When the hashtag #eth began to automatically display the Ethiopian flag as the Ethereum ‘logo,’ crypto and Twitter were united in amusement.
Given Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s fondness for Bitcoin and the fact that Bitcoin has its own Twitter emblem, many speculated that he was implicitly mocking Ethereum (ETH).
After all, he’s a fervent Bitcoin (BTC) maximalist who has frequently asserted that Bitcoin would become the internet’s native currency and has refused to contemplate buying ETH and other altcoins.
The founder of Twitter certainly saw the funny side of things, tweeting “#eth,” which got the attention of the official Olympic account, which said it was “great to see Jack and the crypto community supporting the #ETH athletes!”
Pages like “Bitcoin Meme Hub” got in on the joke by posting fictitious Tweets from Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, claiming that “this is not funny Jack.”
“Project Mano” was a group of Ethiopian businesspeople encouraging their government to consider mining and hoarding BTC. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also used the Ethiopian flag to promote Bitcoin earlier this year.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Ark Invest CEO Cathie Wood talked at “The B Word” this week. Bitcoin “creates world peace or helps create world peace,” Dorsey said.
