A Crypto Unicorn Is Born

Bitcoin + Unicorns + Crypto Comics = Instant Fun

For those not familiar with Southern California, I present a typical scene of our culture. Notice the colorful yet untamed creatures scheming for market domination. Marvel at the entrepreneurial ingenuity of these beautiful, sun-baked minds. Among the breathtaking backdrop of the rolling hills, catch that wild start-up spirit of boldness and natural ingenuity... or not.

But seriously, this crypto-art comic strip pokes fun at some of the sillier things going on in the never-boring cryptocurrency space. Consider this rare digital art as the lighter side of bitcoin and initial coin offerings (ICOs). If you are not sure what cryptocurrency or ICOs are, think bitcoin mutations gone wild--some are good, some are not. And if you are still not sure what any of that means, you should remain able to chuckle at the colorful wonders of Unicorn Coin!

You can buy this rare digital art on MakersPlace using Ethereum or a Credit Card. It is issued in a limited edition of only 10 copies.

My ultra-talented wife, Denise Chiappetta colored portions of this comic, and it just goes to show how much of a great colorist she is. Of course, I am happily married to this dear woman, so I might be slightly biased. She is actually good at whatever she puts her mind to do. Over the years she has colored hundreds of my comics excellently.

Parody of a Crypto Logo:

While this cartoon strip is obviously a parody, I do believe that having a solid logo plays a tiny part in whether or not a cryptocurrency will grow and achieve mass adoption. It must be a psychological thing, especially because all cryptos are digital; there is little tangibility so everything needs an image to gravitate towards. Consider all the various logos that stay in our minds throughout our lifetime; they must be communicating something on a subconscious level.

As for Unicorn Coin... well, communicating a few laughs is about all that it has in its favor. For the extra-curious art historians, readers can also see an early black and white version of this artwork in print on the pages of my giant-sized comic book, Silly Daddy Forever!

More Cryptocurrency Comics Needed:

I do understand that a number of my long-time Silly Daddy readers might remain perplexed at the concept of cryptocurrency and crypto-collectibles. Indeed, for many folks, this is strange, heavy, exciting, weird, and a little scary. It brings up a lot of strong emotion in people. To capitalize on these opportunities, and help people process these lightning-fast financial changes, more comics about Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, ICO drama, government regulations, and blockchain technology would go a long way in helping the rest of the population know the full scope of groundbreaking (as well as heartbreaking) things happening in the art-on-the-blockchain space.

To answer that call, I do hope you enjoy my funny comic strip view into this ever-growing economic paradigm shift. The monetary system is changing literally under our noses, and therefore we might as well have a few good laughs about it through the mighty medium of comics. While we educate ourselves about new dreams, nightmares, and other dramatics coming true in altcoin adventures, let's also laugh at the days to come with some comics. Cue up the crypto-cartoon unicorns.
