More On: elon musk
The fact that Elon Musk is a huge fan of memes is not a secret. On Twitter, where he has more than 70 million followers, he posts them frequently. He made an interesting Web3 meme the other day and posted it on his blog.
Three panels make up the meme, which depicts the progression of the internet over time. This is Larry Page and Sergey Bring in the first Web1 panel. They are Google co-founders.
Our next Web2 panel features actor Jesse Eisenberg, best known for his role in the film "Social Network." Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, is the inspiration for the Oscar-winning film. Tim O'Reilly, the Silicon Valley oracle, first coined the term "Web2" in the early 2000s.
We can see Vitalik Buterin in the meme's final panel. He is one of the co-creators of the Ethereum virtual currency. In the past, Buterin's fashion sense has been discussed.
He's dressed as a bear in this particular photo. There was an Ethereum conference where this photo was taken. The event was held in Denver, Colorado, and was known as ETHDenver.
Ethereum has benefited from the crypto winter.
Many people have commented on Buterin's outfits on social media in the past few months. There is a running joke that this onesie costume marks the beginning of a new bear market cycle.
Even Vitalik Buterin admits that the current state of digital currencies may require another crypto winter to recover from the present. In his opinion, Ethereum would greatly benefit from a crypto-winter. There was a crypto winter in 2018 and since then, things have been going great for the sector.
Many people may view Musk's tweets as offensive. Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted a number of times about the kinds of technologies that people deride. It's also worth noting that he says that it's all just for the sake of marketing.
An old meme that Musk helped sell for $28,000
He posted a meme about Bitcoin and Ethereum prices in 2021. Bitcoin is shown at 69,000 and Ethereum is shown at 4,200 in the meme, which shows a couple lying on their bed and staring at the TV. Those prices are obviously fictitious; the meme was merely a nod to the meme craze in general.
Many people find Musk's memes annoying because he doesn't credit the people who made them. Musk's re-posting of the meme made the original creator, who was delighted, very happy indeed. Eva Beylin was her full name.
It was Beylin's admission that she was not responsible for the image's creation. She was inspired to create a meme after seeing someone else tweet about the price of bitcoin and ether.
Musk re-posted her tweet the same night she listed it on the Zora marketplace as NFT. It sold for $28,000 in just a few days. Beylin wanted to pay back the original meme's creator, so she gave them 20% of the sale price of the NFT.
