According to foreign media reports, the 2021 Bitcoin Conference was recently held in the city of Miami, U.S. The conference was billed as the largest cryptocurrency event in history, attracting 12,000 participants. The conference was originally planned to be held in Los Angeles, but was moved to the city of Miami, USA, due to stricter restrictions in California against the new crown virus.
The crypto community has been known for its openness, but this conference seems to be more of a showcase for bitcoin celebrities. According to sources, there was a rule at the conference that no discussion of any cryptocurrency other than bitcoin, not even ethereum, was allowed. For this reason, Floyd Mayweather, a five-division championship gold belt, had to be cryptic in his main stage speech, “”Everyone in the crypto world is competing with each other, and I think everyone should be able to choose what they want to choose , and work with like-minded people to accomplish their dreams, and I believe that one day there will be another cryptocurrency with the same volume as Bitcoin.”
On Saturday, also at the Miami Bitcoin Conference, a Dogcoin supporter rushed the stage during a guest speaker, stripped off his jacket to reveal a t-shirt with Doge’s avatar to show his support for Dogcoin, and was eventually forcibly removed by security. This person is a youtube celebrity who has managed to make a name for himself in the Dogcoin community through this move, adding to the hype of this “show” conference. Some users of the ethereum community were disappointed by the ugliness of the Bitcoin conference, saying, “After this conference, we’re going to have a 3-year bear market, and we deserve it.” Some added, “I think it’s 10 years.
Once again, it was the main stage talk show between Bitcoin analysts Max Keiser and Michel Saylor that sparked public disgust, with Max Keiser starting the show with an almost hysterical rant, “We’re not selling [Bitcoin], fxxk Elon. Musk”. The Miami Bitcoin conference was more of a showcase for asses than a cryptocurrency event, as evidenced by the ban on all speech related to non-bitcoin cryptocurrencies. The message with the highest number of likes underneath the tweet may also be expressing the voice of the vast majority of neutrals, “Ichiro has made a lot of great companies, created a lot of jobs, forged a legend and raised 4 kids. I don’t agree with spreading hate and insults, and if Yilong only had good things to say about the cryptocurrency market, the entire crypto community would surely only praise him. I do wish Ichiryu would tweet more often.”
After watching the video, people who are not related to the crypto community generally thought it was a “frenzy”.
Anthony Sassano, a celebrity in the ethereum community, directly compared the conference to a Herbalife marketing conference.
What’s most surprising is that some of the top political brass from smaller countries have come to rub it in at the Miami Bitcoin Conference. Paraguayan congressman Carlitos Rejala tweeted, “As I was saying a long time ago, our country needs to go hand in hand with the new generation. This moment has come, and this is our moment. This week we will start an important project that will allow Paraguay to innovate and put Paraguay at the forefront of the world. A real to the moon”. The tweet ended with Bitcoin and Paypal hashtags, as well as a photo of a laser eye associated with the crypto community Meme.
And on Saturday the president of the Republic of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele, has changed the Twitter avatar to a laser eye. And he claims to be submitting a bill to make Bitcoin legal tender (Legal Tender) in the country.
For a politician, what matters is prestige, whether one can achieve one’s agenda is another matter. And as a small country without so much international public opinion baggage, even the head of state does not have a problem with the means as long as he can gain enough prestige. And this time, both technically and economically impossible to achieve the “verbal check” of the hype, from the “never miss a hype opportunity” Sun has entered, enough to see its impact.
