Bitcoin and Honey Badger: is there any connection?

"The Bitcoin honey badger has made its way all over the internet," Roger Ver.

Didn’t you know that the honey badger is an unofficial Bitcoin mascot?

Honey badger itself is the very tough animal, he is not afraid of bee attacks, he eats snakes, and in general, he just doesn’t care 🙂

The story started with a viral video titled “The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger (original narration by Randall)”, uploaded to YouTube on January 18th, 2011.

Be careful, swear words are present*

The original footage was taken from a National Geographic special.

Later on Roger Ver, the former CEO of Memorydealers a computer-parts reseller that in 2011 became the first company to accept bitcoins, places a billboard located about half a mile from Memorydealers (between the El Camino Real and Highway 101). This billboard shows the honey badger and Bitcoin.

Subsequently, the honey badger became a very influential symbol in the Bitcoin world. There are a lot of Bitcoin-badger related names, companies, and events in the industry. For instance:

HoneyBadger – Canada’s network of bitcoin kiosks. In simple terms, it is a network of cryptocurrency vending machines – kiosks that facilitate the purchase and sale of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. You can buy cryptocurrency with cash or sell cryptocurrency for cash instantly. At this time HoneyBadger does not provide in-person or online brokerage services and remittance services. HoneyBadger also offers a crypto-backed lending program. Using Bitcoin as collateral, borrow Canadian Dollars without having to sell your precious coins.

Bitcoin Honeybadger 2018 – The Baltic Honeybadger conference is the first major event in Latvia dedicated to Bitcoin and the technologies built around it. It took place in Riga, Latvia on 22-23 September 2018.

So what’s in common between Bitcoin and the honey badger?

The common is that they don’t really care about anything.

“I don’t think Bitcoin cares what the Chinese or American politicians do.” Roger Ver
