Today, banknote artist Tom Badley releases the second NFT from the Deplorables series, featuring whistleblower Edward Snowden, exclusively available on
The Deplorables is a series of banknote designs that celebrate popular figures who reveal secrets and advocate privacy, transparency and truth. The first, 0.5 ETH, features Julian Assange, available at KnownOrigin. The designs feature a hand-engraved portrait and authentic banknote design techniques. https://dapp.knownorigin.io/edition/67350
The curious thing about these NFTs is that they’re banknote designs that are released at their ‘face value’ - in this case 1 ETH. In a limited edition of 20, each one has a unique serial number - just like a real banknote. And just like rare collectable banknotes, these NFTs will surely escalate beyond their face value.
Physical, paper versions of these digital designs are in production and will be available in very limited numbers. To read more about this work, and about Tom, head to bitcoin-banknote.com <https://www.bitcoin-banknote.com/2019/08/02/edward-snowden/>
