The first NFT platform that uses the Bitcoin Liquid Network instead of Ethereum or Counterparty.

The Liquid network is a bitcoin sidechain where transaction fees are denominated in L-BTC, Liquid Bitcoin,
which is pegged 1:1 to bitcoin. 

 



Thirty years after, eleven creators of idea and code are putting on masks again, the same masks as in Wired magazine, May 1993. 

However, this time the masks take the form of raw painted profiles of the eleven individual faces.
Wide-eyed Satoshi Nakamoto, the king who left his imprint only in code, is in the middle, on either side of him, the creators and ideological founders of cypherpunk, with their eyes closed, dreaming of digital freedom.
The title of the series is based on an introduction in which Timothy C. May presents the readers of the Mailing list with the text of The Crypto anarchist manifesto.
