21ism Bitcoin Art Collective : Bitcoin's Creative Carousel
Celebrating the creative minds of the Bitcoin space in the categories Art, Design, Video, Memes, Music, Writing & Development.
New spin on the 5th of every month.
21ism Block03 - WORD - Citadel21
Featured in our WORD category this month is the fantastic Citadel21 @ctdl21 and its brilliant creators @BitcoinKatia and @Hodlonaut
Two of our favourite people in Bitcoin with a long history of batting hard for Bitcoin and contributing to the space in celebratory and inclusive ways.
Katoshi aka Katia also wrote our featured essay explaining exactly what motivated Citadel21.
Our man @HodlerThanThou sat down with these two diamonds to find out more about their life before Bitcoin and their love for Bitcoin and how that in turn led to them meeting and falling in love.
21ism Block03 - MEME - MICHAEL GOLDSTEIN aka @Bitstein
This month's featured Bitcoiner in our Meme category is the inimitable @Bitstein.
A longtime master of memes and probably one of the first follows for all newcomers to the space.
Apart from wanting to meme Bitcoin into the great unconscious he is also the founder of The Nakamoto Institute and JustMeat.co, two excellently curated repositories for Bitcoin and Carnivourism, one half of the fantastic The Noded Bitcoin Podcast and the writer of articles such as Everyone's a Scammer.
Our good friend and Bitcoin Plebgend, John Vallis, had a great long rip with Michael and we're pretty sure you're gonna love it.
21ism Block03 - MUSIC - KRISTY HARPER
In this 2021, 12 year Bitcoin Birthday Edition our feature for our 21ism Music Block is Kristy Harper.
Kristy is a London DJ & music producer and passionate Bitcoiner.
Here she talks to our own @SelfBankt about her music, life during Covid and of course Bitcoin.
21ism Block03 - CODE - NICOLAS DORIER
Our featured CODE/DEV this Birthday block is non other than Nicolas Dorier.
Nicholas Dorier is a French Bitcoin Dev, now based in Japan, who felt so betrayed & angry about BitPay’s malign actions during the 2017 Blocksize War that he coded an Open-Source alternative from scratch. The now famous tweet that started it all is perhaps one of the most seminal tweets in the history of the space.
BTC Pay has grown to become the keystone FOSS (Free Open Source Software) that exemplifies, perhaps more than any project, the core ideological values of Bitcoin and the tweet.
Interviewing Nicolas is @maxbitbuybit and @BitcoinQ_A
21ism Block03 - VIDEO - JIM EPSTEIN
For our Bitcoin Birthday Video feature we have chosen the talented, Jim Epstein.
New Yorker, Jim, is Executive Editor of ReasonTV & writer/producer at Reason.com, the leading Libertarian magazine & video website. He’s recently produced & released an epic four-part documentary series “Cypherpunks Write Code” available free on Youtube. It chronicles the origins & history of the hackers, cryptographers & activists who built & fought to secure the foundations of digital privacy in the early Internet.
Sitting down for this one was @SelfBankt
21ism Block03 - ART - DIM ZAYAN
Our ART feature this month is the multi-talented Dim Zayan aka @cryptgm
You might have already seen his incredible graphic novel Bulltardia but if you haven't you really must check it out. It's funny beautiful and really really cool. It has appeared on Twitter, of course, but is more famously a reoccurring feature in Citadel21.
Dim is a super interesting cat and another credit to the space. Daniel Prince aka @Princey1976 sat down with him to hear Dim's story.
