フィジカルビットコイン「悟 Satori」

What is Satori Coin?

Satori is a Japanese Buddhist term for awakening and is also commonly translated as enlightenment. It is called Satori because of the life-altering power of Bitcoin. Many Bitcoin users will attest that they see their lives as divided into two main periods; before understanding Bitcoin and after understanding Bitcoin. Indeed, knowing Bitcoin can dramatically change your view on what may arguably be the most important matter in life, money. Find out for yourselves what Bitcoin could teach you about money without the hassle of disclosing your identity to sign up for accounts and without the fear of remorse for purchasing something that could potentially be an expensive mistake. Go ahead, play around. Satori lowers the initial hurdle in obtaining Bitcoin, to the rock bottom, for enlightenment should be attainable for everyone.

"Value does not exist outside the consciousness of man.“  Carl Menger
Mengerian economic principles served as a basis for the Austrian economists like Mises and Hayek. He stated that value does not exist in things, but in the minds of the individuals who value them. So, does Bitcoin have value? That it is up to you decide.

There is 0.001BTC worth of value.

DETAIL 2

Intersecting diagonal red and blue bars at the top and bottom, and teal knots circling the inner square, express the metaphor of Bitcoin's blockchain as a woven tapestry, in which information (design) is methodically added to the entire ledger (tapestry). The ability to make changes to said information probabilistically decreases as more information is added; that is, the process of mining (weaving) ensures this information's security, which increases with time.

DETAIL 3

Parts of the orange sunburst break through, into the field of woven knots.
Inside the square is a sunburst with mechanical motif, and the Bitcoin symbol at its centre. As the sun's rays reach the black border, white arrows form at the corners pointing outwards. Where the black border signifies a threshold or horizon, the formed white arrows advise transitioning outwards -- "Think Outside the Box".

The black square is inscribed on the bottom border, with the date of Bitcoin's beginning: January 3, 2009. On this date, the 'Genesis Block' (the first block in the blockchain) was mined and christened with the day's headline from _The Times_, "The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks."

“There is no wisdom like frankness.” Benjamin Disraeli
He was a 19th-century British politician who twice served as Prime Minister. He, of course, never knew blockchain, Bitcoin, internet, or computer. But his quote describes in a succinct way the straightforward and transparent nature of blockchain, distributed networks, and open-source programming.

Disraeli was a conservative and it is highly unlikely that he would have embraced Bitcoin had the crypto currency been available during his time. But that said, because of his Jewish background he was forced to fight against discrimination. His experience of being subjected to harassment on unreasonable grounds made him implement a political style which bases the accommodation of people of all ranks. It is this all-inclusive stance that allowed him to serve, like the President Grover Cleveland of the United States, "unconnected two terms" as the British Prime Minister, and, after his death was praised as a national hero from people of the both sides of the politics. Moreover, the Times reviewed favorably that, "The fact that Disraeli is respected not only from his supporters but from political enemies prove that the political battle of our nation is divorced from hatred". Much like the political style of Disraeli, Bitcoin is all-inclusive and accommodates people of all ranks.

裏面 VERSO

DETAIL 1

The number six (expressed with concentric hexagons), refers to the popularly accepted belief that a Bitcoin transaction is practically irreversible after six confirmations, and is again seen in the triangular sets of knots towards the bottom, which forms a hexagon at each centre.

DETAIL 2

At the centre of the concentric hexagons is another sunburst, this time more vibrant. Lifting this seal to expose the QR underneath, one is crossing that threshold mentioned above, possibly for the first time, to the world of cryptocurrency. This representation of Bitcoin exploding outwards as a sunburst is adorned with a double helix -- a small reminder that at the base of everything exists coded instruction; be it Bitcoin, or our own genetic make-up.
