Mark Zuckerberg introduced the world to his two goats “Bitcoin” and “Max” and sparked a meme fest. He posted their picture with the caption “My goats: Max and Bitcoin”. The photo got excessive attention because of the mention of Bitcoin.
Social media was soon flooded with memes and speculations. While many users joked about the name that he might eat the “Bitcoin”. Others speculated that he might sell “Bitcoin”. Someone joked that at least he bought one Bitcoin.
A Twitter user went on to suggest that maybe Mark Zuckerberg is a Bitcoin Maximalist i.e. people who think Bitcoin is the greatest cryptocurrency of all time. This is in sharp contrast with Facebook’s plans to enter the market.
