In a recent tweet, Bitcoin educator and developer Udi Wertheimer criticized several prominent figures in the Bitcoin community for their lack of response to a new project announcement by a multibillion-dollar company.
Wertheimer goes on to suggest that these individuals are waiting for someone else to take the fall before publicly supporting the project. While some users came to the defense of those mentioned, pointing out that many are likely working on similar projects behind the scenes, others agreed with Wertheimer’s sentiment.
“MULTIBILLION DOLLAR COMPANY ANNOUNCES BITCOIN ORDINAL PROJECT. bitcoin magazine: 0 tweets. saylor: 0 tweets. maxi podcasters: 0 tweets. what a bunch of clowns lmao I CANNOT.”
The situation raises questions about the relationship between the Bitcoin community and larger corporations, particularly those that have traditionally been viewed as outside of the cryptocurrency space. It also highlights the potential risks associated with public endorsement, particularly in a rapidly changing industry like cryptocurrency.
While it is unclear what the multibillion-dollar company in question is, or what their Bitcoin ordinal project entails, it is clear that there is some hesitation among certain prominent figures in the Bitcoin community to publicly endorse the project.
It is worth noting that the Bitcoin community has historically been wary of corporate involvement in the space, with some seeing it as antithetical to the decentralized ethos of the cryptocurrency. However, as Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have grown in popularity, more and more companies have expressed interest in exploring the technology.
As the industry continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see how the relationship between large corporations and the Bitcoin community develops. Will more companies be welcomed into the fold, or will the community continue to prioritize decentralization and independence above all else? Only time will tell.
