CURATING, CRAFTING & AMPLIFYING BITCOIN INSPIRED CREATIVITY
"I swear by my life & my love of it, I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."
Enter MVDEX. An artist who’s imagery slashes through the sanitised corporate investment portfolio bollocks and reminds us why we got into Bitcoin in the first place – the pursuit of freedom. In a scene where some artists slap a cutesy Bitcoin B on a canvas/NFT and call it Cryptoart, MVDEX’s work is a breath of fresh air.
"One quote that really struck with me & basically shapes my life is, “An entrepreneur’s mind. An athlete’s body. An artist’s soul"
Till Musshoff is a German YouTuber known for his professionally produced Bitcoin Channel that tackles a wide range of Bitcoin topics and rabbit holes. His road to becoming a Bitcoin content creator was paved a long time ago. This isn’t his first go-around on the YouTube carousel.
"We went to the neon graveyard in Las Vegas at night. It was all lit up and everything was freaking awesome!"
@VoltageGoat are CQ & M1, two Cypherpunk Virtuosos whose ambition is to create the most legendary Bitcoin neon signs & live price tickers the blockchain will ever see. Their steampunk neon Nixie Tube tickers have become objects of extreme desire and now update Bitcoin’s price on a mesmerising second by second basis.
"My generation is really struggling financially. Young people understand digital value & are adapting to it. Those buying Bitcoin are going to survive this, they’ll be the lucky ones."
For Block007 we’re proud to feature Karo Zagorus’ much awaited new book “Bitcoin & The Trust Problem” expected to release on Amazon in June. It examines a question at the very heart of this movement – the loss of trust in governments and institutions. The book’s based on Karo’s Masters Thesis and has some phemonemal cover art courtesy of @BitkoYinowsky who nailed the concept from the very first sketches he sent Karo – a picture paints a thousand words. Karo writes regularly for Citadel21.com and has also been published in Bitcoin Magazine. @Maxbitbuybit and Karo hashed out a great podcast rip, delving into the book, its story, Hungary and the hot mess that is 2021.
"Its just so fucking awesome man to wake up & shitpost with a bunch of optimists, people who want to work, take responsibility & care about the future."
At first, taking full responsibility for my finances, personal information and freedom seemed daunting. I’ve had moments of borderline fear when learning to securely hold keys to a future I desire. I worried it would not be manageable for me or that it would be so stressful that I wouldn’t enjoy the process. Stress no more, we’ve got a space packed to the rafters with crazies. Companies and people who do very little else than ponder the ways in which we can all become more free, self-sovereign and divorced from the legacy madness that surrounds us. Companies like Coinkite. People like Rodolfo Novak.
"The image the music industry has, that it’s the land of milk & honey . . . When I saw it from the inside my views were a little shattered."
Speaking to Pleb Music I discovered that not only is he trying to do this in his pseudonymous life but also in his civilian life and fiat job. Back working in the music industry after a slight detour, he is now helping a major player implement Bitcoin into their business model.
"Greg makes dank memes and gets paid for it – yet another sign that we are on the verge of an apocalypse."
If you’ve followed Greg’s Twatter feed for any more than a week, you’ll see just why this is; to him, anyone and everyone is fair game for the bullets from his barrels – from fellow bitcoiners to his friends to his colleagues at Strike. Hell, he’ll even turn the gun on himself if it’ll get a giggle.
