By now it probably hasn’t escaped your attention that earlier this week the original (and many would argue, still the best) cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, broke through the $50,000 price point for the first time in its history.
Whether you are a newcomer to the party or fondly remember mining Bitcoin (BTC) with a GPU rig a decade ago, it can’t help but feel like a pretty momentous occasion. It is the culmination of all of the support, belief, and of course money, that each of you has invested into Bitcoin.
To commemorate this, we got our talented artists to put together a piece of art celebrating you, the Bitcoin community, propelling BTC past this significant price point.
This has been minted into a strictly limited edition of 50 nonfungible tokens, which are available through our Rarible profile. The price of each NFT will be $1,000 (or to be more precise 0.5 ETH), valuing the entire collection at an entirely appropriate $50,000 at launch.
Of course, Bitcoin doesn’t end its journey here. Ultimately, the price of BTC is less important than its power to transform the world of traditional finance. And although in its decade-plus existence it has certainly shaken up the incumbent financial markets, the road to fulfilling its full potential still lies ahead.
But nobody would begrudge us taking a quick breather at this point; giving ourselves a little slap on the back in the knowledge that “we were there” when Bitcoin reached this point in its journey.
And for 50 of you, there is the chance to commemorate this by owning our NFT. Wear it like a badge of honour for all of the work we have collectively put in so far.
Here’s to all of you and the start of Bitcoin’s next chapter.
