Crypto Community Trolls Ethereum For Not Getting Its Own Emoji
[NEWS BLOG]: Crypto Community Trolls Ethereum For Not Getting Its Own Emoji
The crypto community on Twitter has united once again in an epic troll, this time aimed at Ethereum. What began as a simple question as to why the second-largest cryptocurrency doesn’t have its own emoji turned into a hilarious movement that says the network is best described with the internet’s beloved poop emoji.
"A Serious Enquiry About Emojis Turns Into an Epic Troll"
The crypto community has never been one that turns away from a good troll, which is exactly what ensued after some unsuspecting members of the Ethereum community raised the question of emojis.
Namely, the recent addition of the Bitcoin emoji to social media platforms such as Twitter have been welcomed by the industry, with many saying something as trivial as an emoji actually legitimizes the cryptocurrency and brings it closer to mainstream adoption.
Therefore, it was no wonder that members of the Ethereum community began raising the question of an ETH emoji. With ETH 2.0 on the way and promises of a scalable, completely decentralized network, many believe this is the perfect time to boost its popularity with an emoji.
"Ethereum Never Got an Emoji"
In what appears to be a minor update, Twitter began automatically including the Bitcoin emoji every time someone would use the Bitcoin hashtag. This prompted the Ethereum community to accuse Twitter of having a strong Bitcoin bias which they believe was hurting other cryptocurrencies.
