Bitcoin Sculpture Inauguration @ Budapest/Hungary

The world’s first Satoshi Nakamoto statue …  Inventor of Bitcoin @ Budapest

Tuesday, September, 16.

4 p.m. Graphisoft Park

District III., 7. Záhony Street Budapest

For the first time in the world, a statue is being erected to remember Satoshi Nakamoto – founder of Bitcoin and the blockchain technology.

The unique “faceless” sculpture was produced with crowd funding based on the idea of András Györfi, it will be located in the Graphisoft Park in Budapest in a green environment. The bronze bust depicts a hooded figure with stylized facial features, alluding to both Nakamoto and the “people of the internet”. The face of the sculpture is made of a bronze-aluminum alloy, which the creators polish heavily to create a reflective surface so that anyone can recognize themselves when looking at the face.

The aim of the work of sculptors Tamás Gilly and Réka Gergely is to pay tribute to the icon of reforming the world of finance and the creator of blockchain.

The statue official inauguration will take place at 7.30 p.m. and will continue with an after party from 7.30 p.m by the MADHOUSE group.

The event is also open to the public.
