I wish to thank bithobo
for creating, with my input, the following image. For his efforts, I'll be donating 5 BTC to the very next Bitcoin100
Most of you may be wondering what this is all about, and what the hell this image has to do with it.
Quite frankly, I barely have a clue, too. But upon first seeing bithobo's handiwork here
, I couldn't rest till he completed what I envisioned, above.
What you're viewing is a mock-up of the obverse side of a two-sided Bitcoin bill. Before I proceed, allow me to state that the vanity address is fake, but possibly important to the talking points of this thread. If this were a real bill, as bithobo sees them being one day, that vanity address would match the large QR code within the image which, by the way, does work and links to the water.org website. On the other bills created, he has the URL on the side directed toward bitcoin.org, whereas I suggested water.org in this example, again, up for discussion on this thread. The QR code above the Bitcoin symbol links to bitcoin.org and, it too, is functional. The water.org logo in the image was acquired from their website. Note the same blue hue from the logo is used in the two number ones, which also incorporates the color orange, represented in the Biitcoin logo. That same shade of orange is carried over to the texts on the right side of the overall image.
But enough of the design elements. The question remains, what the heck are we going to do with it? Hence this thread. This image in my mind kept pulling at me, and I felt that someway, somehow, this can be utilized by Bitcoin in general and, moreover, Bitcoin100
in particular. Yes, I have some ideas, but I also felt that during any articulation, my thought process would get lost in translation. Therefore, I made the conscience decision to have the community discuss what direction, if any, should be taken in respect to this image which represents a physical Bitcoin bill--if it were real.
Feel free to discuss the design elements, as well as what you would like to see changed and why. Also, ask questions, thus allowing me to pick my brain to conjure up answers.
The one thing I like to bring to your attention is picture, if you will, this type of bill uniquely designed for other nonprofit organizations, let alone the myriad of corporate institutes.
Note the vanity address, albeit being fake.
Here's hoping you enjoyed the image, regardless if you opt to not join the conversation.
