Bitcoin Conference 2021 – held in Miami, Florida on June 4-5 to discuss Bitcoin – had its share of funny moments, which were as usual more like Miami Zoo than Miami conference.
Here are some of this year’s highlights!
#1 Max Keiser Had A Message For Musk
Following a couple of tweets that Elon contributed to the falling price of Bitcoin, many fans of Bitcoin weren’t all that happy about his antics.
Max Keiser started his session with Michael Saylor with a heartfelt and explicit message to Elon.
#2 Dogecoin Fan Storms The Stage
One of the fans of the cryptocurrency Dogecoin took the opportunity to create some mayhem, storming the stage to shed his business suit to reveal a danceworthy doge outfit.
Twitter user @maxotg, whose bio has been updated to “Yes I’m the Dogecoin dude”, took the responsibility – or credit, depending how you look at it – for the stunt.
#3 Floyd Mayweather Shills His Coin – EthereumMax
EthereumMax (EMAX) is a relatively small Ethereum-based cryptocurrency that sponsored Floyd Mayweather in his June 6 fight against YouTuber and boxer Logan Paul, since described in at least one report as “the easiest $150 million ever made”. Although it’s unknown whether the terms of Mayweather’s contract included showing up at the conference wearing a shirt promoting EMAX, he did – after which he changed into a shirt spruiking his own jewellery business.
#4 Dumpster Diving and Bolivar Baths
Venezuela has been blighted by hyperinflation for five years now, which has led many Venezuelans to adopt cryptocurrencies as hedges against it.
Cake Wallet, an open-source crypto wallet popular among Monero users, took the opportunity for a publicity stunt involving dumpster bins full of Venezuelan Bolivars.
The marketing campaign seems to have worked, judging by the number of fresh profile pics among attendees of this year’s conference.
Although the next crypto conference may go relatively smoothly, stunts such as these are no rare event at these gatherings – so stay tuned for the next round of pranks.
