Prince Bitcoin

Prince Philip was in the news earlier when it turned out in March that he is a passionate Bitcoiner. He then spoke in a television interview about his interest and vision. “Not crypto, but Bitcoin. It’s only about Bitcoin. Bitcoin is freedom,” he stressed at the time.

The prince seems like an interesting choice as an ambassador for Bitcoin and the startup JAN3. Thanks to his knowledge of the financial sector, as well as the history of the former Yugoslavia, he seems to understand the importance and usefulness of Bitcoin. Moreover, as a member of a European royal family, he enjoys a certain prestige and moves in circles that are inaccessible to others.

The renowned and influential cryptographer Adam Back, CEO of Blockstream and former colleague of Mow, even called Prince Philip the ideal person for the position.


JAN3 is a relatively new Bitcoin company focused on Bitcoin adoption by nation states. The startup is developing the AQUA wallet and NFT marketplace Raretoshi and is also collaborating with El Salvador to provide the infrastructure of ‘Bitcoin City’. The name of the company refers to January 3, the date on which Satoshi Nakamoto launched the Bitcoin network.
