Smashtoshi is bringing together 128 of the world’s best digital artists to celebrate and articulate the history of Bitcoin’s meteoric rise through original artworks. Two years in the making, we aspire to spark interest, provoke debate and shine a light on the fascinating story behind the most exciting innovation of our era.
Charting the pivotal moments in Bitcoin history from the Cypherpunks manifesto to its post-Financial Crisis genesis in 2009 and beyond, we are creating the definitive and iconic origin story of Bitcoin that will go down in history
‘Bit’ is an ultra-premium limited-edition physical art book showcasing the 128 unique art pieces. An app accompanies the book to visually augment the art and display the story behind each piece. Buyers can customise their book and box at the time of purchase to make it unique to them (e.g. choosing their favourite leather type and colour).
‘Bit’ is complemented by an everlasting digital experience where thoroughly researched articles support each artwork. Revealing the foundational events and inside stories, the best writers and thinkers, offer a unique educational resource to millions of readers worldwide.
This will live indefinitely on historyofbitcoin.io, free to all and available in multiple-languages.

Our artists are curated for their innate talent, dedication and commitment to quality and free expression. These include some of the world’s biggest names in digital art and the ‘next big things’.
