You Can Buy A Backpack Featuring The Bitcoin Genesis Block
It can be tough to demonstrate your allegiance to cryptocurrencies. You can’t go around flashing your private keys to everyone. What you can do, however, is buy a backpack featuring the bitcoin genesis block imprinted on the outside.
Yes, thanks to a company called BitcoinShirt, crypto fans can now purchase a backpack featuring the very first bitcoin block in the bitcoin blockchain – the Bitcoin Genesis block. Originally mined by Satoshi Nakamoto on January 3, 2009, the block features a headline from the London Times that day. That headline famously declares, “Chancellor on Brink of Second Bailout for Banks.” The rest of the bag, meanwhile, features the hexadecimal code you can find in any bitcoin block.
The bag itself, according to reviewers at TechCrunch that got their hands on it, is “fairly large” and “fairly standard.”
“There is little unique about the backpack itself – it’s a solid piece made of 100% polyester and includes ergonomically designed straps and a secret pocket.”
The core unique feature of the bag, of course, is the bitcoin genesis block. The hexadecimal code is highlighted in green, Matrix-style text, while the London Times headline is highlighted with orange text.
There’s also a hidden surprise inside the backpack: the inside pocket features the abstract paragraph from Satoshi Nakamoto’s original bitcoin whitepaper. The inside pocket is designed to fit a 15” laptop.
BitcoinShirt makes and sells a number of other bitcoin-related products. The online store accepts multiple cryptocurrencies. You can buy shirts, hats, posters, mugs, phone cases, and more using bitcoin and 30+ altcoins.
In addition to buying a bitcoin genesis block backpack, for example, you can purchase a t-shirt with the bitcoin genesis block printed on it. The bitcoin genesis block backpack is available for purchase online today at a price of $49.99.
