About this artwork

In the coinbase parameter of the Genesis block, Satoshi Nakamoto, along with the usual data, wrote a mysterious phrase: «The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks» This is the headline of an article from the front page of the British newspaper The Times dated January 3, 2009. It is about the planned financial assistance to British banks from the Treasury of Her Majesty's Treasury. The Chancellor is The Chancellor of the Exchequer, the official title of the ministerial position in the UK Cabinet responsible for economic and financial matters. What did Satoshi Nakamoto mean by this? About the vulnerability of the banking system and its dependence on the state? Or did he just want to show that the first block of Bitcoin was recorded on the blockchain no earlier than this date? Most likely, it's both.
