Celebs who changed their profile picture to laser eye memes and joined the Bitcoin movement

A power beam flashing out of the eyes is not an unusual sight for comic lovers and those into superhero movies. Superman has laser eyes, so does Captain Marvel. However, these days laser eyes have been trending. Not because of fantastic superhero movies, but because of bitcoin, and perhaps it won’t be an exaggeration, after all, to use the superhero analogy here, since there are people who consider cryptocurrency to be purely fantastical, and far away from the neighborhood of reality.

Twitter is a space that surprises users now and then. Whether it be news, or memes, or profile pictures turning to laser eye memes out of the blue. And it came as a confusing surprise when a number of bitcoin enthusiasts decided to celebrate the new milestone of cryptocurrency touching USD $57,000. It is an unprecedented high, why not an unprecedented and quite unusual way of celebration. The idea behind the laser eyes comes from the villain Harbinger from Mass Effect 2, whose captives had a yellow beam in their eyes. And it is a symbol of ‘total control’.

Here are 15 celebrities who added another name to the trending list of Twitter;

1. Elon Musk

When it comes to bitcoin, which name is better to start a flame than Elon Musk. Musk activated his bitcoin superpower by tweeting “Just for a day,” after his profile image was changed into an anime character with glowing red eyes. After all, anything can happen in a day, and it sure did. Whoever knew that laser eyes could be this infectious!

2.Michael Saylor

The next in line is the MicroStrategy CEO, Michael Saylor. He even went on to give a nutshell version of the future power of bitcoin. Although some users weren’t really impressed with the laser eyes, and talk, it did encourage some others of the bitcoin community to join the laser eye league. After all, it’s bitcoin, a little ‘bit’ of disagreement is part of the game. Even Harbinger might have missed a few targets.

3.Tom Brady

When the twitter profile image of US Senator, Cynthia Lummis flashed a red beam, people were equal parts impressed and as is customary, equal parts unimpressed.
