Celebrity Music: Rap battle between Alexander Hamilton and Satoshi Nakamoto over Bitcoin

Celebrity Music:

This is pretty brilliant: A rap battle between Alexander Hamilton and Satoshi Nakamoto over the merits of centralized, government-fiat currency, versus decentralized cryptocurrencies.

It’s a note-perfect homage to the terrific “cabinet rap battles” in the musical Hamilton (worth listening to, #1 and #2).

Over at freeCodeCamp, Quincy Larson transcribed the lyrics:

[Satoshi Nakamoto]


Decentralized currency. Yes, I invented it.


I’m sure many governments wish they had prevented it


Their national cash is how they keep control,


But freedom to the people was my ultimate goal.


Am I a pseudonym? A group of men? It doesn’t even matter.


I invented Bitcoin cause fiat is a disaster.


A man from Japan or a damn hologram?


I’m the reason open season on crypto began.

[Alexander Hamilton]


Does anybody know what this crypto-thing means?


To me, sounds like the new Get Broke Quick scheme,


A bunch of fools from across the land


Investing in something they don’t even understand,


Buying Litecoin, Dash, Bitcoin Cash,


It’s all gonna crash, and be gone in a flash.


All this unsupported money’s an irrational prank,


And I’ll be laughing all the way to my National Bank.
