No one mascot, decentralization Smiley



Maybe not such a good idea Sad

Or best idea ever?!?!?! Love the animation!

But wasn't Quixote actually insane, attacking useful constructions thinking they were monstrous enemies?

Just like some forum members!

Yeah, Quixote was pretty much a figure of complete ridicule. But more recently he's become more associated with romantic valor and hope in the face of hopelessness--"to dream the impossible dream"-- and this is a noble association. Besides, Bitcoin is the subject of a lot of ridicule among the mainstream.

So perhaps Quixote's example is useful both as an inspiration for noble ambition, and as a reminder of the dangers of irrational exuberance.

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Since the current Bitcoin symbol is being shared with a country, maybe it is time to share something else, and get the mascot that Bitcoin deserves




I had to uninstall Photoshop for something, I hope it isn't noticeable

Bad license. Bitcoin logos are public domain for a reason. Even the Bitsquirrel are public domain.

In the race for mascot dominance, it is fatal to have copyright restriction.

The irony of your claim when Bitcoin client isn't public domain. LOLZ.

The icon for our non-public domain project MUST BE public domain.   You know how bad it would be if our non-public domain project had a non-public domain icon? .... It would be like 9/11 times 100.

Can somebody draw a Captain Bitcoin! ?

He fights for liberty in a world awash in decay and fraud.

He wears a mask, a cape, and a large Bitcoin emblem on his chest.

I agree that we should have more than one mascot for the Bitcoin Project, to emphasize its distributed nature. I propose that these should be Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Woodsman, and Scarecrow from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.



If you haven't read the original book, you can download it from http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/55 .

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is regarded as an allegory to our current Federal Reserve System. An extensive analysis can be found at http://freedom-school.com/the_wizard_of_oz.pdf .  In brief, here are some of the stronger points that suggest this allegory:

  • “Oz” is the abbreviation for “ounce”, which is the unit of measure for gold bullion. At the time the book was written, the U.S. currency was on a gold standard.
  • The yellow brick road again suggests the nearly endless stacks of bricks of gold held at Fort Knox, which back the U.S. currency.
  • Dorothy's shoes in the original book were actually silver, not ruby. She walked on the yellow brick road via silver, which is what many of the coins of the day were made from.
  • Emerald City is dazzling to behold, and green throughout. Even the sky is green when within the city as is the sunlight that streams from above. However, this is only because all visitors are forced to wear green spectacles when in the city. If you remove the spectacles, the city is revealed to look no different than any other city. The green of the city is taken to be analogous to the “greenbacks” which are the paper currency of the U.S. If you remove the ink, though, the bills are revealed to be nothing more than paper.
  • The Wizard's palace is spectacular, and the Wizard himself is terrifying and daunting. Surely nobody can oppose him. However, the Wizard is actually just an ordinary person. He is a fraud pretending to be more imposing than he really is. The Wizard is considered to be an analogy to the Federal Reserve, who controls the U.S. money supply and answers to nobody. However, if people collectively did not have confidence in the dollar, its value would be exposed as pure fiction and the Federal Reserve's power would immediately fade.

These four main characters of the story, with their intelligence, heart, and courage, overthrew the great and powerful Wizard of Oz. In fact, before the Wizard fled after being exposed, he handed the rule of Oz to Scarecrow, since he was the most intelligent person in the land. As you can see in the illustration above from the original book, the Scarecrow sits on the throne of Oz.

Because of the analogy, and the near instant recognition that the general populace has of these characters, I can think of no better mascots to represent the spirit of Bitcoin.

This would do better as a contest, but I'm sure the community will come up with something eventually  Grin

If we really think this is a good idea which it might be if we put thought behind it than go to a forum
with professional illustrators and offer a good bounty, something like 50 or 100 Btc and some ideas.

I personally think the Bitcoin logo acts somewhat like a mascot.

The format should be vector preferably svg.
