WEBCOMIC: That’s the Blockchain Everyone’s Been Going On About

TL;DR: Comics legend Scott McCloud, known as the ‘Marshall McLuhan of comics’ and the ‘Aristotle of comics’ for his ability to explain any concept via illustrated narratives, takes readers through an informative, funny, and beautiful webcomic to help explain one of the most important documents in modern human history, the Bitcoin White Paper. In this vignette from our webcomic, the protagonist Alice learns about distributed ledgers, blockchain, and keys.

In each panel break, a new version of Bitcoin’s pseudonymous creator is presented. In one instance, he’s a wise scientist; in another, a typical dude. The many forms are a way for McCloud to lessen who Satoshi Nakamoto is as a personality, and rather to emphasize the ideas he, she, or they put forward.

To heighten the webcomic’s natural tension is to mirror that of what a noob experiences when deciphering what Bitcoin is: characters as Satoshi pop in and out when topics change, as a new aspect of digital money follows.

Every Coin is Accounted For
