5 Weirdest Moments at the Bitcoin 2021 Conference in Miami - Decrypt

Bitcoin 2021, a two-day conference in Miami devoted to all things Bitcoin (and only Bitcoin), was the scene of some truly bizarre moments.

That tweet plunged the Bitcoin price by about 5%.

Musk later changed his profile picture to an anime woman with lasers for eyes—a meme sprouted by Bitcoiners who want the price to hit $100,000—but that didn’t noticeably impact Bitcoin’s price.

Undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather showed up to Bitcoin 2021 rocking a t-shirt that bore a logo for EthereumMax (EMAX)—which looks awfully a lot like the logo for Ethereum (ETH).

Anti-Big Tech activist Laura Loomer heckled Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey during his interview with Alex Gladstein, a Bitcoin advocate who heads strategy for the Human Rights Foundation.

Loomer confronted Dorsey for being a "giant hypocrite about censorship and freedom of speech” and "interfering" with people's rights—an apparent contradiction since Bitcoin is about freedom, as she later said in a YouTube video.

Later that month, Loomer handcuffed herself to the doors of Twitter's New York office, yelling, "Twitter is upholding sharia when they ban me for tweeting facts about sharia law.”.

According to an audio recording discovered by the blog AngryWhiteMen.org in March, Loomer said in a December 2017 interview that she’s “pro-white nationalism” and not opposed to an “ethnostate” for whites. Last month, Clubhouse also banned Loomerafter she had called herself “the most banned woman in the world,” only 12 hours after her first appearance in a chat room to talk about censorship.
