Everyone loves crypto memes. They are entertaining and a great way to poke fun at almost anyone and anything. Even the serious world of investing and finance isn’t devoid of their presence. In fact, Memes have played a huge role in popularising Cryptocurrencies, some even becoming a part of the mainstream zeitgeist.
We have compiled a list of the top 10 crypto memes because all work and no play make Jack a dull investor. Happy reading…
10. What everyone thinks about crypto-traders
The beauty of crypto is that everyone- from haters to supporters to people who have just heard the name- has their opinion about it. This one is an oldie but is still gold, or maybe bitcoin.
9. HODL that thought!
HODL or Hold On for Dear Life is a term given to long-term investors who buy and hold their positions regardless of the price. Hodling originated from a typo and has become a mantra for most bitcoin investors.
8. Stack them sats, miner!
The smallest unit of Bitcoin is a Satoshi. It is equivalent to 100 millionth of a Bitcoin. Similar to any other currency, sets of small units can be converted into a significant amount. This ‘Keep Calm…’ meme is using the famous meme template to advise people to stack satoshis.
7. Dollars, anyone? Nah, we prefer Bitcoin
This gem is from the recent lot and talks about Bitcoin’s increasing value compared to the US Dollar. BTC has been on the rise recently, while multiple stimulus packages and other factors have pushed the dollar into a downward spiral. In fact, in a recent interview, Kraken CEO Jesse Powell predicted 1 Bitcoin would be worth a Lamborghini by this year’s end. Good going, crypto-verse.
6. Bitcoin and cryptos are a scam. Sure, why not! Grapes, Mr. Fox?
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have their fair share of haters. People have always opposed anything disruptive and new. This meme pokes fun at one of the most used arguments against Bitcoin.
5. Are you the chosen one?
In the Matrix Trilogy, Neo is asked to choose between the red and the blue pill. Taking the red pill is waking up to the truth that his entire reality is fake. In the crypto world, the red pill means waking up to the fact that the future of money is digital, and as such, bitcoin and other cryptos are here to stay.
4. Love it or hate it, but you will talk about crypto
As mentioned, cryptocurrencies have a lot of naysayers. However, it is impossible not to talk about bitcoins, especially with the growth that the crypto market has seen. This meme, at the expense of Mr. Jamie Dimon, highlights this fact.
3. Sensei Bitcoin
Bitcoin was the first of the cryptocurrencies and is currently the flagship crypto. In a way, it is the pioneer that made the path easier for other cryptocurrencies. In terms of the famous cartoon characters Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Bitcoin is Master Splinter.
2. Why not invest in stocks so that we can charge you!
Orthodox investors and crypto-haters would rather you invest in stocks so that they can charge you a fee. The funny thing is that the arguments made against crypto apply to stocks as well. Oh, Irony, how sweet are thou!! This comic from the joy of tech is right on point.
1. The image that made Bitcoin famous
This may not seem like your regular crypto meme, but its importance lies in what it achieved. In 2013, a Reddit user created a thread inviting people to submit ideas for a Reddit ad for /r/bitcoin. /u/mavensbot created this image using MS paint and it went on to become the most popular Reddit ad ever. It also played a key role in pushing Bitcoin prices over $1000.
This is our take on memes. Whatever way people’s investing interests sway, whether they hate bitcoin or love it, worship bitcoin, or show a Cross to it, it is impossible to deny that it is here to stay. Whether one invests in it or not is their decision, but everyone can enjoy these memes.
