A street artist known as “Cryptograffiti” created Bitcoin billboards in some cities in America last month.



These billboards are displayed in 12 cities with the Federal Reserve Bank in America, including Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Chicago. Each of the billboards proposes Bitcoin as a financial stability alternative for people.

Billboards feature slogans like “Take Back the Power”, “Get Out of This Corrupted System” and “A Peaceful Revolution”.

The campaign criticizes the policies of the US government following the abolition of the gold standard in the 1970s. It also promotes Bitcoin as an alternative money system.

Cryptograffiti said in a statement on the subject on Twitter:

With no limit on how much money could be minted, he was now free to create an unlimited amount of dollars. When the Fed prints money, inflation occurs and prices rise. Because the dollar’s value is decreasing.


Cryptograffiti’s Bitcoin ideology

Cryptograffiti’s personal goal is to make money independent of the country. And he wants more people to believe in this ideology. He also turned to art to do this.

Although many people in the Bitcoin community define themselves as liberal, Cryptograffiti does not express itself that way. But he admits that the inspiration behind these billboards is largely from libertarian thinking. Especially the idea that the US Federal Reserve should not print money forever …

There really are problems with inflation at the root of all this. I noticed that many people do not trust the statistics they give about economics.

However, the “Bitcoin revolution” as defined by Cryptograffiti is not about to take to the streets with kicks and screams. Instead, he quietly goes about his job, trying to lure newcomers into an alternative reality.

What Bitcoinists do is build this new existence and do it with their wallets instead of going out and protesting.

But Cryptograffiti isn’t doing his art in hopes that it will get everyone’s attention. He has a target market in mind: the masses that haven’t yet accepted Bitcoin’s promise.

Cryptograffiti’s billboard art is designed to deliver Bitcoin’s message and promise to working class communities in a way people can understand.

He is not a programmer or a coder, but he believed in Bitcoin from the early years and wanted to do his part to support his cause. As an artist, Cryptograffiti leaves the discussion of Bitcoin’s mechanics to others, focusing instead on capturing the essence of Bitcoin.

The purpose of my work is to simplify some of these concepts and the rather complex jargon so that more people can understand them.

While corporate money is flowing into Bitcoin in an unprecedented amount, Cryptograffiti focuses on ordinary people instead. He argues that Bitcoin has not yet reached the people who need it the most, because of where they live, their social environment or circumstances: “It should have been the people’s money.” says.

This type of initiative is unlike billboard campaigns targeting high-income areas such as London where wealthy citizens live.

Bitcoin billboards seen in America are not trying to use Bitcoin for the first time to help those in need. Cryptograffiti also painted a mural on the Venezuelan border a few years ago.

Its aim was to raise awareness of how refugees could use Bitcoin to their advantage as a safeguard against Venezuela’s paralyzing inflation problems or as a way to leave the country altogether.

The artist, who painted President Maduro in his mural, tried to help ease the political and economic pressure on Venezuelans under the Maduro regime by covering the president’s mouth with the hashtag #AirdropVenezuela.

According to Cryptograffiti, the mural represents a way for Venezuelans to “literally and figuratively” bring down President Maduro.

Cryptograffiti leverages Bitcoin to support Venezuelans who are already oppressed and target the US government’s monetary policy. Its work will continue until Bitcoin becomes more accessible to those in need from all over the world.

What I want to see is to make people going into Bitcoin as “delicious” as possible, so that it is more open to ordinary people.

In addition to trying to revolutionize the financial world, Cryptograffiti is also looking for ways that Bitcoin can support its counterparts in the creative industries. In particular, there are high hopes that the Lightning payments will make other artists a living with Bitcoin.

I’m really optimistic about how lightning payments and micropayments in general can help artists.
