Contrary to initial interpretations by many in the crypto community as an endorsement of Bitcoin, the post leverages the “Dark Brandon” meme, intertwining it with conspiracy theories surrounding the Super Bowl’s outcome. The President’s engagement with the Dark Brandon meme is not new. Indeed, his team has previously utilized it to add a touch of modern flair to his image.

The crypto community also highlighted Block CEO Jack Dorsey’s presence at the Super Bowl. Dorsey’s appearance, donning a Satoshi-themed T-shirt, served as a more direct endorsement of Bitcoin.

The President has implemented regulatory measures, including a proposed 30% tax on profits made through crypto mining. Ripple co-founder Chris Larsen has been especially critical of President Biden’s regulatory crackdown, voicing concerns over the stifling effect these policies have on American crypto innovation.
