Crypto Community Embraces April Fools Day Pranks

While much of the mainstream media decided against running pranks this year due to the seriousness of the coronavirus crisis — the crypto community decided to have some fun anyway.

One of the earliest, and funniest, was CoinMarketCap listing ‘Toilet Paper Token’ as the number one cryptocurrency above Bitcoin — the circulating supply, naturally, was ‘out of stock’.

CryptoPotato broke the news that Satoshi Nakamoto predicted the coronavirus outbreak in the original Bitcoin whitepaper. It was a pretty convincing story too, thanks to a cleverly fabricated image of the ‘introduction’ to the whitepaper where Satoshi argues the economic system can come to a standstill “in times of severe economic recessions or by the outbreak of a novel virus”.
