We need to build Bitcoin’s image to the public and make viral marketing possible. Obviously, it should be friendly and funny rather than dangerous and weird.

I’ve found this on Google:


"Bitcoin had been transformed from an anarachistic challenge to the financial status quo, to the crypto spawn of Satan, fuelled by cut-throat greed and delusions of avarice." - MatTheCat
"these people don't seem to want to stop till Bitcoin is completely destroyed and left like an old cum rag in the corner of the room." - ShroomsKit

Of course anarchy is a meme, but it's not as strongely associated to bitcoin as Alpaca socks are.

The unknown identity of satoshi and theories about who or what he is - is a meme ?

Possibly also bitcoins's law that all threads about bitcoin will inevitably lead to someone giving their opinion of what exactly bitcoin is.


Dont know if those qualify.

Neh, memes need to be a bit funny/silly/cheesy... the things you mention are not.

Do you even know what a meme is?

"A meme is a unit of social information"

Does this look like social information to anyone?

The Richard Dawkins definition is lovely and all, but...

...the goal is building bitcoin's image. Something that's a bit funny/silly/cheesy is more likely to achieve that goal.

Just start making images.

Memes are not created by marketers. Memes are accidentally spawned by people who manipulate and trade images.

I agree that this has acquired meme status - especially people pretending to know Satoshi and offering outlandish explanations for his absence.  There's some pretty funny stuff along these lines out there.   Tongue

If a spammer makes a thread on the forums whatever they are selling could be renamed to satoshi. "I have many satoshi to make your satoshi hard"

That sort of thing   Cheesy

Never expect to see a Legendary account could grave dig a thread like this from 2011.
I don't know what it liked back there in 2011, but now there are tons of memes about bitcoin, so this thread should rest in piece.
