Is this the Banksy of the cryptocurrency world?

Aktiv Protesk is one of a new wave of artists who uses cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, to sell his digital work.

Preferring to remain anonymous, the Manchester-based designer says it's "just another form of currency".

"I can change it for US dollars or I can keep it and see if the value increases over time.

"That's why I don't charge huge amounts of money - for me, it's more about sharing my art to a wider audience."
