Gemini is the second US Dollar crypto stablecoin to be integrated in banknote design. Gemini is a regulated cryptocurrency, launched by prominent crypto investors, the Winklevoss Twins. The twins feature on the front of the design.
The Next United States Dollar Stablecoin currency design.
This is a digital artwork, representing an uncut sheet of ‘Gemini Banknotes’. Gemini is the name of the US Dollar stablecoin launched by the Winklevoss Twins. This design uses Gemini as a starting point to a create a pataphysical artwork that is neither past nor present. It is an out-of-place-artifact, with the nostalgic design of US Gold certificates combined with the theme of the future of finance.
The frame design has been appropriated from existing US currency, whilst the portrait of the Winklevoss twins is made by hand, using similar techniques as genuine portrait engraving, found on banknotes. The piece intends to capture the ‘Golden Age of cryptocurrency’, filled with the same hope and promise of the Gold Rush era and the Roaring 1920s.
