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.

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.

HoneyBadger also offers a crypto-backed lending program. Using Bitcoin as collateral, borrow Canadian Dollars without having to sell your precious coins.
