Bitcoin Laser Eyes Origins – Bitcoin Magazine: Bitcoin News, Articles, Charts and Guides

As Bitcoin 2021 concludes, Jack Mallers’ announcement that El Salvador intends to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender still resonates. Historical in scope, the announcement also comes with Thanks of the bitcoin community of the president of the country. One way of this recognition is to laser my eyes, a meme created by myself. I think this would be a good time to take a look at the origins of the laser eyes, # LaserRayUntil100K, and what led to the meme.

It all started when I was a Bitcoin Pleb with less than 300 followers. In April 2020, I found Bitcoin Twitter and joined the Pleb Army. I am Bitcoin Class of 2018 myself, but did not know that Bitcoin Twitter existed at the time, let alone that it is populated by so many amazing people. The first account I fell in love with on Twitter was American HODL. A toxic Bitcoin maximalist who would yell nonsense and scams, have extremely insightful perspectives, and most importantly, tweet perfect shitty posts. A shitty position defined by Urban dictionary is “any content on the Internet whose humor stems from its surreal nature and / or lack of a clear context. The humor of a meme comes from its repeatability, a shitpost is funny simply because it is not a predictable repetition of an existing form.” So basically saying random things to be fun and encourage engagement from your community and / or haters. I felt that American HODL was absolutely the bullshit poster of the king on Bitcoin Twitter and I loved him for it.
