Bitcoin Halving: Show us your Naka•mojo•
by Rick Bartelink on January 1, 2024
Thanks to relentless building in 2023, Bitcoin is set up for a banner year in 2024. Late April will see the Bitcoin halving and, of course, the Nakamoto release for the Stacks layer. We will undoubtedly see more projects and protocols bring exciting new tools to builders and for our part, we're hosting events and activations galore all in the name of growing the Bitcoin economy.

To celebrate this exciting time and send a signal to the rest of the world, we're raising our Bitcoin flag higher than ever and inviting you to join us. Starting January 1, we're kicking off giveaways, content, and events steeped in Bitcoin spirit. And yes, orange!
Fly the Bitcoin flag and show us your Naka•mojo
Alright, sounds fun, but how does one 'fly the flag' or 'raise the ₿at signal'?

This one is up to you, there is no right way to join the fun. But, we do have a few suggestions based on what we've seen others do and will be doing ourselves.

Examples include:
  • Be like ALEX and add the 'Orange Block' in your X bio, name, or even better, both! You'll be in great company!
  • Maybe team Ordinals? You know that orange block well :)
  • Are you Lightning squad? Throw up the ⚡
  • On Twitter maybe too much? Use the #Bitcoin hashtag to bring up the ₿
  • Run a website? Give it a splash (or maybe more?) of orange like the banner at the top of this site or the newly orange page progress reading bar!
  • Texting, posting, etc? Show love with the 'orange heart'
What about Stacks?
Of course, the Stacks layer is getting in on the fun too, so wherever we here at the Stacks Foundation can put up a flag, we'll be doing so. This gives us an opportunity to test out working with more orange ahead of the Brand WG releasing a refresh soon. We also encourage others who own or contribute to Stacks-related properties to join as we embrace the orange throughout Bitcoin Halving.

Here are some of the ways we're planning to bring the Naka•mojo• ourselves:

  • We're running monthly giveaways with Stacks merch, STX20 & other prizes
  • We're bringing more orange to various places the community knows and loves (hint: like Twitter, stacks.co, and more!)
  • Builder stories: We'll be dropping a series on how various builders 'keep their Nakamojo" while leading the Bitcoin charge.
  • Host events under the banner of Building on Bitcoin, with the February 15 Building on Bitcoin virtual event being one of them.

We'll keep up the festivities through at least the Bitcoin halving, but as long as we're having fun and celebrating builders, we can keep it going.
