants.
You can apply by sending an e-mail at (please write your name and phone number).


The theoretical introduction acquaints participants to concepts that help them to contextualise and better understand the Bitcoin and Blockchain world.

The practical part consists in working with a basic electronic circuit, soldering and microcontrollers to build a playful bitcoin miner out of ordinary objects such as hammers, staplers or salt-shakers. Participants will build their own BitCoin of Things (BoT) miner, combining a Wi-Fi microcontroller and different sensors.
