The youngest son of the legendary Beatles, Sean Ono Lennon, appears to have officially joined the Bitcoin community. He has tagged digital currency in his Twitter bio and wants to support the “Laser Eyes” flashmob.
Lennon Jr joins the ranks of Bitcoin lovers
On Sean Ono's Twitter profile, the word “Bitcoin” has appeared in the bio section, and the profile photo of John Lennon's son now has “Laser Eyes,” in support of Twitter's recent trend among Bitcoin lovers.
The flashmob surfaced on Crypto Twitter on February 20, when the price of the world's flagship cryptocurrency surpassed $ 56.000.
That day, many Bitcoin supporters added the "laser eyes" effect to their Twitter profile pictures, including crypto influencers like Anthony Pompliano, CZ of Binance, Max Keizer and many more.
Many still have the effect on their images, which implies that they are waiting for Bitcoin to hit the whopping $ 100.000.
It is unclear who started the flashmob
Among the "titans" who recently tagged Bitcoin in their bio on Twitter is Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla (Tesla shares - ticker TSLA), SpaceX and The Boring Company.
Musk tagged Bitcoin in his Twitter bio on January 29, pushing BTC from the $ 32.000 level to around $ 38.500. However, he soon removed Bitcoin from his bio so as not to have a problem. After all, he has a publicly traded company with bitcoin holdings… quite an obvious conflict of interest.
Sean Lennon supports Gene Simmons tweets about Bitcoin and ADA
As reported by U.Today on February 20 (the day the flashmob began), Sean Ono Lennon tweeted in support of KISS frontman and his bassist, Gene Simmons, regarding the cryptocurrency tweets.
Simmons, the legend of the rock music world, had become a cryptocurrency enthusiast and investor. He tweeted that he bought Bitcoin and various popular altcoins, including XRP and the native Cardano ADA token.
Lennon criticized those who pointed the finger at Simmons for using cryptocurrencies and who doubted it was worth taking financial advice.
Lennon reminded critics that Simmons is famous for his business acumen and has a very high IQ, unlike them.
This is why Sean Lennon loves Bitcoin
As for Bitcoin itself, Sean Ono Lennon previously claimed that Bitcoin gave it more optimism in 2020 than anything else.
The world was hit hard by the pandemic last year, with numerous lockdowns around the world, economic recessions and, as a result, massive QE programs leading to more than $ 6 trillion being printed in the United States alone.
He said what makes Bitcoin interesting is that it is undetectable and allows you to easily travel with your private key to spend money anywhere.
