We’ve heard of paintings that hide secret messages like some of Leonardo Da Vinci’s works, some have claimed Tupac hid messages about his murderer in his music.
Now, serial techie entrepreneur Anari Sengbe, the 1st person of african descent to create a cryptocurrency is now the 1st to hide bitcoin in music.
Just saying this is “cool” takes away from the significance of what this means for music. It took hundreds of years for Leonardo Da Vinci’s works to be decoded. Hiding bitcoin in music could give a song as long a shelf life as that of the works of historic artists.
Not to mention what this means for the music industry. The track recorded by Sengbe is called “SFAC” (shots from a commoner) and it is undeniably OWNED by Anari Sengbe, he has the private keys to the bitcoins in the track.
No ASCAP, No publisher, no record label, no 3rd party needed to give it value.
The music could lay dormant for years and it will still have value, as the bitcoins hidden in the music will grow in value.
This is a BIG deal and deserves a shower of accolades from artists and entrepreneurs alike.
“Conceptually, this isn’t just limited to music” says Sengbe,
“Any book being published in the bitcoin era, should have bitcoin hidden in various chapters. Even on wine, the wine label on the bottle should hide bitcoin, making that wine more valuable than want someone thinks it’s worth”
SFAC conceals the 24 mnemonic words to the private keys of a specific bitcoin wallet.
It’s open to the public to decode the complete keys, hence claiming the bitcoins stored in the wallet. Music fans can easily verify the balance wallet using the address tied to the song 1G4D1QLQDXfxds3omy6Sd3qnrcgBdviwLF
According to Sengbe, SFAC is a bars ridden crypto rap, “Some of the words to decode the wallet are outright on the track, while some are hidden in heavy bars. If you decode it, the bitcoins in the song is yours”, says Sengbe.
Sengbe, who describes himself as a techie rather than an rapper and claims that exercises like this represent a very unique way to bring art to the accepted norm of brilliance.
“Techies don’t get enough credit” says Sengbe, “our canvas is code. Our intellectual capital is disregarded when compared to musicians, painters and the like. I hope this helps change that. I recognize the power of music with SFAC”.
When asked what’s next on his list of crypto 1st’s, Sengbe responded…
“I actually want to put together a full crypto rap album, 9+ tracks that hide a wealth of bitcoin in the entire album”.
