Bitcoin is 2017's hottest trend and the number of pet-related bitcoin memes is rising faster than the elusive cryptocurrency on a good day – which is most days. Here are ten bitcoin pet memes to soothe your psyche after the inevitable crash & burn.  

 

“I Should Buy Bitcoin” Cat

The Top 10 Bitcoin Pet Memes Of 2017

So you're a Sophisticated Cat who's considering whether to buy a boat or buy bitcoins... why not both? This inevitable expression of a meme originated in a screenshot from Bjork's “Triumph of a Heart” video back in 2012. The cat appears at the 3:56 mark of the over-six-minute-long video. We tell you this because, well, who's got six minutes to spend watching Bjork be Bjork when you could be buying boats and bitcoins? (image via Techweez)   

 

Grumpy Cat Frowns On Your Bitcoin Shenanigans

The Top 10 Bitcoin Pet Memes Of 2017

No meme discussion would be complete without Grumpy Cat, aka “Tardar Sauce”, a snowshoe cat from Morristown, Arizona who frowns on, well, pretty much anything and everything. While Grumpy doesn't disdain bitcoin itself, she delights in knowing unlucky investors have lost their shirts – not that you'd know it from her expression. (image via Bitsonline 

 

Bit By The Dogecoin

The Top 10 Bitcoin Pet Memes Of 2017

“Dogecoin” featuring Kabosu the Japanese Shiba dog is a very recent outgrowth of the popular “Doge” meme dating back to late 2013. Intended to satirize the frenzy surrounding bitcoin, Dogecoin is an alternative cryptocurrency introduced at the BitcoinTalk forum under the title “Dogecoin – very currency – many coin – wow – v1.1 Released.” The value of one Dogecoin almost immediately soared to $400.80 each before plummeting to $0.0002. Sell, Mortimer, sell!! (image via Bitcoin Garden   

 

Ceiling Cat Is Watching You Calculate

The Top 10 Bitcoin Pet Memes Of 2017

An oldie but a goodie, the classic Ceiling Cat image dates back to 2003 – rumor has it the actual cat passed away in 2010. Regardless, things posted on the internet are for-evar and as such, our overhead observant kitteh lives on. Hmm, wonder how much cat food one can buy per bitcoin lately?

More Than A Bit Serious

The Top 10 Bitcoin Pet Memes Of 2017

So-called “Serious Cat” first appeared in 2005 on Humor University, a Korean image- and joke-posting community forum. His popularity may have peaked but he's still the go-to guy when anything really, really serious calls for a complementary meme. (via Catspaws 

 

Hello, This Is Bitcanine

The Top 10 Bitcoin Pet Memes Of 2017

This “Yes, This is Dog” meme featuring an oddly communicative Black Lab first appeared in October of 2011 after Tumblr blogger VivaDixies added the original caption. The image itself is even more obscure, having been lifted from a 1984 Serbian film titled Pejzaži u magli (“Landscape in the Mist”)... you probably haven't heard of it. Rumors the actors, crew and dog were paid in bitcoin have not been confirmed. (via Reddit)           

 

NyanCoin

The Top 10 Bitcoin Pet Memes Of 2017

Nyan Cat soared into cyberspace in April of 2011, boosting the popularity of Russian Blue cats and cherry Pop Tarts in his wake. Chris Torres, creator of Nyan Cat, figured he'd take it to the next level by launching NyanCoin, the first officially licensed cryptocurrency based on a cartoon character. That's one way to monetize a meme but we'll believe it when you can use NyanCoin to buy Pop Tarts. Nyom-nyom-nyom! (via The Register)       

 

I Have No Idea What I'm Investing In

The Top 10 Bitcoin Pet Memes Of 2017

The so-called “Chemistry Dog” was one of the first captioned memes featuring an animal – usually a dog – way out of its league. Originally posted on a Hong Kong-based Wordpress site back in November of 2010, the photo was photoshopped and posted at Tumblr in early 2011 by Ben Grelle (The Frogman). Further 'shopping by an anonymous user resulted in the above bitcoin-centric version which, considering the caption, seems to be a better fit. (via Steemit)     

 

Can U Dig It?

The Top 10 Bitcoin Pet Memes Of 2017

No, no you can't but wait, maybe that dog's onto something: some of the world's biggest bitcoin farms are in China, Russia and North Korea. Eventually he'll get there... hopefully for his sake, the bitcoin bubble might not have burst yet. (via M  
             
         

Bitness Cat

The Top 10 Bitcoin Pet Memes Of 2017

Did you know the “Business Cat” is real, and he has a name? Indeed, Emilio here was originally photographed wearing a necktie he'd been given as an Xmas present. Once posted online, however, the usual dark forces took over and Emilio found himself 'shopped into dozens of animal image macro memes, most of which related to office politics with a signature feline twist. Of course, it was only a matter of time before Business Cat discovered bitcoin and, being a businesslike cat, likely is a bitcoin billionaire by now. As for the rest of you... get back to work right meow! (via HoustonPress)
