We made Bitcoin Genesis Block mug to honor the first ever block in the Bitcoin blockchain. Known as the Block 0, it has been created by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009. What is interesting about the code is that it contains the message “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks”. That is the exact headline of an article appearing in the Sunday Times on January the 3rd, 2009.
Nakamoto never clearly explained the meaning of this message, but it’s speculated that it was one of the reasons behind the Bitcoin creation, to cut the middleman (the Banks) off. The Genesis block remains the mystery.
