Bitcoin Magazine: Quiet Bitcoin Revolution: The New Renaissance

This piece is an opinion editorial written by Stefan Dzeparoski, who is a creative producer and international filmmaker who has won multiple awards.

The essay titled "A Quest for Social Truth" that can be found in Allen Farrington and Sacha Meyers' book "Bitcoin is Venice" was the source of inspiration for this piece.

"It is imperative that you comprehend that the majority of these individuals are not yet prepared to be disconnected. And a significant portion of them are so passive and helplessly reliant on the system that they are willing to fight to preserve it. The name Morpheus

In the Western civilization, a profound shift in consciousness took place between the 14th and 17th centuries. The Renaissance is the name given to this transition in history. During this time period, the role of the church as a go-between in the lives of citizens began to diminish to the point that it was eventually eliminated. The church served as the center of authority in all spheres, including the political, the financial, and the social. During the Renaissance period, a social class composed primarily of merchants rose to become the preeminent one. This class did not require the services of a middleman in order to guide their day-to-day life and to prescribe how the wealth was distributed. The first sign of decentralized money was seen in the form of double-entry bookkeeping, which was first implemented by merchants. By using a printing press, merchants were also among the first to pioneer decentralized forms of communication. The students in this session gained an understanding of the value of a variety of assets. The legend of the Medici family was established not through the family's investments in banking and commerce, but rather through the family's deliberate investments in intangible cultural endeavors. The arts and its practitioners emerged as an independent source of value, untethered to any particular nation, political order, or ideological framework. The end result of all of this will eventually be the separation of church and state.

We are all members of a different church as of today, and that church is the church of the fiat bank.

The central bank is the most powerful institution in the world today. Bitcoin, on the other hand, is a store of value that is not related to any nation, political organization, or ideological framework. This presents a challenge.

It is time that we take a closer look at the connection between art and bitcoin in order for us to conceive of and create a new reality through Bitcoin. Bitcoin gives artists the ability to create a new version of reality that is closely linked to a new method of establishing value. This presents a unique challenge for artists. Through the creation of each piece of art, artists are eventually conducting research into and reshaping aspects of personal and collective identity. Every work of art gives us the opportunity to reimagine the world. Artists and bitcoin converge at this point, which is both a point of reexamination and re-creation. The artwork that was created during the time of the Medici is still around, and it continues to be thrilling, engaging, and inspirational. Through its ability to blur the lines between space and time, art is continually pushing the limits of what is possible in the passage of time. The blockchain that underpins Bitcoin is an invention in its own right. The Medici family made their investments in a form of value that had the potential to outlast the confines of both time and place. The ledger of knowledge, education, information, and value has evolved into the medium of art. By virtue of the fact that they are creators in the modern day, artists have the wonderful chance, made possible by bitcoin, to found their own "private" Medici family. Artists are in a unique position to steer a different sort of revolution and provide the impetus for the split of financial and political power. Never attaining true independence is impossible for creative individuals so long as their livelihoods are inextricably linked to the political, ideological, and financial systems of their respective nations.

Bitcoin is all about decentralization and freedom at its core. It was conceived in the anarchy that followed the worldwide financial crisis of 2008. Because Bitcoin is so persistently individualistic and libertarian, it aspires to protect users' rights to freely store value and conduct business with one another. Bitcoin has the potential to become the savior of artists' right to self-determination.

Bitcoin stands to gain just as much if not more from the participation of artists as they do from the education they receive and the connections they make within the Bitcoin community. During the Renaissance period, it was the artists who were responsible for disseminating information and providing a new point of view on an evolving consciousness. Allow musicians, performers, video artists, moviemakers, and digital artists to act as Bitcoin's messengers and raise knowledge about the cryptocurre through the creation of music, performances, video art, and digital art. Let us connect Bitcoin with art. There is no limit to the possibilities. Bitcoin seems like it would be a perfect fit for artists in Canada, or artists anywhere else in the globe for that matter. Skepticism and an insufficient quantity of trustworthy education, however, are prohibiting artists from directly participating. My expectation is that this piece will be able to navigate its way across the varied artistic landscape that exists in Canada. to pique their interest in the independence of artistic identity, which may ultimately lead to an improvement in their quality of life.

Bitcoin has the capacity to deliver a sense of long-term security to a social and economic system that routinely undermines and ignores the financial stability of artists. This sense of security might be brought about by bitcoin in the long term. Bitcoin has the potential to protect the financial independence of creative people. It is possible for it to function as a protection for the mental health and psychological power of an artist. Last but not least, the cryptocurrency known as bitcoin may provide artists a chance at financial success that they have probably never had before. In current age of capitalism, there is little opportunity for artists to succeed, and the waning influence of globalization is having an even more negative impact on the freedoms enjoyed by artists. Being dependent on a variety of centralized financial sources, such as arts councils, private or state-run foundations, sponsors, and donors, means that artists are compelled to satisfy a desirable political frame of ideas in order to continue receiving funding, even if they do not adhere to this ideology. This is the case despite the fact that some of these centralized financial sources are run by the government. Artists are at danger of losing their identity, sense of integrity, and purpose as a result of the unsustainable dependent on a corrupt and manipulative fiat currency system.

Words are powerful tools. They alter and direct the thinking, which is what ultimately forms the reality. Too much time has been spent conducting artistic practice from the position of absolute existential dearth. Art now finds itself in the precarious position of having to provide never-ending justifications for its own existence. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the misleading and self-destructive question "Who needs artists?" seems to have legitimacy in people's minds. Has the question, "Who needs another used vehicle dealership?" ever been asked with such zeal and determination to demonstrate that it is not required to do so?

It is no longer acceptable for society to attempt to damage an artist's sense of identity by undermining the artist's ability to maintain financial autonomy. Bitcoin puts an end to this issue.

If we consider bitcoin to be a digital bearer asset that has an absolute scarcity, then follows that an artist's portion in the monetary network cannot be diluted through the production of additional money if the artist possesses bitcoin. The artists will eventually realize that with the passage of time, their money and ability to make purchases can increase.

Bitcoin is more than just a reliable form of currency; it also represents freedom and a constructive worldview. There will never be more than 21 million bitcoin in circulation. Bitcoin is an idea in and of itself. It is both a concept and a proposition for various society systems, in which the artist occupies a central position with authority and creative thought at the forefront of their practice. Bitcoin represents not just a change in the financial order but also a positive shift in the awareness of people all around the world. Within the framework of bitcoin, regulations and some governing principles have been established to ensure that all participants are treated fairly and have the same amount of freedom. However, Bitcoin is not governed by anyone. Bitcoin, much like art, is based on the ideas of thinking in the long term, being patient, and not giving up. At first glance, it might not seem like there is much of a connection between art and bitcoin, but the two are actually tightly intertwined with one another.

Let's make a connection between art and bitcoin. The relationship that exists between bitcoin and the arts ought to serve as the cornerstone of the next world. Bitcoin has the ability to assist artists, and artists have the ability to increase awareness about bitcoin. Together, they will challenge the stranglehold that the fiat currency has on free thought and creativity.
