Description

The Friends of Satoshi ZimNote

An artifact of the fiat banking system in the era of Bitcoin.

A backpack full of 100 billion dollar bills? A dream for each of us – you might think …
Just some years ago, this was the reality for young and old, for poor and rich in Zimbabwe. But instead of finding themselves in a paradise à la “Wealth for All”, the Zimbabweans felt the hellish reality of an outdated currency system. The Zimbabwean dollar had a brutal hyperinflation and made the massive money in the pockets of the people nearly worthless. But the sufferers were the normal people of Zimbabwe, who had to drag their buckets full of savings to the marketplace.  Such scenarios can still be a reality anywhere in the world.  On the occasion of this 9th anniversary of Zimbabwe’s hyperinflation, the crypto-artist collective Friends of Satoshi commemorates this sad day of the legacy fiat system and, at the same time, celebrates its revolution.


About the Work


At the heart of this project is a collaboration between 5 well-known Crypto Artists from around the world, including:

  • Zoran Kutuzović a.k.a. Start the Art (Croatia)
  • Satoshi Gallery (U.K)
  • Crypto Imperator (Spain)
  • Cryptoheadd (Formerly Qrypto) (India)
  • The Bitcoin Penny Co. (USA)

The product of this collaboration is a reflection on the Bitcoin scaling debate that in many ways has divided the community. Governance continues to be a challenge that all decentralized OSS projects face. As a symbol of one of Bitcoin’s greatest strengths: diversity of opinion, each unique contribution combines to form a single, unified work of art.

Each note contains work from each of the listed artists! The front side is nearly identical across the series (allowing for very subtle differences due to the hand-created nature), while each back side has a completely unique Bitcoin Penny Co. drawing, in addition to the sealed hologram.
