Joe Biden Bitcoin supporter? The meme of the US President with laser eyes

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, appeared yesterday on X with his laser-eyed image, typical of Bitcoin supporters. 

Biden has become a bitcoiner? Apparently not. But the team in charge of social media on behalf of the President wanted to copy the crypto aesthetic for political purposes. 

Joe Biden and the meme about X with laser eyes: is the President of the USA a supporter of Bitcoin?

Yesterday, a meme with his image and laser eyes, typical of a bitcoiner, was posted on the official X account of the President of the USA, Joe Biden. The natural question arises: Has Biden become a supporter of Bitcoin?

“Just as we designed it”

According to what is reported by CoinDesk, it seems that Biden has not suddenly become a supporter of Bitcoin

In practice, the image shared by the team of the President of the USA refers to the “Dark Brandon”, a meme that Democratic activists are trying to push.

These are therefore issues outside the crypto space, although today, Bitcoin (BTC) has surpassed the $50,000 threshold.

Joe Biden did not become a supporter of Bitcoin

To know more about what lies behind the Biden meme with laser eyes on X, it seems to be a response to the Kansas City Chiefs’ defeat against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. 

In practice, Biden with inflamed eyes would be a response to the right-wing conspiracy theory, according to which the Biden administration would have rigged the Super Bowl to secure the support of billionaire superstar Taylor Swift.

In this regard, as reported by Mashable, the President would have posted the unsettling portrait that liberals have reinterpreted and used since 2022, to depict Biden as a superhero.

“The genesis of the Dark Brandon meme is an internet peak, which means that its story is obscure and difficult to trace. As explained by Vox in 2023, the meme seems to have originated during a NASCAR Xfinity Series race in October 2021, when NBC journalist Kelli Stavast interpreted the crowd chants of “F**k Joe Biden!” as “Let’s go Brandon!” during a live interview with the winning driver Brandon Brown”.

Not by chance, Swift has already campaigned for Biden in 2020, and has recently started dating Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs. 

In addition to this, Swift’s current fame, with her Eras tour considered the highest-grossing of all time, could be a strong support for Biden’s party. 

BTC surpasses the $50,000 wall

The +5% pump in the last 24 hours has brought the price of Bitcoin to exceed the $50,000 threshold.

At the time of writing, in fact, BTC is worth $50,070. But that’s not all. This price is a figure that has not been seen since December 2021, the month following BTC’s all-time high of $69,000.

We are at a -27% level to reach the ATH (All-Time High) of Bitcoin. This is why some people believe that in 2024 it will be easy for BTC to surpass its own all-time high.
