History of the Bitcoin Roller Coaster Guy
People Began Sharing
Not too long after I created and shared the original other people began sharing it. In November of 2013 he made an appearance on bitcoinity as seen below.
In 2014 fans of the gif began modifying it to suit the current price trend. 2014 into the beginning of 2015 was a major downturn in price as marked by these fan modified versions below.
In mid-2015 things started looking up. The gifs were turned around.
r/Bitcoin Coaster Madness
On January 6, 2017 the front page of r/Bitcoin went mad with the roller coaster. It was a really fun day full of ups and downs.
The following day RT tweeted the original gif promoting a story about Bitcoin.
In March 2018 artist 1Dq did a painting of the Bitcoin Roller Coaster Guy as seen here.
Cosplay Coaster Gal
At Dragon Con 2019 this super smart lady did cosplay as the Bitcoin Roller Coaster meme! This costume is superb! Look at how cleverly she achieved this greatness. More info can be found on Stinger Universe.
There’s No Stopping BTC
This energizing video is a mash up of memes and pictures posted by Michael Goldstein in March 2020. It features Queen’s song Don’t Stop Me Now. Of course it also features a few versions of your favorite coaster guy.
First Original Bitcoin Art I’ve Sold
In November 2020 I sold my first original Bitcoin art to my friend Mandrik. He has since placed it on his Bitcoin art wall which is quite impressive.
After that sale I began posting new Roller Coaster Guy art on Twitter.
New Website for Roller Coaster Guy
In late 2020 I launched the first version of this site on a different URL. Then in early 2021 I upgraded the site to the current URL. I moved and expanded this history page from the old Brainless Tales Bitcoin page.
Thanks for coming to visit. Hodl on and enjoy the ride my friend!
