While the cryptocurrency industry is mostly focused on technology and data, the people in our industry are not without creativity. This is evident not only in the various solutions and inventions they create, but also in their artistic (and often humorous) work.
Over the years, people from the crypto space have developed songs based on distributed technology as well as their jokes and humor. Some of these songs are parodies of mainstream hits that are being replaced with crypto texts, while others are originals that can only be found in the digital asset industry.
Here are some cryptocentric songs worth listening to.
“Bitcoin pls go to the moon”
A classic in the crypto space, “Bitcoin pls go to moon”, came after Bitcoin (BTC) fell significantly in price after its bull run in 2017. The YouTube channel 1thousandx released this lyric work on November 6, 2018. The song calls on Bitcoin to raise the price and “stop going sideways now”. At the time of the song, Bitcoin was trading more than $ 10,000 lower than its then high of nearly $ 20,000 and had been consolidating in that space for a remarkable period of time, according to TradingView data. The song contained sentiments from crypto industry figures, Michael Novogratz and Tone Vays.
“Banksters Paradise (A Bitcoin Song)”

The Queen’s song “Bohemian Rhapsody” is one of the most popular lyric works in the world. A YouTube channel called Crypto karaoke made a cryptocentric parody of the tune. “Bull markets come, bull markets go, HODL high, HODL low”, it says in the lyrics – unlike in the original: “Just come, just go, a little high, a little low.” The revamped line pays homage to HODL, a popular term in the crypto space. Although the term has no set definition, it usually means holding assets regardless of market fluctuations.
“Old Town Road (Bitcoin Version)”

Although the channel isn’t directly geared towards crypto, it has released some musical crypto creations. One such video turns Lil Pump’s song “Gucci Gang” into a bitcoin rap remix called “HODL GANG”. The song was released in December 2017 near the peak of the previous Crypto Bull market and it talks about various aspects of Crypto investing, Crypto history, etc.
“BITCONNECT EDM REMIX”
Bitconnect is a crypto scam that was rampant during the 2017 crypto bull run. Bitconnect hosted an event where Carlos Matos, one of the project’s investors, gave a speech that started with exuberant singing, shouting, and generally hilarious show-style.
