Bitcoin

The equation begins with identifying the anonymous person and / or group who is deemed the founder of bitcoin and the establishment of the creation of the peer-to-peer network to support the new cryptocurrency. The artist identifies the idea of decentralized digital currency, the ISO codes, the proof of work properties, as well as the historical contexts of its creation with the   

initial “Genesis Block”. The second part of the balanced equation continues the evolution of the Bitcoin from the first commercial use for the order of Papa John’s Pizza and the early proof of concept to the reality of black-market transactions which established the role of the bitcoin early in its conception to buy drugs, arms, porn and other illegal items on the black market. The artist also touches on the reality of the cap market for Bitcoin, the hacks that have affected its status, and pitfalls of Bitcoin, as well as the influence of Elon Musk’s tweets on its value. Financial demarcations are established with the date of the “Genesis Block”, the current Bitcoin market value, the lost bitcoin from online transactions to the % of increase from outside influences.

Shiba & Elon Musk

Dogecoin (DOGE) is a peer-to-peer, open-source cryptocurrency started by Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus. It is considered an altcoin and an almost sarcastic meme coin. Launched in Dec. 2013, Dogecoin has the image of a Shiba Inu dog as its logo. While it was created seemingly as a joke, Dogecoin's blockchain still has merit. Its underlying technology is derived from Litecoin.  

Notable features of Dogecoin, which uses a scrypt algorithm, are its low price and unlimited supply. Elon Musk has greatly impacted the stability of the Dogecoin price by remarking about its existence in tweets or on live television, Musk’s quote of Dogecoin “Going to the Moon” is a reference to the unlimited rise in value of the cryptocurrency.  Although dogecoin has witnessed several high-profile hacks, the market is still strong for this meme-driven currency, at one point rising over 7,000% in value.

Environmental Disaster

X-Press Pearl was a Singapore-registered Super Eco 2700–class container ship. On May 20, 2021, X-Press Pearl caught fire off the coast of Colombo, Sri Lanka.  The vessel, carrying over 1,486 containers, became fully engulfed in flames on May 27, 2021.  After burning for 12 days, the vessel sank on June 2, 2021. 

As it burned and sank, it spilled its cargo, including 378 tons of oil, 25 tons of nitric acid, and 171,000 pounds of low-density plastic pellets. It is currently responsible for the deaths of over 176 turtles, 20 dolphins, 4 whales, and thousands of fish. The incident was deemed the worst marine ecological disaster in Sri Lankan history, impacting this busy port city with not only chemical ruin that caused acid rains, but affected the lives of over 4,300 families with a temporary fishing ban that was caused by the non-biodegradable plastic pellet pollution.

Oil Spill

In February 2021, Limetree Bay Oil Refinery in the U.S. Virgin Islands reopened after being closed since 2018 over corroded pipes and bankruptcy issues.  When the refinery opened, multiple malfunctions and disasters followed. The explosion  sent multiple people to the hospital, also expelled an unaccountable amount of oil spray into the atmosphere. This oil  

mixed with the water droplets in the air and caused an unnatural phenomenon called oil rain. This oil rain came down on houses, cars, into water wells, animal feed supplies, water sources and caused countless contaminations across an impoverished area.  Limetree investment environmental authorities went door to door offering $2,000.00 USD as a waiver for the community members to not sue.  Those who did not take the money filed a class action lawsuit over the environmental disaster and temporarily shut down the refinery.  This meant hundreds of lost jobs in this minority neighborhood causing a ripple in the already unstable financial structure of this community.  Update: As of June 2021, the Limetree Bay facility has indefinitely shut down its St. Croix refinery.

History is Made

In June 2021, the Passamaquoddy Tribe in Maine were able to buy back Kuwesuwi Monihq, or Pine Island in a private sale. This island was stolen from the Passamaquoddy Tribe in 1820 when Maine officially changed the island’s name and (il)legally voided the 1794 treaty that granted this land to the tribe.  As of 2021, the Passamaquoddy had not set foot on the island, which was held  

in private hands or over 160 years. The island was considered sacred lands and contained many Native American burial grounds and ceremonial sites. This acquisition of the Kuwesuwi Monihq island is part of a greater conversation of Native American reappropriations and an international “buy-back” movement by the surviving generations of Native American Tribes across the world.

No Justice No Peace

The killing of 13-year-old Adam Toledo was riddled in controversy.  On March 29, 2021, Adam Toledo was shot and killed by the Chicago Police Department.  There were multiple versions of how the shooting and killing took place from “armed confrontation” to passive surrender. On April 15, 2021, the Chicago Police department released the body cam video of officer Eric  

Stillman, the person responsible for the shooting.  The video showed Adam’s hands up, after dropping his gun and turning toward the officer.  The debate surrounding this shooting stems from proper training vs, instinctual repercussions from situational awareness.  This case sparked protests in Chicago as well as around the world, in a post George Floyd narrative. It also highlighted the continual story of disproportionate police violence against Latinos and children of color.

Militancy

On May 13, 1985, after years of clashes and tensions between the police and MOVE, a communal, anti-government group, the police dropped a bomb from a helicopter onto the group’s rowhouse in a crowded, mostly Black neighborhood in West Philadelphia. Further investigations 

show the pelvic and femur bones of two of the adolescents killed in the bombing were being used by the Anthropology Department at a college to teach evolution. This discovery sparked uproar in the African American community of Philadelphia. The Health Commissioner and college admin resigned due to this disrespect.

“Bubba Wallace” brings to light the controversy of perceived racism in the NASCAR organization, focusing on the scandalous noose incident that Bubba Wallace experienced, and spotlights former President Donald Trump’s poignant remarks, while revealing other fascinating details of Wallace’s NASCAR career. This incident made headlines and NASCAR drivers banded with  

Wallace in a show of solidarity – then as the internal investigation uncovered additional facts, and the public began to see that it was a rush to judgement.  The rope  was simply a garage pull that had been there before Wallace moved into the garage that was assigned to him and his team. There are still conflicting versions of this incident from both sides.

Two Party History Lesson

"Make America Great Again" is shown to be first used by Alexander Wiley in the 76 US Congress in the 1940s. The concept behind the phrase was to encourage Americans to work together to improve the country's economy and infrastructure. In the years following Wiley's use of the 

phrase, it was adopted by both the Democratic and Republican party. Bill and Hillary Clinton used the phrase during their presidential campaigns, as did Barry Goldwater during his run for the Republican nomination. Donald Trump announced his candidacy for President and chose "Make America Great Again" as his campaign slogan. Trump's use of the phrase caught on with his supporters and became a rallying cry for his campaign. Since Trump's election, the phrase has been used by other politicians to drum up support for their own agendas.
