A tribute to the people who defined cypherpunk,
described the idea and wrote the code.
CYPHERPUNKS OF THE WORLD
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.
Satoshi Nakamoto, the king, who left only his imprint in the code, with his eyes open. On both sides, the creators and ideological founders of cypherpunk, dreaming of digital freedom with their eyes closed.
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.
