Artists Plan to Erect a Bronze Satoshi Nakamoto Statue in Budapest to Honor Bitcoin's Creator

Hungary plans to be the first country in the world to erect a statue of Satoshi Nakamoto, as a life-size bronze bust of Bitcoin’s creator will be displayed in Budapest. The bronze bust design is being constructed by two sculptors, Tamás Gilly and Réka Gergely.

A Reflective and Hooded Bronze Bust of Satoshi Nakamoto to be Erected in Budapest

A statue of Satoshi Nakamoto is being created to be erected in Budapest, Hungary when the project is complete. The creators of the bronze bust, Tamás Gilly and Réka Gergely, have recently revealed design plans for the famous cryptocurrency inventor’s statue.

Of course, not knowing who the anonymous Nakamoto is makes it very hard to sculpt an image of him, but that’s not stopping Gilly and Gergely.

According to the initial design sketches, Satoshi Nakamoto will be a hooded figure that references both the unknown “people of the internet” and Bitcoin’s mysterious creator. The artists and the individual who came up with the idea believe Nakamoto deserves a life-sized bust displayed for all to see.

The person who invoked the Satoshi statue idea, András Györfi, told the press that Nakamoto’s true identity does not matter.

In fact, below the sculpted hoodie, Nakamoto’s face will be reflective in order to reinforce the concept that “we are all Satoshi Nakamoto,” the creators note.

Györfi says that the mysterious cryptocurrency inventor made the world a better place and deserves a statue.

Györfi and the sculptors are not the first to come up with a Satoshi statue idea, as an initiative to erect a virtual monument of Satoshi Nakamoto in Kiev took place three years ago. The same year, the first monument dedicated to “Bitcoin and Blockchain” was constructed in the Slovenian city of Kranj.

Alongside this, Budapest already has a full-size statue of an anonymous character in a cloaked-hoodie as well. As pictured in the feature image of this article, there’s a bronze statue of “Anonymous” at the Vajdahunyad Castle in Budapest.
