Bitcoin is now more popular than sex

October 22, 2020

What feels better than watching Bitcoin (BTC) soar after a wave of mass adoption news? For Hodler, there aren’t many events in life more satisfying than a trip to the moon, and now the rest of the world seems to be catching up with the market’s leading cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin seems to outperform sex, at least as far as Reddit users are concerned. This may surprise those of us who spend a lot of time in the city “Internet Homepage”.

Reddit has a huge audience of 440 million users and has been a very popular destination for Bitcoin enthusiasts since the inception of the asset. While r / Bitcoin’s audience has grown dramatically since 2017, r / Sex has been a lukewarm place for years.

Since the Reddit user “u / farmingOnYieldApp” made this observation last night, the number of r / Bitcoin subscribers rose to 1,707,689, possibly due to the announcement from PayPal. while the number of Redditors talking about sex hasn’t changed much and is a little over 1.69 million. The world is really turning 180 degrees.

Bitcoin is also more popular than the Beatles, They had a spectacular year of their own in 1969 when they released Come Together and I Want You. Unfortunately, Liverpool’s Pop Phenomena only has 118,258 subscribers.

The r / Jesus subreddit is pretty deserted, but extrapolated from the r / Christianity subreddit (258,121 devoted members), Bitcoin may be even more popular among Redditors than Jesus. And speaking of Bitcoin Jesus: The subreddit that supports the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community only has 328,882 followers. Roger lake will place its hopes on reviving interest in BCH once PayPal endorses the cryptocurrency.

Despite its growing popularity Bitcoin still has a long way to go before it gets “slightly interesting”. This subreddit has a remarkable 18.2 million subscribers. R / Gaming and R / Sports also make Bitcoin seem small and insignificant.

In the meantime, there is a “happy ending” for those who cannot choose between Bitcoin and sex. Pornhub accepts Bitcoin as a payment method for its premium services.
