Gemini Founder Tyler Winklevoss Mocks US Senate With BTC Ad Budget

  • Tyler Winklevoss raises new dust on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) after he says the Senate endorsed a $2.5 trillion ad for Bitcoin (BTC).
  • His tweets resulted in a full-blown debate on Twitter.
  • BTC, ETH, and other altcoins are still struggling to regain its position.

Gemini co-founder, Tyler Winklevoss is well known for his open criticism of the U.S Senate. The Twitter space has been a safe medium for him to express most of his sometimes controversial opinions about the happenings in the United States, especially, concerning their views on Cryptocurrency.

Just like any other day of tweeting, Tyler woke the streets of Twitter with yet another debatable tweet. However, a closer look at what he entitled “breaking: Senate OKs $2.5 trillion dollar advertisement for bitcoin” was a sarcastic headline just for laughs following the recently approved Infrastructure bill. The controversies surrounding the U.S government about tax reforms and inflation aggravated Tyler with several of his tweets to attest to that. Then again, Senator Elizabeth Warren’s tweet calling for a change in tax code in what she referred to as “the rigged tax code” as a result of Elon Musk being named Time’s Person of the Year, compounded Tyler Winklevoss’ rage.

Moreover, Tyler’s tweet at the time of writing got over 15 thousand likes, 2.5 retweets, and more than four hundred plus comments. While many understood the joke, some felt he was referring to the recent CoinMarketCap glitch that occurred earlier today.

Furthermore, the entire crypto market has been going through a bearish trend. BTC has taken the most hits in the past few weeks after an ATH of $65,823.73 on November 8, 2021. Additionally, since hitting the new highs, Bitcoin has been steadily declining and even an attempt to regain its position with a $50,000 on December 12 failed to last long.

At press time, the CoinMarketCap glitch has been resolved and Bitcoin is up 2.75% in the past 24 hours. BTC currently trades at $48,139.49 while Ethereum’s price is $3,849.96 per unit.
