Today’s Best April Fools’ Jokes in Crypto – BeInCrypto

April Fool’s Day was not lost on the cryptocurrency community. Jokes poured in from near and far as market participants welcomed some levity during an otherwise frightening time.

If you weren’t careful, it was simple to get caught up in the pranks and truly believe that CoinMarketCap had added a Toilet Paper Token, for instance. Pranksters came out of the woodwork, ranging from Bitcoin

Bitcoin

Toilet Paper

Let’s start with the one that appears to have started it all — CoinMarketCap’s Toilet Paper Token. The cryptocurrency market data company, which has been receiving a lot of media attention lately, said it rolled out a new coin, dubbed the Toilet Paper Token, even suggesting that the coin muscled Bitcoin out of the way as the No. 1 cryptocurrency on the list with a market cap of $41 billion. Not to be outdone by its own cleverness, the team behind CMC also channeled their inner ICO with a Toilet Paper Wipe Paper, for which there is a blog dedicated.

It’s clearly a play on the scarcity of the toilet paper supply during the COVID-19 crisis combined with the inflation model of cryptocurrencies. CMC seems to have struck a chord with the cryptocurrency community, based on the dozens of replies to its post. And while it’s unclear whether it’s intentional, the “Toilet Paper Wipe Paper” describes how toilet paper was “conceived in China.” Incidentally, so was coronavirus.

Craig Wright

What would April Fools’ Day be without a Craig Wright/Satoshi joke? The team over at Trust Crypto Wallet has us covered, announcing to its Twitter followers that “Craig Wright has been confirmed as Satoshi Nakamoto” before letting the cat out of the bag that it was a joke. The tweet was met with laughter and suggestions that a better joke might be to suggest that Craig Wright admitted he’s not Bitcoin’s creator.

Bull Market

Twitter account “StopAndDecrypt” couldn’t let the opportunity go by without crashing the party for Bitcoin bulls. While much of the cryptocurrency community is waiting for another 2017-like bull run in the Bitcoin price, especially with the halving event weeks away, StopAndDecrypt teased that it was all a joke. The cryptocurrency community didn’t seem to find any humor in it for some reason.

Rainbows and Unicorns

Bitcoin maximalists couldn’t resist the opportunity to pick on rival cryptocurrency and blockchain, Ethereum

Touche’, says Ethereum Foundation researcher Vlad Zamfir.

Not to be outdone, Bitfinex had some fun at its own expense.

Perhaps a good way to sum up April Fools’ Day 2020 in the cryptocurrency community is with closing thoughts from Twitter user Jason Yanowitz.

Of course, if we could just hit the refresh button on 2020 altogether, the cryptocurrency community along with the rest of the world probably wouldn’t mind too much.
