What Are Laser Eyes?

Laser eyes is a viral Twitter meme that is used by Bitcoiners attempting to push the price of Bitcoin (BTC) to $100,000, outlining the bullish outlook for crypto. This group is confident in the future of Bitcoin and likely to have diamond hands, meaning they are only looking to accumulate more BTC and HODL for the long term.
Prior to being used to indicate support for Bitcoin, laser eyes have been used by superheroes, including Superman and Homelander. In other words, having laser eyes is a superpower not possessed by ordinary people. The origin of laser eyes related to Bitcoin is linked to the #LaserRayUntil100 hashtag, which started in February 2021. Twitter user @CHAIRFORCE_BTC first altered their profile picture to give it laser eyes. Generally, the laser eyes meme features two red-colored laser beams emitting from the user’s eyes, although some variations in blue, green, and other colors exist. Generally, most users feature laser eyes on their profiles for a period of 24 hours, though some have continued using the meme as their profile picture since its inception.

The laser eyes campaign has seen backing from the likes of Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, and Tyler Winklevoss, co-founder and CEO of crypto exchange Gemini, and National Football League (NFL) star, Tom Brady. US Senator, Cynthia Lummins from Wyoming, who is a Bitcoin investor since 2013, also changed her Twitter profile to feature laser eyes. El Salvador’s President, Nayib Bukele, similarly added laser eyes after the nation announced the decision to make BTC legal tender. Ricardo Salinas Pliego, the third wealthiest person from Mexico, has also shown support for BTC through this meme.
