An animated digital original of the cover of the 2021 Young Rich issue of The Australian Financial Review Magazine, published on October 29, 2021. The annual Young Rich List, which compiles the wealth of the 100 richest Australians aged 40 and younger (and whose wealth must be self-made), was launched in 2003. The 2021 Young Rich List marks the first time that cryptocurrencies have been included as a form of wealth. The cover depicts Kain Warwick, founder of the Synthetix trading platform, who debuts on the List with an estimated fortune of $879 million. He was photographed for the cover by Paola & Murray in New York City. The surrounding artwork was inspired by the Memphis design influences apparent in the video clip for Dire Straits' 1985 song 'Money for Nothing'. The artwork and cover were created by Tim Beor and Sam Bennett.
