Deconstruct-Do

Do, as a suffix in Japanese, is a philosophy of following a path.

We are all on an empowering path of learning bitcoin, lightning, and other technologies with similar principles.

This is a journey to develop visual and written elements you can use to explain bitcoin in workshops, diagrams, presentations, and in-app.

Antidote 2 Fear

WIP October - December

Participating in the Bitcoin Design Community Designathon & Legends of Lightning Tournament

Bitcoin has been built on a strong principled foundation with positive incentives, yet many of the stories and sometimes the experiences with bitcoin usage are frightening.

In the spirit of the upcoming White Paper birthday and Halloween, this project wants to help dispel fears and celebrate what makes bitcoin magic in three different ways:

I.

Spooky Stories

Spooky Stories

Compare and contrast qualities of bitcoin vs. current financial systems vs. PoS, through Halloween cultural references.

Create: conceptual art & stories

II.

Mind Control Remedy

Spooky Stories

Bitcoin's organic adoption magic rests in how its community encourages open learning and critical thinking. Sharing bitcoin's concepts should not be so scary. How can we simplify the process and make it more friendly?

Create:

  • An open library of visuals, written elements, and diagrams, that anyone can customize for presentations, workshops, and diagrams

III.

Dark Spell Removal

Spooky Stories

Error messages may be one of the scariest moments when navigating through an app. How can we help make people feel empowered instead of afraid of what pops on their screen?

Create: A list of error message options written with different tones so product makers may find one that fits their brand's personality.
