What Is The Boggz Project?
Launched in 2020, the Boggz Project produces unique, collectible digital renderings of currency as works of art. We’re inspired by the life’s work of J.S.G. Boggs, the Patron Saint of Cryptocurrency.
Our limited editions of digital art are distributed as NFTs, or non-fungible tokens. Each token represents a unique piece of digital art that can be held in private collection or resold to other collectors.
Never heard of NFTs? No problem. Think of them as digital certificates of authenticity that can’t be faked, copied or moved without your permission.
Who Is J.S.G. Boggs?
James Stephen George Boggs (1955-2017) was an American artist renowned for his paintings of U.S. currency that, as works of art, became more valuable than the bills they originally represented.
His so-called “Boggs Bills” were never intended to pass as legal tender. In fact, Boggs often included jokes and political statements within his drawings. Some were meticulously drawn doppelgangers of real money; others were meant to satirize or amuse.
Boggs also had a shrewd lens on culture. In 1995, more than two decades before the U.S. Treasury announced (and later delayed) its Harriet Tubman $20 bill, Boggs created his own $100 homage to the civil rights figure.
