Die ROBIN™ Währung auf der Ethereum-BlockchainThe ROBIN™ Currency on the Ethereum-blockchain

Ich freue mich sehr, dass mit der 257 ROBIN™-Note die ROBIN™-Währung nun auch als NFT – ein Non-Fungible Token (ERC-721) auf der Ethereum-Blockchain – verfügbar ist.

Das heisst:

Die ROBIN™-Münze und -Noten können nun auf der zweitgrößten und zukunftssichersten Blockchain gesichert werden: Selbst wenn jemand die ROBIN™-Münze oder -Note “kopieren” (fälschen) würde, ist nur das eine physische Produkt, das dem des Token-Inhabers entspricht, als das Original-ROBIN™ zertifiziert. (Dies macht die Investition in teurere, kleinere ROBIN™-Stückelungen sicherer.)

Wenn Sie ROBIN™ sicher kaufen möchten, ohne einen physischen ROBIN™-Schein einzutauschen, können Sie dies jetzt tun. Auf verschiedenen Marktplätzen für NFTs können Sie jetzt ein digitales Zertifikat kaufen, das Sie als Besitzer eines ROBIN™ ausweist, ohne dass Sie unbedingt die physische ROBIN™-Note kaufen müssen.

I am very happy, that starting with the 257 ROBIN™ note, the ROBIN™ currency is now also available as an NFT – a non-fungible token (ERC-721) on the Ethereum-blockchain.
This means, two things:

The ROBIN™ coin and notes can now be secured on the second largest and most future-proof blockchain: Even if someone were to “copy” (fake) the ROBIN™ coin or note, only the one physical product corresponding to the one of token holder is certified to be the original ROBIN™. (This makes investing in more expensive, smaller-denomination ROBIN™ safer.)

If you want to purchase ROBIN™ securely without the physical exchange of a ROBIN™ note, you can do so now. On different marketplaces for NFTs you can you now buy a digital certificate that you are the owner of a ROBIN™, without necessarily having to buy the physical ROBIN™ note.

SHOW ME THE MONEY – The Image of Finance

The failures in the global financial system that occurred in 2008 were experienced as a crisis because they were confusing and chaotic. The causes and implications of the event appeared to be too complex, too impenetrable and too surprising to be understood. The Queen herself – estimated to have lost £25 million in the crash – was reported to have asked, when visiting the London School of Economics that autumn, ‘if this crisis was so large’ then how ‘did everyone miss it?’ As the works presented in Show Me the Money: The Image of Finance, 1700 to the Present suggest, financial processes are often difficult to see not in spite, but precisely because, of their vast size. Finance – money, investment, credit, debt – is the air we breathe, and it is difficult, if not impossible, to get an objective view of an atmosphere that envelops us so completely.

The images, objects, narratives and artworks that make up this exhibition explore the ways in which finance has become a dazzlingly sophisticated and globally interconnected phenomenon that requires us to think anew about the ways in which we understand time and space: money is instant; it is everywhere and nowhere. Show Me the Money highlights the ways in which art and culture have allowed us to explore the increasingly abstract and self-referential nature of finance, the complexity of its operations that are virtually impossible for those on the outside to envisage. Yet the four locations of the exhibition also suggest ways in which this overarching narrative of finance is complicated by the particularities of place: finance may be everywhere, but its meanings and effects vary markedly from one site to another
