Bitcoin supporters including CEOs and politicians have changed their Twitter profile pictures to display laser eyes as a way to celebrate BTC growth.
Celebrating Bitcoin Benchmarks like Mutants
At the time, Bitcoin came close to $1 trillion in market capitalization, falling short of $3,700 or 7% at $50,000. BTC breached $53,700 on Friday.
Another Twitter account alias RD BTC posted the flash eye image on late Hal Finey’s twitter display picture. The tweet was received well within the community. Finey was the first person to receive Bitcoin from its anonymous creator and developed the code in the starting years.

Corporate Executives and Politicians
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, and Micheal Saylor, the MicroStrategy CEO, were prominent individuals outside the cryptocurrency community to adopt the laser eyes trend.
Both executives have voiced strong support for Bitcoin, with Saylor in particular paving the way for corporate adoption and higher price valuations by leading his company to convert its cash balance to BTC.
MicroStrategy has been investing in Bitcoin since September of last year and plans to add another $690 million worth of BTC to the balance sheets in future. Tesla purchased $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin in January 2021, adding further hype to the bull run.
Interestingly enough, two U.S. Congress members have also joined the laser eyes movement in support of Bitcoin.
Warren Davidson, Ohio’s 8th Congressional District representative, a long-standing supporter of Bitcoin, quickly adopted the trend.
Sen. Cynthia Lummins, from the crypto-friendly U.S. state of Wyoming, also endorsed the flash eyes for a day following Elon Musk. She ended her one-day promotion with a note saying, “but my support for sound money continues.”
