Vires in Numeris by Aegis-Illustration Vires in Numeris by Aegis-Illustration

Personal commission about the nature of Bitcoin. The main goal is to print a series of posters of the finished artwork, and one of them is to be given to Satoshi Nakamoto himself, who is the creator of the virtual cryptocurrency. The illustration was created mostly in 3D and then post-produced in Adobe Photoshop. Some of the main concepts to be depicted are freedom, peace, the antifascist White Rose Association and the nature of Bitcoin itself. I decided to create a goddess of cryptocurrency and mathematics.

PROJECT INFO: “VIRES IN NUMERIS” (LATIN FOR “STRENGTH IN NUMBERS”).

3 January 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the genesis block for Bitcoin. Satoshi’s gift to the world was the creation of a protocol for digital scarcity that will help change the World for the better.

“Vires in Numeris”

…is a vivid and striking creation by Mario Sanchez Nevado (aegis-strife.net).  This artwork celebrates the birth of Bitcoin on 3 January 2009, and is layered with symbolism.

The digital goddess is freed from her shackles with the creation and adoption of Bitcoin.  Satoshi Nakamoto’s game-theoretic and cryptographic genius has digitized the immutability and scarcity of gold, as depicted by her golden raiments resolving into digital bits.

The coin is offered, like the fire of Prometheus, bursting with the light of a new paradigm bringing us out of the darkness of censorship.

Across the Earth, and even into space (thanks Blockstream), decentralized nodes transmit their trustless and permissionless data from peer-to-peer.  Behind the goddess we see the dawn of a new day.

Bitcoin offers us a superior technology for storing and transmitting value.  As we choose to adopt it, we are choosing the separation of money from state. Our numbers are growing, and there is “strength in numbers”.
