Artist inflates giant "Bitcoin Rat" in front of the Federal Reserve headquarters in NYC...

Nelson Saiers formerly helped manage a $600 million hedge fund, since then he's left the offices of Wall Street for an art studio, where he produces works based on the financial system. 

His latest piece, an inflatable a "Bitcoin rat" set up in front of the Federal Reserve building mocks Warren Buffet's now infamous quote that Bitcoin was 'probably rat poison squared'.

“There’s a lot going on and I’m hoping to at least illuminate some of the issues and some of the complexity involved in Wall Street” says Saiers.

The piece isn't permanent and will be removed later this week.
