April’s Fools Roundup: Crypto Edition

April’s Fools Roundup: Crypto Edition 101
Source: Twitter

Love it or hate it, April’s Fools is a favorite almost-holiday for many, and crypto is no exception. Although the market boom from this morning might seem like an elaborate, slightly late April’s Fools prank, we’re happy that the pranks this year remained more benign and did not cost users all that much. Except hope and happiness - because so many of them sounded great!

Ranging from fake partnerships to favorite scam-related figures (and adding a funny KYC (know your customer) questionnaire or two as well), this year’s April’s Fools pranks are sure to make you at least chuckle, if not laugh outright.

Samson Mow, chief strategy officer at major blockchain technology firm Blockstream, also had some news to announce. Imagine the hype if MasterCard decided to partner with a crypto-related name.

Watch the latest reports by Block TV.

Sure, it’s a joke, but it would also be a genius move for a privacy coin.

Now THIS is one of those jokes that make your heart skip a beat before you realize what date it is.

And another of the same sort as the previous one - it’s a good thing we’re not that unlucky.

__

Then again, there are those that are too far-fetched to be true (or not?), but make you laugh nonetheless.

Well… I could do with a Big Mac right now. We also need a ChickenNuggetCoin - maybe next year?

MyEtherWallet announced that they need to implement KYC measures for the first time. “What’s your father’s maiden name” should become a common KYC question.

__

NOT MY PARENTS PLEASE!

__

Here I was, ready with a rat poison-related comment, and then I remembered the date…

WASSA WASSA WASSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP!

The signature is legit, what the hell are you all talking about?
