$PAPER

THE WORLD'S
FIRST PAPER-BACKED
CRYPTO TOKEN.

A celebration of art, cash & cryptocurrency.

$PAPER is a crypto token built on the Ethereum blockchain. It exits in the form of a fungible digital token, with a corresponding non-fungible digital artwork. Each digital artwork will also have a physically printed counterpart, making $PAPER a literal paper-backed cryptocurrency!

A first preview of the expected look of the first $PAPER release (physical version), featuring a portrait of Dorian Nakamoto.

WHAT IS $PAPER?

$PAPER is the creation of Tom Badley - artist and designer of money. Tom uses his unique experience of the banknote-printing industry to create art the uses the same processes and print quality as circulating cash. Tom has taken his rare design qualifications, of which only a handful of people have, and refined it into a unique niche in art, and now, the crypto art space.

Tom creates digital banknote designs that are symbolic of their sale price, creating a special relationship between crypto art, rarity on the blockchain, and his unique experience…

Tom also creates physical cash with the same print processes as banknote printing - often representative of his non-fungible token artwork. $PAPER links Tom’s scarce blockchain art with physical ‘cash artworks’ - printed on high quality banknote paper, and individually serial-numbered.

The content of this ‘cash’ is a celebration of cryptocurrency itself: each artwork will feature a key persona associated with cryptocurrency. Not only that, but the amount of $PAPER tied to each artwork is representative of Bitcoin’s price increase! …every time Bitcoin crosses a key price threshold, Tom will release a new $PAPER design.

The first in the $PAPER series os a 10,000 $PAPER banknote, celebrating Bitcoin's recent cross of $10,000 per coin. The design features Dorian Nakamoto - who has become a symbolic stand-in for Bitcoin’s mysterious creator. The next designs will be released when Bitcoin crosses 20k, 50k, and 100k!

The $PAPER token will be released in the form of NFT artworks, on the OpenSea platform, in a limited amount, each month. 300x 10,000 $PAPER NFTs will ultimately be created, with only 90x made available on the OpenSea platform. 200x will be donated to Roll, the facilitators of the $PAPER currency, and 10x will be held by the artist.

- $PAPER can be bought and collected in its NFT artwork form on the OpenSea platform.
