    So I made a retro version of the logo. Cause digital currency is totes 1980's cyberpunk. Whole new respect for pixel artists. Holy fuck. This is my first attempt at pixel art, hopefully it turned out okay. I've been looking at it for too long, I can't really tell at this point. Click to view:

    Two PNG's, one expanded (above) and the original. With the original, keep in mind I did this a pixel at a time, so it is really tiny. If you want to resize either for something, be sure to turn any anti-aliasing/filtering/blurring off so the pixels will retain their sharp edges.

    EDIT: I'm gonna be adding buttons as I make them to this thread. First up is something designed for medium/dark backgrounds. Lots more to come. Let me know what you think, I realize pixel art is kind of a niche aesthetic. If you have any requests for color schemes or whatever, let me know. And suggestions, of course!
    DECRED Accepted for dark bg 2x.png (click for full view, else it looks a bit blurry)
    DECRED Accepted for light bg 2x.png (for lighter background colors)


    I plan to make some wallpapers with different background colors, but wanted to go ahead and post this as a resource.

    Thanks! I'll post here as soon as I get a couple done in the next couple days. And yeah, quite a bit different from the way I normally draw. seems like it'd be fun once you get used to it, tho!
