What better way to advertise Bitcoin than an billboard featuring an inside joke from a 2 year old Youtube meme?
Erik Voorhees has been one of Bitcoin’s biggest supporter, and probably the most well known since Bruce Wagner fell off the face of the earth. He’s been in the bitcoin game for a while and is the founder and CEO of Coinapult, a company that facilitates the transfer of bitcoins via SMS and email. He was formerly the marketing head for BitInstant and has been involved with SatoshiDICE, that Bitcoin gambling site that is killing bitcoin.
He’s decided that what bitcoin really needs to jumpstart this revolution is a small, crappy billboard in the middle of a strawberry field. A very obscure billboard actually.
Either way, Bitcoin is the honey badger of currencies and the protocol rolls on.
If you still don’t know what the Honey Badger means, well that itself is referencing this Youtube meme that’s more than 2 years old now.
Very nice guys. If that’s not the best way to overthrow the Fed then I don’t know what is.
At least that’s what most bitcoiners think. Their brains have been permanently fried to the point where anything can be related to bitcoins if you look at it hard enough.

Just got sent to us, seems legit.
One can dream, no?
I would like to introduce to you the “Cryonic FrostBitâ¢ Bitcoin Miner,” a device so revolutionary in the world of computing that its innovations could only be put to proper use in a bitcoin miner.
After the thrillingÂ successÂ of Reddit’s big Bitcoin bash, it’s no secret that the bitcoin economy is paper thin. Nevertheless, the Humble Indie BundleÂ wasÂ harassedÂ enough by Reddit to decide to accept Bitcoins as payment. This wasÂ heraldedÂ as a “wonderfulÂ achievement” by the community and just more proof thatÂ Bitcoin’sÂ economy was as strong as ever.
So how did they do? Not so well, actually.
A whopping 1/10th of a percent of sales. At least they were generous with their internet fun bux.
Twitter user @spyshakeÂ tweeted out this picture today. Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery and we’re thrilled you’ve started on this journey.

Buttcoin has turned 2 years old today, outlasting every other bitcoin business except Mt. Gox and Blockchain.info.
Happy birthday to the best bitcoin website on the internet.
It’s big news by now; the Magic: the Gathering Online eXchangeÂ (Mt. Gox) has had assets seized by ICEÂ (a division of the DHS) due to flagrantly violating the law. This made the internet angry. Well, maybe not the whole internet, but enough of it is upset to give us something to point and laugh at.
Let’s get this party started by calling people Hitler:
I KNEW IT! DHS starts seizing bank accounts of BitCoin operators ala the 3rd Reich.TYRANNY!!! fb.me/17lToKaGC
