Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous creator of Bitcoin, already has a public statue in homage to his contributions, inaugurated today August 16 in the city of Budapest, Hungary.
The statue represents the inventor of Bitcoin, who never revealed his true identity , and disappeared from public life in April 2011, which is one of the great mysteries in the history of cryptocurrencies.
“The goal of the statue is to honor Satoshi Nakamoto, whose work we believe deserves to be remembered,” says the organization of the statue project on its website.
The face of the statue is made of bronze, which thanks to its reflective surface allows spectators to see their faces on the sculpture, which would express that «We are all Satoshi».
The monument is located in Graphisoft Park, a business park with large green spaces and various technology companies, north of Budapest.
At noon today a crowd of Bitcoin enthusiasts and onlookers surrounded the bust of Satoshi Nakamoto in Budapest. In the same park there is also a statue dedicated to Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, inaugurated in 2011.
Journalist Andras Györfi, who runs a local cryptocurrency media, is the mastermind behind the statue idea, we reported in CriptoNoticias in May 2021, when plans to erect the statue were known.
“Represents Satoshi. Sure, we don’t know what it looked like, but this statue has a stylized face made of reflective bronze and aluminum… if you go to the statue, look at his face and you will see your face, ”Gyorfi told CGTN during the unveiling.
Gyorfi said he believed Satoshi never revealed his true identity, then B. itcoin has never been linked to a person , “and this can be argued as a decentralized system in which no group or person is in control,” he said. .
The creation of the Satoshi Nakamoto statue was funded by Hungarian cryptocurrency companies and supported by members of that community for the past 6 months. The sculptors are Tamas Gilly and Reka Gergely.
This was not the only tribute paid to Satoshi Nakamoto, although it is the first public statue in the world. As reported by CriptoNoticias, last April 2021, the House of Representatives of the state of Louisiana, in the United States, recognized the contributions in the economy left by the creator of Bitcoin.
