We've all heard of the cryptocurrency named after a dog, but a dog named after a cryptocurrency? In a move very few people would have cared to anticipate, a Redditor has named his dog Bitcoin, after the cryptocurrency—Bitcoin.
Taking to Reddit yesterday evening, one crypto aficionado posteda picture holding Bitcoin (the dog, not the digital asset—see it’s confusing already). Seeing the opportunity for a few mediocre puns, a myriad of Reddit's finest came out in full form to gawk, praise, and wisecrack in equal measure.
"Do you keep Bitcoin on chain or off chain?" wrote a technologically savvy Redditor.
"Watch out for large dumps," replied another, presumably a crypto trader.
Bitcoin isn't the first dog to be named after the pioneering cryptocurrency. In fact, since the 2017 bull run, there seems to have been a spike in doggos dubbed Bitcoin.
"My grandad has named the new dog Bitcoin. F**KING BITCOIN. Are you having a laugh," wrote an outraged Twitteratti in early 2018.
My grandad has named the new dog Bitcoin. FUCKING BITCOIN. Are you having a laugh
