Elon Musk has changed his Twitter display picture (DP), otherwise known as a profile photo, a character from a Japanese site wearing a Bitcoin dress and posed on the foreground of a $BTC logo. The character has "Triggered" eyes. Currently, there are no explanations as to why the CEO did it. Still, speculations point out to Musk targeting Bitcoin fans that blame his tweets for the leading cryptocurrency plummet.
Musk's Tweets Causes Bitcoin Drop
Recently, Bitcoin has dropped in market price and performance despite seeing a rise in its trends, particularly as it is on the road to recovery, following the drastic changes it suffered in the past months. The drop in performance of the leading cryptocurrency was due to Elon Musk's tweet about it, saying that Tesla has dropped Bitcoin use due to coal energy dependence.
Tesla is known to be a clean energy company, and that Musk is also an advocate for the environment, so dropping Bitcoin was a way to adhere to their beliefs and not something personal against Bitcoin. However, recent developments have pushed Bitcoin purists to think of Musk as the villain, especially with his increased support for Dogecoin.
Elon Musk Changes Twitter DP to 'Triggered' Crypto Woman
The red eyes edit on social media is a way to say "Triggeredt" (yes, with a 't' at the end) and mock people of their furious state and look, mostly used for most issues. It seems that this was also the case that Tesla CEO and cryptocurrency enthusiast, Elon Musk (@elonmusk), did for his Twitter account.
Pictures are still a thousand words in one, and this change in profile photo says many things, and Musk being the "King of Memes," might be a way to target the fans of the cryptocurrency. The recent performance of Bitcoin in the market crashed, and Musk was blamed by fans due to the meme he tweeted about a Linkin Park "break up meme," a broken heart emoji, and #Bitcoin.
Nooooo. I was just about 10% from breaking even and now the crypto market has crashed again. Why do you do this to us?— Deby Coles (@DebyColes) June 4, 2021
The subject in the photo is based on a Japanese Anime character that mascots for cryptocurrency, wearing a Bitcoin dress and has the logo of $BTC in the background, only replaced with the "red eyes."
What Does This Mean?
Musk is always fond of trolling people on the internet, and doing things without explanation even though people would either go crazy about it or have them develop theories as to his next move. However, one speculation is that the CEO was about the "triggered" Bitcoin fans who were affected by the price drop in the market, as brought by his latest tweet.
The CEO did not mean for the prices to go down, but his meme photo tweet still had a massive effect on the cryptocurrency, and in doing so, has triggered the downfall of Bitcoin in the market today. Currently, CoinMarketCap still lists Bitcoin as the top and leading cryptocurrency, with a $37,000 market price and a 4.33 percent downward trend in the past 24 hours.
