BITCOIN CREATIVE CAROUSEL
CURATING HIGH SIGNAL, BITCOIN INSPIRED CREATIVITY EVERY MONTH
"21ism is taking the Orange Pill. Making your way towards the exit. Building a future that’s better for all. Creativity. Optimism."
We celebrate Art as The State suppresses it. We champion creativity, thought, growth & freedom whilst fading fiat rulers feed us recession & fear.
Bitcoin is an idea whose time has come. It’s taking root in the hearts & minds of millions with a desire for change. Bitcoin’s Truth Machine is a safe haven for storing value in uncertain futures. Sovereignty through mathematics for the enrichment of every individual on Earth. Rules not rulers.
Our aim is to celebrate Artists across mediums, inspired to create by the ultimate expression of freedom – Bitcoin. Art is one of the languages it speaks & every month we take a spin on the ‘Creative Carousel’ to feature new Artists. Enjoy Artist Features on our website & podcasts at anchor.fm/21ism
"I have the feeling Bitcoin’s the last Underground Movement on Earth."
CPN seems the obvious choice as our inaugural Artist – iconic works with bold colours and an inimitably distinctive style. He’s a Graphic Designer who co-founded a Czech Art group & Paralelní Polis. His screen prints adorn the walls of Bitcoin Maximalists around the world.
His ikigai/mission is to transform Bitcoin’s memes & historical milestones into a variety of visual media with a focus on large format, manual screen printing techniques.
"Whatever the medium is, whether it’s art, podcasting, writing or film – you need to find that story to tell."
“Hard Money” simply blew us away – a compulsive piece of film making that explores the basis & history of sound money. It lays a solid foundation of understanding for Newbs. In a way it’s WTFHappenedIn1971.com in movie form.
Richard’s an Independent Film Maker with his own production company – Lightbox Pictures. He’s led Adventure Travel expeditions to Papua New Guinea with another start-up of his & written a book about Australian military history. He’s had a lifelong interest in Economics, disillusioned at University but rekindled on discovering the Austrian School. Since finding sound money & the Bitcoin rabbit hole – he’s been falling ever since.
"Bitcoin’s the most important thing I’ve ever discovered. It’s given me so much, I’ve learned so much & got to meet so many amazing people."
21isEnough’s Open Source Bitcoin LightningATM is table top ATM that you feed with coins & that spits out satoshis – direct to your mobile Lightning Wallet. It can send single satoshis over the Lightning Network in a trust-less manner. To us, it’s genuinely mind blowing & makes this technology tangible with sick ass design aesthetics too! It’s dope.
21isEnough literally ‘breathes bitcoin’ – maintaining an own open source bitcoin project, attending Bitcoin conferences regularly, living & working amongst Bitcoiners, keeping abreast of technical developments & currently building a Bitcoin business in Switzerland.
"Morpheus: Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world."
One of Bitcoin’s Great Writers – DerGigi is a Bullish Bitcoiner, Austrian & meme hoarder. He writes open source words & code for Bitcoin & his cup floweth over with passion! He’s known for his spiritual awakening to Bitcoin & success in communicating this through his words. His first book, 21 Lessons, is one of the most recommended books amongst Bitcoiners. He’s also launched various Bitcoin projects with a focus on privacy & open-source education.
"When I started working for money I became interested in the 2008 crash & thought there needed to be something better. This is where bitcoin grabbed my attention."

"When I saw the unrest, when I saw we’d past a point of no return, I had to come up with a plan of where we’re going. And, if I could, lead anyone who understood what I was saying on that journey."
@Iamthecharacter famously blessed the BLM rally mic with truth & profound insight & is doing so again with TIME MACHINE’s well-crafted, arse shaking, hooky HipHop. TIME MACHINE consists of Comel, Jaysonic and DJ Mekalek. They first came to our attention after Comel @Iamthecharacter, delivered his rousing speech at a Black Lives Matter rally in LA this spring.
Their latest album ‘The Test Of Time’ is original, textured, cheeky & just plain awesome. Its been blaring through our speakers here at 21ism’s French HQ ever since!
"Freedom should the default state. Since my 20s, I’ve tried to live my life as if the state didn’t exist. Bitcoin is THE thing."
