As another year draws to a close in the world of Bitcoin and blockchain, we’ve decided to look back at some of our favorite cryptocurrency tweets of 2019.
Some are funny, others are weird, but we’ve loved each and every single one.
So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
The Dorsey effect
First up, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, sent a Bitcoin Lightning Network invoice in a tweet in February — and people went nuts.

He’s even shared his cryptocurrency plans with TNW.
Craig Wright won’t give up
It seems, he’s also intent on convincing everyone about how rich he is.
And if people don’t believe him, well, he just blames journalists.
Craig Wright on why news reports don’t universally acknowledge him as the #Bitcoin creator #SatoshiNakamoto

Doesn’t this remind you of a certain orange-faced man living in a very big white house?
Luckily for us, Craig Wright is omnipresent.
Broke down on the side of the road, thankfully this nice stranger helped me change my tire! He didnt give me any contact info but said his name was #Satoshi, please help me find him ✨ pic.twitter.com/4kRIpihkZO

Crypto is weird
The world of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology can get pretty weird — and this is exactly what Agrawal is alluding to here.

But, let’s be honest, would you have it any other way?
The Winklevoss twins — aka Winklevii — who claim to own approximately 1-percent of all Bitcoin in circulation have worked hard this year.
Although they are clearly enthusiastic about the technology, it doesn’t mean everyone is. And if you don’t believe me, just check out this tweet:

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and if these peoples’ faces are anything to go by, it’s not looking good for Bitcoin.
I hate the bearer of bad news, but I doubt you’ll be able to buy your morning coffee with Bitcoin anytime soon.
Life’s simple pleasures
Bitcoin is often seen as a speculative tool with many buying the cryptocurrency enticed by the possibility of making some extra cash.

Some dream of becoming cryptocurrency millionaires, others — and this speaks directly to our souls — just want to enjoy the simple life.
Admittedly, we’ve all spent way too much time writing about Facebook’s ‘cryptocurrency’ Libra, but the truth is: you seemed to care.
Nobody is talking about what the Facebook Libra coin really means.
It means your parents and grandparents are going to be asking you for help setting up their wallets. pic.twitter.com/yOPrPWBmCS

Capitalism is so beautiful.
On another note, Twitter proved cryptocurrency enthusiasts have been blessed with a good sense of humor.

And last but not least, did you know Bitcoin can fix a broken toilet?
