The Genesis block is the very first validated block on the Bitcoin blockchain. (03.01.2009)

On the artwork you can see numbers and letters arranged in a certain way. The so-called hexadecimal system uses coded numbers and letters to be read by computers.
to be processed. This can be seen on the left-hand side in the gold-plated frame. To the right, in the column in plain text, you can see the famous sentence that Satoshi Nakamoto embedded in the block:

The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks

This is the headline of an article from 03.01.2009 from the newspaper “The Times”. Satoshi wants to draw attention to the situation in the financial sector and at the same time set a time stamp.

Interesting fact: The plain text on the right is the de-coding (decoding) of the hexadecimal view on the left.

On the back you will recognize 3 famous quotes from Satoshi Nakamoto:

  1. “I’ve developed a new open source P2P e-cash system called Bitcoin”
  2. “If you don’t believe me or you don’t get it, I don’t have time to try to convince you, sorry.”
  3. “Total circulation will be 21,000,000 coins.” It’ll be distributed to network nodes when they make blocks, with the amount cut in half every 4 years”

It is a real circuit board, it was manufactured in exactly the same way as computer circuit boards – exposed, etched, coated with solder resist, gold-plated and screen-printed with a white silkscreen


The story behind the art

Satoshi Nakamoto used PCs and laptops for the discovery and invention of Bitcoin. He wrote software that ushered in a new era with the help of computer technology.
Each of these devices contains processors, memory modules and other electronic elements, which are all connected to each other with a board and can only work together in this way:

The circuit board. It is the largest component and the most important control center of every computer, node or hardware wallet.

The circuit board is therefore the very foundation of Bitcoin. It is used as a canvas, like other artists use paper. Also to show that technology can be beautiful and that nobody has to be afraid of it.
