Teletubbies hint at becoming the next Bitcoiners

A tweet with a Bitcoin hashtag from the British television series has piqued the interest of many in the crypto space.

The Teletubbies, a British children’s television series that has been on the air since 1997, is showing signs its loveable characters may become the newest entrants to the crypto space.

Today the official Teletubbies Twitter account posted a message with the Bitcoin (BTC) hashtag, saying the characters were “possibly hiding” something from viewers. Two of the characters — Tinky Winky, known for his purple color, and Po, for her red — appear with laser eyes next to a giant question mark.

Eh-Oh…what could the Teletubbies be possibly hiding from us? Stay tuned for something BIG this week. #Bitcoin pic.twitter.com/fJ2NBXsENx

Modifying profile pictures to include laser eyes has become somewhat popular among prominent members of the crypto space as a symbol of adoption and general bullish sentiment. However, this typically comes from adults, not the children aged one to four target audience for Teletubbies.

Though some youths are willing and eager participants in promoting crypto, the demographic for the Teletubbies’ audience has some questioning if the tweet isn’t a set up for an April Fools’ Day joke tomorrow. Already Twitter users have jumped on the message with crypto-themed puns, pitching names for the characters that more readily fit the space:

Tether-Winky
Buy the Dipsy
Laa Laa
Poor https://t.co/wwPIM0Ikli

The announcement comes as the show celebrates its 24th anniversary. Though if it’s unclear if the Teletubbies plans to prank its 14,500 Twitter followers tomorrow with the release of a fake non-fungible token, there is always the possibility the show could be considering educating young children about cryptocurrency. Three-year-old Lily Knight went semiviral in the crypto space last month after releasing a video explaining the limited supply of Bitcoin using Skittles candy, and Elon Musk has said his 10-month-old son is a Dogecoin (DOGE) HODLer. 

“If Teletubbies start teaching kids about Bitcoin then the banks are really f**ked,” said Twitter user DeepBlueCrypto.
