• Berlin’s TV Tower was lit up with a giant Bitcoin logo on Saturday.
• The project was possibly initiated by a Twitter user, Tilo Neumann, who shared videos of the logo projected on the tower.
• Neumann invited people to come to Alexanderplatz on January 21, saying that it may get media attention.
On Saturday night, the famous Berliner Fernsehturm tower in Germany’s capital was illuminated with the Bitcoin (BTC) logo – and it wasn’t the only iconic monument to be adorned in ₿. The Berliner Fernsehturm (or Berlin Television Tower) is a 368m-tall tower in the Marien quarter (Marienviertel), right by the popular Alexanderplatz square. Opened in 1969 by the East German government, it remains a significant landmark to this day – the tallest structure in Germany, and the third-tallest in the European Union. This prominent tower was chosen as the canvas for the Bitcoin logo.
The person or group responsible for this project is unknown, but one Twitter user – Tilo Neumann – seems to have knowledge about a series of BTC promotions around Berlin. Neumann shared a video of the logo projected on the tower, calling on people to join him in Alexanderplatz on January 21. He said that the event may gain media attention. When asked why the project was initiated, despite people in Berlin being unable to invest in BTC due to their lack of financial resources, Neumann replied that it is about the future of our finances. He argued that some people are “sticking to it”, and that “we” have decided to draw attention to Bitcoin.
The projection of the Bitcoin logo onto the Berliner Fernsehturm has made a powerful statement – one that has been seen around the world. As Bitcoin continues to grow in popularity, it is likely that we will see more of these kinds of events, as people continue to show their support for the cryptocurrency.
