The painting “Bitcoin Princess” began life as a social media meme—a cartoon mashed up with ironic commentary designed for mass consumption on Twitter or Instagram. In the illustration, a knight is shielding a princess from a raging crowd. It’s a standard enough scene that could be cropped from a zillion anime movies or manga comic books. But this knight has the word “me” pasted onto his tower shield, the princess is labeled “bitcoin” and the crowd has been dubbed “Nobel Prize winning economists.”
Behold the brave knight defending the future of decentralized finance from a horde of fiat unbelievers!
