First of all you see Satoshi… I based my version here on the incredible Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro… so this is Satoshi the Redeemer… in his hands you can see scales… the scales represent balance for humanitarian justice, economics, and the environment

In the background you see the rising sun of hope and that the clouds have a silver lining and to signify that despite our current dark times, good times are ahead

So what I’m saying here is that Satoshi the Redeemer is going to be delivering balance to the world

To see what is fundamental to this justice you will need to spin the piece around

The all seeing eye is now directly in the public’s sights… with transparent and censorship resistant technology like bitcoin and cryptography the tables can now be turned in the favour of the people, humanity and the environment

Healthy societies that serve first the people and the planet, operate in total transparency whilst the fundamental human right, the right to privacy is upheld

The alpha and omega, the first and last letters of the greek alphabet (since 8th century BC) support the message that privacy is the be all and end all… for privacy is the foundation of freedom of speech

The writing on the reverse side:

“Dosage: 250mics” – this is the first dosage that Alfred Hoffman took of LSD when testing for it’s side effects read more

“Privacy is the power to selectively reveal oneself to the world” is a quote from Eric Hughes A Cypherpunk’s Manifesto (1993) read more

Edition number – I have made 30 in total, your edition number is labelled here

“Vires in numeris: SHA256” – We have strength in numbers both in terms of people and in cryptography

2^256 = 115792089237316195423570985008687907853269984665640564039457584007913129639936

In English thats:

It is said that this number is so big that it is exponentially larger than the number of atoms in the known universe.

Even with a theoretical quantum computer, to try an brute force this number is an act of stupidity… it’s more secure than our current financial systems

The Bitcoin Pill design… a salute to a friend

I was originally going to do a red pill blue pill design… I will do these in the future… but this made sense to do a riff off of Lucho Poletti’s orange bitcoin pill… it was also a thank you, and a salute to a fellow crypto artist for their inspiration
