Description

This third and final round in the series features a
representation of the ‘Anonymous’ logo. Anonymous is
an infamous Internet ‘organization’ loosely composed
of various activist groups and hackers, some of them
colloquially known as ‘hacktivists’. The organization
is based on the idea of anonymity, and anyone can
essentially become ‘Anonymous’ by participating in its
actions. With no leadership structure, Anonymous is
de-centralized and operates on a peer-to-peer basis in
the same way as Bitcoin. In addition to this similarity,
both are associated with concepts of online anonymity
(or more accuratly, pseudonymity), and even actions
such as hacking. Due to these similarities and the fact
that they have been in the public radar at approximately
the same time, some have erroneously associated
Anonymous directly with Bitcoin. While it is likely that
some Anonymous participants are Bitcoin users, there
is no real connection between the two, as evidenced by
the fact that the Wikipedia page for Anonymous does
not even mention Bitcoin (at the time of writing). As
such, the ‘Anonymous’ design has no real relevance
to Bitcoin, though many will recognize it along with
Bitcoin as a ‘force’ that cannot be ignored in the current
digital realm.
