Banknotes Pixel Art: Pictures Worth a Thousand Bits

by Lambert Varias

You’ve probably heard of the controversial Bitcoin, a digitally generated peer-to-peer currency. Some people think it’s a great idea, while some think it’s inherently worthless and is doomed to fail. All I know is that these pixel art banknotes are a great fit for Bitcoin.

I bet Dhalsim knows how to stretch his dollar, amirite? These banknotes were created by members of Pixel Joint as entries to one of the website’s weekly contests. The top prize went to Stefan Bogdanovic aka Mrmo Taurus for his Space Invaders-themed currency, which he called 40 Credits:

I had to enlarge each piece from their original 200 x 100 resolution to 600 x 300, so any degradation in quality is my fault. Check out the gallery for more:

You don’t have to pay a cent to view the other entries on Pixel Joint. I wish someone made an “It’s Over 9000” dollar bill. Or a Mushroom Kingdom gold coin – save up a hundred and you get an extra life! Or Hyrulean Rupees. Man, I should’ve joined the contest.
