Bitcoin Rollercoaster Guy
Bitcoin Rollercoaster Guy was created in early 2013 by Reddit user Brainless Tales. It symbolised the often fast fluctuations in the Bitcoin Price, with many Reddit users comparing its movements to a rollercoaster.
At first, the creation didn’t take off, with the original Reddit post receiving 0 upvotes, however, it has since become a symbol of Bitcoin’s price movements, and can be found across the Bitcoin space.
Brainless Tales described the inspiration on his website as “coming from all the talk of the price being a roller coaster ride."
Reddit users have since created different versions of the Rollercoaster Guy, with u/btc-has-value even putting him on the Moon.
In November 2019, MtSocks released their monthly sock in the theme of Bitcoin Rollercoaster Guy
