Current

Following Excavatorelevator 1’s format, this piece is artist Julia Tourianski’s vision of Bitcoin. It is inspired by Théodore Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa, and each animal on the raft symbolizes an aspect of Bitcoin’s current situation as follows: Platypus (unexpected), Bat (unprecedented), Giant Squid (doubted), Rats (global), Snow Leopard (hunted), Bear (prodigious), Hyena (stands up to the king), Wolf (misunderstood), Dingo (competitive), Bull (controversial), Albatross (ambitious), Lobster (potentially immortal), and Rhino (uncertainty). With all this on board, Julia remarked that “hopefully the raft will not sink, eh.”1
