About This Piece
Virtual Virtual Coins is a series of pieces generated by artificial intelligence which was learned all existing cryptocurrencies and legal-currencies, and it is a part of his project, NewOrder/SirenCall?.
It consists of broken signs of currency=uncertain patterns as future coins, that were picked up from large quantity generated images by him.
The word, “Virtual Currency==仮想 通貨”, is often used in the news media and became a legal term in Japan. But the word is just a mistake because it makes an impression that “Real Currency exists” even though the all currencies are virtual from the beginning. And this word was defined by central banks and national governments, and it is propaganda to cause fictitious conflict which “The existing legal currency is the Real Currency==Right Currency” but “The others are not Real even if they function as currency”.
He introduced this strange situation as one of the inspirations, then really generated “Virtual Currency” from “Virtual Currency they say”.
