“The world in a coin. I don’t know whether I will get to see this dream come true in the near future. A good number of years will pass before we “invent” and build this dream, starting with this first symbolic step.
What I do know is that this dream will happen sometime in the future, because it is an inevitable and, indeed, quite obvious fact. I would like to dedicate this project to my children, Alessia, Leonardo, and Kamira-Mikhaela, and to Michael George, who will one day be able to hold this new currency in their very hands.
I also dedicate this project to all those who see beyond the barriers of today, and those who firmly believe in a brighter future. For everyone.”
