Madness of Crowds inspired by the hype cycle, a group psychology of markets driven by fomo, greed, and panic.
This painting depicts the Cookie Monster compulsively consuming data as a woman walks through a digital landscape, quietly being followed by birds. All of the QR codes are scannable and lead to different places. As well as being tokenized, this painting is an ethereum wallet which contains other ERC-721 assets.
Inspired by an academic paper called “Show me your cookie and I’ll tell you who you are” where using browser tracking cookies the author could not only tell someone’s age, race, gender, but also where they lived, their level of education, and could often accurately predict the user’s future actions.

They are digital rare tokens secured by the Bitcoin blockchain using the XCP protocol.
What are the token’s functions:
1. Subscription. token holders receive distributions of Johnny Dollar’s digital rare art.
2. Purchase physical art with JOHNNYDOLLARs at a discount.
3. Access to special features and events
What do I need to use the token?
JOHNNYDOLLAR can be stored on any BITCOIN address, but it is best to use a counterparty wallet in order to access it’s full potential and have some fun. I like IndieSquare for mobile.

Examples of past distributions:
While many like to claim first in the crypto world, I do not claim the first of anything. I am making solutions for my specific situation. Surrealist painter Salvador Dali had an art subscription model many decades ago.
Thanks to all that encouraged, inspired, and gave technical support, Theo Goodman, Dan Anderson, Scrilla and DJ PEPE, Gustavo at Artolin.
Why did I make this? It is an experiment to help the artist distribute art to collectors, patrons, and fans, without the need for third parties and marketing. Allowing for more time to make art.
Is the JOHNNYDOLLAR a security? No, because I the artist, make no promises of future distribution. I may or may not make, or distribute digital art. I probably will, considering I have been making art for two decades, but I maintain the choice whether or not to create.
Are there any plans to use other blockchains? Currently, the JOHNNYDOLLAR will be for Digital created art and video.
Due to the difficulties using the Counterparty protocol on which the token runs, the JOHNNYDOLLAR is no longer distributing digital assets.
