I’ve made myself very rare here in the last few weeks. I’m sorry. But what perhaps seemed like a standstill was more of an art break. Because just because the stage is quiet and dark doesn’t mean that there isn’t a lot going on behind the scenes.
And a lot has happened! With Bitcoin and here too
Because even if there wasn’t much of it to be seen here, I’ve been very busy over the past few months. Especially since the first Wednesday in October.
At that time I gave a lecture on the subject of the future of money at the Leipzig Bitcoin theme evening . A topic that for me is bigger than Bitcoin, but which I only began to deal with through Bitcoin. So now a good eight years ago. For a long time it was more of a casual thing. But with the evening in October I had a reason to finally process the knowledge I had gathered up to that point a little more systematically.
The lecture then mainly focused on the question of what we actually know about the money of the future. My conclusion at the time: not much. Because neither in the financial sector nor in the stories of science fiction authors or the stories of other visionaries has the money of the future played a real role so far.
Which ultimately led to the question of how to change that
The simple answer found that evening: You’d have to do a storytelling competition on the subject. Wouldn’t it be cool if someone took care of it?
And that’s what I did. After sleeping over it, I started to develop a concept, went looking for supporters and in the past few weeks I have prepared everything so that today, in time for Bitcoin Genesis Day, my new heart project can start:
Magic Future Money , the writing competition for (im) possible stories about the money of the future .
