A new joke with the hashtag #LaserRayUntil100K # started 4 days ago on the social network Twitter and is now spreading rapidly. Followers of this trend intend to keep their profile picture with laser eyes until the price of Bitcoin reaches $ 100,000. Elon Musk is one of the initiators of this process.
to the the report Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who decided to invest $ 1.5 billion of his company budget in bitcoin earlier this year, has joined the weird Twitter trend. In this trend, Musk changed his Twitter profile picture to a cartoon woman with shiny red eyes wearing a bitcoin logo. He then tweeted:
Just for one day.
Cynthia Lummis, a U.S. senator and member of the Senate Banking Association who owns bitcoin, has joined the trend, turning her eyes to red laser eyes in her true profile.
One of the digital currency activists on Twitter, Nic Carter, also referred to this move by Lumis:
This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced in my 10 years on Twitter.
These people have joined a movement that has identified other Bitcoin fans, including Meltem Demirors, CEO of CoinShares, and Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy, all of whom are eye-catching. Brilliant and evil put on their profile.
Neeraj Agrawal, communications director at the Coin Center, thought in an interview:
The purpose of this trend is to emphasize the growing power of the Bitcoin network and to encourage people to join the network. [برای روشنترشدن جریان] Just imagine a character’s eyes sparkling in a movie.
According to the Know Your Meme website, which examines the history of Internet jokes, the first widespread use of shiny-eyed characters began after the computer game, which was released in 2010 under the name Mass Effect 2. شد. In this game, when the enemy was controlled by another creature, a yellow light flashed from his eyes. After the game became popular, people used Photoshop to edit their image with subtitles that were “under direct control” for several months; That was when the joke was born.
It took years for this joke to make its way into the Bitcoin world; But on February 15, Greg Zaj, who hosts a digital currency podcast, tweeted the hashtag #LaserRayUntil100K # using bitcoin rather than bitcoin, which is currently in the $ 55,000 range. The dollar trades at $ 100,000.
Magdalena Gronowska is one of the agents in the Quadriga digital currency exchange bankruptcy case, which also played a role in the establishment of the Bitcoin Investment Fund, 3iQ. Gronofska said in an interview:
The hashtag #LaserRayUntil100K # is for bitcoin fans who are supposed to work together to celebrate the price of bitcoin reaching $ 100,000. We also consider this price range.
Asked if he, too, would keep his Twitter profile photo with his laser-eyed eyes until the bitcoin reached $ 100,000, he said:
Yes for a few months.
However, given the 91% increase in the price of Bitcoin since the beginning of the year and at the current rate of this digital currency, reaching this price may take a long time.
