The group of athletes, called “Team Satoshi”, are inspired by Vitus Zeller, the founder of “Tour de Satoshi” who writes in a blog post,
“All over the globe universal human rights are under attack. Journalism is under attack… freedom of opinion and information are under attack…
I truly believe in a world of an open, global, neutral, censorship-resistant and decentralized currency for the people.
We advocate for human rights, freedom of transaction, freedom of opinion and freedom of information as well as for the right of privacy.”
