Registration notes: The tartan was created in recognition of the 21st century cryptocurrency revolution - specifically paying tribute to the first decentralised digital currency - bitcoin. Referred to as pure ‘Digital Gold’ the invention of Bitcoin and Blockchain Technology is said to be world-changing through the emergence of blockchain enabled Digital Assets (the future of currency worldwide), and the foundation layer of Web 3.0. Launched mysteriously in 2009 by an anonymous entity using the name Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin was released into the public domain on Sourceforge the web-based service for open source developers. Designed to reflect the colours of pure gold, the geometry and thread-count within the tartan reference both the limited number of 21 million bitcoins, as well as the timestamp of the genesis date (the creation of bitcoin, and mining of the first primordial block) on 3rd January 2009. It is predicted in time, due to mainstream adoption and the ongoing emergence of cryptocurrencies and digital assets, bitcoin will mature into a gold-like store of value - Digital Gold.
