- Twitter’s new Laser eyes trend is spreading like wildfire among the community.
- Several high-profile people including Elon Musk and Michael Saylor joined this trend to indicate support.
- Trend involves morphing a set of laser eyes into a person’s profile picture.
Bitcoin may seem to many as an incredibly adventurous, albeit a daunting and certainly perplexing phenomenon for several new investors. The stock price of BTC breached the $55,000 mark and it is worthwhile to note that its popularity is in part attributed to the social media craze surrounding it. One new trend in a long series of trends in the Laser Eyes profile picture.
A new trend
Begun by two crypto-loyal accounts, Chairforce and GreZaj on Feb 16th. This trend was supposed to celebrate the occasion of BTC breaching the $50,000 mark with the hashtag #LaserRayUntil100K. To popularize this trend, the above-mentioned accounts started creating and circulating memes to improve their reach. The move appears to have worked out with several high- profile crypto enthusiasts jumping on the bandwagon within just 6 days of its release.
A person could show support by simply morphing his/her profile picture with a set of laser eyes, as it makes the person seem like a being of superior intellect. An interesting tweet by RC_BTC showed a picture of Hal Finey with laser eyes. He was the first person to receive Bitcoin from Satoshi Nakamoto. Hal Finey helped develop much of the code for the blockchain.
High Profile enthusiasm
Tesla CEO Elon Musk and MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor were quick to be receptive to the new craze. They took the opportunity to extend their support to the success of Bitcoin. They too incorporated the #LaserRayUntil100K trend in their Twitter profiles. Tesla’s decision to buy $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin and MicroStrategy’s move to convert its cash balance to BTC was seen by many as the turning point in Bitcoin’s historic stock market volatility and subsequent gains.
Other crypto-enthusiasts to lend support to this trend include prominent Samson Mow, Meltem Demirors, Max Keizer and the Wiklevoss twins among many others. Even American political figures Warren Davidson and Senator Cynthia Lummins were also quick to adopt the trend. Support of new-age politicians is crucial to legalize and regulate non-fiat currencies. Their participation in this trend seems to be a step in the right direction.
