Crypto Tweets Of This Year On Twitter
The year for the crypto market has been drastic, however, tweets about crypto garnered a lot of attention on social media. Billionaire and CEO of Twitter Elon Musk is in the first position for having received the most likes for a tweet about cryptocurrencies.
Here is the list of crypto tweets:
Tweet by Elon Musk
Musk made a meme referring to the theft of FTX customers’ money in a tweet from November 18 that has received 789,200 likes. He also makes fun of the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for not looking into the matter more thoroughly.
This tweet quickly rose to the top of the platform’s “image of the day” section when a user suggested that the wording be changed to reflect that FTX owes “almost nine billion dollars.”
Tweet by Vitalik Buterin
The Merge, an event that marked the completion of the Ethereum blockchain‘s shift from a proof-of-work consensus to a proof-of-stake blockchain, was announced by Vitalik Buterin, the co-creator of Ethereum, on September 15.
The network’s energy consumption and block verification time were reduced by 99% as a result of this “huge moment” for the ecosystem, according to Buterin’s tweet. This increased daily block production.

Tweet by CZ
Third on the list is a tweet dated Aug. 2 from CZ, the CEO and co-founder of Binance, with the third-most likes.
The Wormhole drain of $325 million in February and the 625 million USD theft from the Ronin blockchain in March were the two largest bridge hacks in 2022. On that day, the Nomad crypto bridge had lost more than $190 million to hackers.
The tweet from CZ probably alludes to the conflict between trustworthy and dishonest players in the market and encourages adopting cryptocurrency for its intended use.
Tweet by Nayib Bukele
Nayib Bukele, the president of El Salvador, the first nation to make bitcoin legal tender, tweeted on May 9 that he had “purchased the dip” in the cryptocurrency.
This tweet, which has 100,200 likes, was posted on the day the Terra stablecoin UST dropped to 95 cents amid extreme volatility. The bear market for this year began when Terra’s native asset, LUNA, fell to zero at the end of that week.
The average price of bitcoin was around $30,000 this week in May, levels last seen in July 2021, but the price has been steadily declining throughout the year. From Nov. 17 onward, Bukele committed to purchasing one bitcoin daily at an average cost of $16,815 per coin, according to NayibTracker.

Tweet by Michael Saylor
With a tweet sent out earlier in the morning on the same day as Bukele, MicroStrategy creator Michael Saylor comes in fifth.
Saylor, who is regarded as a bitcoin maximalist, tweeted that it was “time to get back to work” next to a picture of himself working behind a counter at McDonald’s while wearing a uniform.
Saylor was making reference to the joke about needing to obtain a fast food job if the price of cryptocurrencies kept down, which reflected the declining price of Bitcoin.
Tweet by SBF
Sam Bankman-Fried, the disgraced former CEO of FTX, garnered the most likes for his thread of apologies. He claimed at the time, “I fucked up and should have done better.”
The 22-part tweet was posted the day before Bankman-Fried resigned as CEO of the FTX Group and the cryptocurrency exchange, along with about 130 other companies connected to the FTX Group, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
