In the spirit of tradition, there will exist 100 "cards" that are needed to enter an artwork into the Bitcoin War Bonds series as a contributing artist (anyone other than Tommy).
This "Fake Rares"-style mechanic has one major twist – instead of 'DESTROYING' the token to confirm submission into the series, an artist must 'BURN' the token by sending it to Satoshi's genesis address: 1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa – this ensures that as the final token is 'BURNED' the final market data is permanently stored in an immutable record on the most famous BTC address in existence.
I hope this "PROOF-OF-BURN" method works well as an homage to the origins of Counterparty (XCP) itself, and that it results in a tightly-curated collection of Bitcoin War Bonds -themed propaganda masterworks by top artists in the space.
I look forward to seeing all of your submissions. As autocratic ruler over the Bitcoin War Bonds series, I plan to be hypercritical and favor physical artwork over low-effort attempts.
Not an artist? I hope collectors see this piece as worthy of their wallet as it will become harder and harder to acquire as burns happen, making it the first-largest named stamp with a built in rarity boosting mechanism – HODL until 99 artworks have been added and you can consider your BURN-SACRIFICE a 1/1, and verify by checking the token balance on Satoshi's genesis address.
More information revealed at start of token sale, DATE TBA.
Happy Birthday Satoshi!
