"The People" reveals that the strength and resiliency of bitcoin comes from the people united and not one authority. Showing a female subject with her face hidden by graffitied spray paint that says "We Are Satoshi." In the background, we can see George Washingtons who are cut directly from US dollars which represents the founding fathers. Not the founding fathers of the United States but the founding fathers of bitcoin. We are not worshipping these founding fathers but paying respect to them for laying the foundation of the incredible system that we have today. In the print you can read the names of some of the original people that chose to "opt out" -- and you too can fill "your name here"...
