My art recorded on the blockchain - The Multicultural Dance

I still remember the day I received the assignment for this project, over 15 years ago. The teacher asked me and all the students in my class to create an artist reproduction and adapt it. I choose "The Dance" by Henry Matisse, and adapted it with my multicultural perspective. A world in which we are all connected by the power of love and acceptance in a multicultural dance.
Early this year, on a trip to Brazil, I decided to photograph this oil painting and record it on the Creary blockchain among other pieces I created over the years. You can find my Art recorded on blockchain here.
To me there was nothing too special about this piece. The Multicultural dance was just a piece I painted during my art course... Until this moment, where my view of the world looks off, and we can not hold hands anymore.  A world in which borders are being shut and fear is growing among its population.  Now I realized the importance of this painting and how it is important to showcase how I percei…

The Simpsons Cryptocurrency Episode - "Frinkcoin"


Cryptocurrencies are getting more popular than ever. Recently Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin symbols have been spotted in The Simpsons latest episode titled "Frinkcoin".  Frinkcoin is the 675Th episode of American animated sitcom which aired on FOX Channel February 23rd 2020. The plot of the comedy evolved around the development, adoption and the demise of Frinkcoin cryptocurrency. The show brought the subject matter to a wide audience and is quite educative about blockchain. In a very funny way of course.

Watch it on Fox


Many crypto advocates highlighted the episode on Twitter in celebration. Despite Litecoin being hilariously featured in an anti-blockchain formula; Charlie Lee the creator of Litecoin, was one of the first to tweet his excitement about the mention. 





Also on Twitter, @TheSimpsons account is having fun with the audience and the crypto community by running an asset pool. "Which one would you invest in?" With FrinkCoin taking the lead agains gold, renminbi and roadside corn. 





Quite funny, but certainly puts the value of money into perspective for many viewers who never stopped to think about it. After all currency, or better money, is something that the population acquire, use and find essencial to run a society. But most of us never really stop to think about how it was created, how it is administered and how the economic changes effect us. Finance, economy, investments are topics that only few dive into. These topics  are rarely presented to main stream in a comic manner and The Simpsons does an amazing job highlighting topics that need to be discussed by popular culture.

Overall as a crypto advocate,  I am personally quite happy with the exposure the show has given to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology in general. The audience of The Simpsons is quite large. According to Statista.com, "the 29th season of The Simpsons drew in an average of 4.08 million viewers" In addition the show is also translated into many languages and transmitted in many countries in world. It is certain that many people who have never heard about blockchain technology will learn about it now as they watch the "FrinkCoin" episode. It is not certain if many of of them will jump into the cryptocurrency boat yet, but it is nice to know that many will at least have an insight about the topic and hopefully be more receptive towards it in the future.
