This Pixelart NFT includes a physical retro-crypto terminal as described at twitter.com/cryptoterminals - it includes shipping of a working Mac Plus computer with custom hardware & software to show the full NFT pixel art piece, and run a BTC and ETH price terminal off of WiFI. This series is a run of 5 terminals.

The NFT art is a high resolution photo directly off the CRT taken with a Sony A7RII 42MP camera. Those are real scanlines! It shows about 1/5th of the full piece, which shows in full within the terminal software. The terminal software and pixel art display occur within a @Hypercard stack on the Mac that makes use of the serial XCMDs and serial port. The Wifi is provided via an @ESP8266 that runs @Micropython to periodically fetch BTC and ETH prices from the free @Coingecko API, and then push to the Hypercard stack. On the Mac Plus, disk is provided by an included FloppyEMU (bigmessowires.com) that uses an SD card for storage of the MacOS and the Hypercard stack.

Some more technical details are at https://github.com/cryptoterminals/maccryptoterminals/

I would ask that with any re-sales the old owner safely packs and sends the hardware to the new owner, but....honor system...

This is a functional art piece bridging old and new technologies and cryptocurrencies and exploring the boundaries of the inter-relationship between physical and digital art.
