Only In Crypto: A Croissant Reviews 2022’s Funniest Moments
2022 was one of the hardest years for crypto and digital assets; the industry saw highs and lows and some of its funnier moments since its inception. Via Twitter CroissantETH tried to review and account for some of these “absolutely unforgettable” moments.
A Review Into The Best Crypto Memes
Last year, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, Ethereum, underwent a major overhaul. The cryptocurrency shifted from a Proof-of-Work (PoW) to a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus after completing “The Merge.”

The Ethereum community also created some of the funniest and most memorable memes of 2022. CroissantETH recalled the time when the inventor of Ethereum attracted attention due to the following picture.
This picture was transformed into countless memes, discussions, and even price speculation. The pseudonym user said about this unforgettable crypto moment:
Vitalik Buterin took a picture with someone, which revealed something absolutely massive. Ethereum pumped quite a bit after this was released.
Buterin is often the subject of “memetization” across the year, and 2022 was no exception. In addition to his massive reveal, the inventor of Ethereum makes headlines for his poor skills in setting up a microphone. This incident is one of many times where he struggles with sound.

The Ropsten Ethereum merge was… uneventful to say the least. Although Vitalik Buterin can build complex decentralized networks of scale, he can’t seem to figure out the microphone. pic.twitter.com/2SuWH3x68p — .eth (@CroissantEth) January 6, 2023
There Is No Second Best
The number one cryptocurrency by market cap, Bitcoin, and its community also created some of 2022’s funniest moments. This community often stands out for its passion and commitment to the original cryptocurrency.
As BTC trended to the downside, users viralized the following interview with Michael Saylor, the former CEO at software company MicroStrategy. At the high of the bull run, Saylor advised all BTC investors, forever elevating the words “there is no second best” to the Crypto Hall of Fame:

Can Developers Do Something
Regulators and legislators worldwide starred in several memes and funniest moments in 2022. CroissantETH noted the intervention of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Gary Gensler, before Congress.
Senator Elizabeth Warren, a public crypto opponent, demanded more clarity around regulations for the nascent asset class. The Senator has been paying more attention to the industry since 2020, sending letters to Gensler and others to provide their views on digital assets.
During the SEC Chair’s intervention in Congress, Warren notoriously demanded a fix for the high fees users were paying on the Ethereum blockchain. The interaction highlighted the Senator’s knowledge of blockchain technology and digital assets.

In It For The Tech?
Crypto influencers made the memorable moments ranking. While these individuals provided too many of these to count, CroissantEth highlighted the time that “Crypto Bitlord” set his apartment on fire after allegedly losing over $350,000.
However, Ben “BitBoy” Armstrong probably takes the prize as one of the most controversial. The crypto influencer promotes himself as a “champion of the people.” However, there were accusations about Armstrong allegedly using his audience for his benefit.
In the following video, Armstrong denies these accusations and reiterates his alleged motivations to participate in the industry:

CroissantEth highlighted many other memorable moments worth checking out. Whatever 2023 brings for the crypto industry, one thing seems certain, this industry will remain one of the most innovative and entertaining in the world for the foreseeable future.
